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?
