Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

Super interested, this is the exact bike I've been looking for. Where are you located?

Oahu Hawaii!

Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

Hawaii? I wouldn’t know where to begin in gauging moped prices there. Not many ever made it there, from what I understand, and a MKII Magnum is a lot more desirable than most mopeds.

Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

Shouldn't be that slow. Mine hauled my 250lb ass up to 35 np. Probably the pipe, I had an estoril on mine.

You did replace the shift dampeners and flipped the clutch right? Rebuild? Doesn't matter if ur selling it I guess.lol

Anyway, it's worth $800-900 buckaroonies.

Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

Probably closer to $1200-1500 me thinks... but you’ll have to find a buyer first.

On the island, I would not go less than $1500, as that's what it would cost just to get another one shipped over from the main land.

Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

1500 if it runs right. If you had the engine covers and rear rack it would help.

I was under the impression puchs and espeically magnums are sought after in HI.

Big Mahalo to schmiddy, Aaron, jonathan, dirty30 and Avery! I rode a kitted Puch cobra 9 years ago owned by a buddy of mine- the bike was fast and squirly and I felt like it was going kill me..I was hooked; told myself I would own a Puch one day.

I appreciate your help. Now I’m Not tripping too hard that I have $2000+ Into this bike

Cheers

2 grand in HI is fair, There was a old time puch lover from HI (don’t know what island tho) named Gene who was good guy, I haven’t heard of in awhile, do you know if he is still around ?

Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

Roffman- have not heard of Gene but I know we have a pretty solid moped community here in Hawaii.

I was fortunate to hook up with an OG named Fishman who worked at a local moped shop in the early 80s- he taught me points and rebuilt 3 ZA50s for me with factory PUCH tooling. If not for him I’d still be scratching my head.

Re: 1979 Puch Magnum MKII

It would help to get the correct dash.
