'79 Puch Newport L 1.5hp

pro's... 100% complete bike sans headlight, excellent chains and rims and sprockets/pedals, sidecovers, all controls and switches intact, bar-end mirror, complete 1.5hp e50 and bing, nice thick heavy duty stock seat and clean chrome rack/rails, clean body/fenders, turns over easy, sparks, excellent pipe, great cables and levers, tires hold air, etc.

con's... rusty tank, paint rust at the tank/frame joint, motor bearings are for sh*t noisy.

decisions decisions..... might make it an offseason project, very reluctant to part it, but entertaining email offers as a whole bike. pittsburgh pickup or regional delivery options, can take tons more pics if need be.

regional trades considered as well for ciao stuff... vespa gurus email me for details

Re: '79 Puch Newport L 1.5hp

you should add its a black model to the pros list, seems like all the ones around here are burgundy, too bad the paint is crappy.

Re: '79 Puch Newport L 1.5hp

true dat... pro's: stock gloss black paint, stock red and gold logos in nice shape. Actually, nice condition paint and decals overall with the exception of that spot right where the tank and frame joint is... will give it a sponge bath and updated body pics by request.
