WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

Kevin Tyler /

Hey guys first post here. I bought a Puch Maxi that seems to have had a leak in the frame covered up by the seller.

Looking to buy a replacement without leaks, clean VIN, minimal rust.

Located in South Florida. okay with shipped or local pickup, just trying to keep costs in the double digits

Thanks

Looks pretty clean. Think you can just fix that leak post some pics of the crack or the rust if its that bad.

i would drain the tank and let it dry out. and then try to braze the hole up. i did it on snowblower gas tanks dont see why it wouldnt work here.... could also try some pig putty (industrial strength Steel repair stick) . Even POR15 Liner. all of these are an easy fix for that frame and wouldnt require the much work.

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

Probably be easier to drain/clean and find a bodyshop welder to lay a bead next to the original factory weld...

Nope, the inside is probably horrible too so get a new used non-rusted frame,

I’ve had mint looking frames on the outside literally fold in half on me because of concealed rust of the way down below in tank,

I agree! Rust is always three times as bad in the opposite side you can't see.

damn, ive got the exact same problem and am also in need of a maxi frame.

im going to go ahead and piggyback off this post; if anybody has their hands on a maxi frame with decent tank condition please send me a PM.

that CList maxi bare metal frame is perfect for what i've got in mind. i'd gladly pay cost + shipping for a frame like that

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

i might be running into a couple nice frames this weekend. what does one go for shipped?

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

No idea what the shipping price would end up being but most of the ones I've seen sell are in the $40-70 range before shipping. It's not hard to find them being listed for $200+, but ofc that's just the listing price.

I was able to work something out. Thanks everyone

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

Nevermind. Local deal fell through. Still looking for a frame!

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

$50 as new you pay ship

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

Can post pictures of inside tank if interested...

Re: WTB: Puch Maxi Frame

^^ That's a great deal there! You guys better snatch this quick, or I will and I don't need one.
