20 years ago, when I was 15 years old, I had a Motomarina Sebring, and cruising around on that thing was one of the best periods of my life. I put close to 12,000 miles on that Motomarina before I got my car license. I learned the basics of how to work on a motor along the way, and souped up the little Morini motor with a bore kit, larger intake, hi-po carb, and exhaust pipe. I was clocked at 52mph once, and was damn proud of it!
Fast forward to today, I ride motorcycles avidly (all BMWs now, though I've owned many brands over the years) and today I found a classic Puch 2-speed A/D on Craig's List, and impulsively purchased it for $300.00. It's the first time I've ridden a moped in about 18 years. It runs fine and is in good shape, save for the taped-together switch housings and little odds and ends. Once I clean it up, it will be a looker.
I may have some questions along the way since Puch is new to me. I do notice the carb's missing any air box or filtering whatsoever, and some other little things may need replacing. Any advice as to good, inexpensive vendors would be greatly appreciated. Anything else I need to know about this model? This one has about 1900 miles on it.
I'll post more questions and pictures as they come up.
