hi. im purchasing a 'project bike' of sorts. its a 1977 puch maxi and it needs a lot of work. this will be my first moped and im looking to learn how to fix it up and make it run, im up for a challenge but im hoping i could find someone to help me learn? i live near kalamazoo but i'll only be home for one week before i go off to college. i'll be around the week of august 17-23rd if anyone would think its fun to teach a girl about mopeds and help her fix one up.
the gas tank needs to be cleaned, and it needs a throttle assembly, a left brake, the cables put on, a new seat, and maybe a paint job. any anything else if it doesnt get running with all of that. i have a few friends who fix up old sports cars. i dont know how similar that is though.
im just afraid i wont be smart enough to fix up a bike with just a repair manual and common sense. i want to get it running as soon as i can. thanks to anyone if you can help!
