Feeler: WTT Puch Maxi N Rigid for Hobbit (SE MI)

I snagged a rigid maxi project recently and am just getting everything on it to make it a running bike. It's not quite completed, but it will be soon, so I thought I'd throw a feeler out there to see if anyone around southeast Michigan would want to do a trade. Deets:

Body: Red Maxi N frame, looks like it might have been rattlecanned at some point. No rust from what I can tell. Tank looks pretty good. Has decals. No front or rear fenders. Has rear rack. No taillight. Has rubber chain guard, and original wheels with correct Maxi N rear brakeplate. Full set of Margura controls, headlight.

Powerplant: Came with a 1hp E50. I have a #22 2hp cylinder and matching head, painted black. I still have the original cylinder and head, which are banged up, if you want to have more original parts or something. 14mm bing carb + 14mm intake. Stock maxi exhaust with custom mounting bracket setup. Stock air box complete with white tube for ultimate air restriction.

So like I said, I literally just got this bike a few days ago, am going to make it run correctly, and don't really want another Puch in the stable. I'm very very interested in a well-running Honda Hobbit PA50II or a 1980 or later one (which is also a PA50II, of course...). CDI is a bonus. Can be stock or modded, as long as it RUNS WELL.

This is just a feeler to see if anyone has interest. Shoot me an email. I will have pictures in a day or two. The bike could be running as early as tonight. We can meet halfway within reason, too, like 150 miles or so?

Oh it also has the original 12mm carb + intake. If you combine these with the 1hp cylinder and head, you can have a very very slow moped of your very own!

i checked that bike out about a month ago. It looked nice in the pics but in person the paint was pretty dull. Looked like it used to be yellow at one point but it is a solid frame.

I might be powdercoating it soon, either way.

i would consider a trade.

i suck at responding to emails. maybe next time i am in town.

maybe some one else will hook it up before then.

Yeah maybe if you responded to my chats or emails EVER. :) Talk to me online when you see me, bengry. I'll have this bike running by the end of the week if I can get a long drive-side chain. Once it's running well I might start getting itchy powdercoating fingers. Just shout at me.
