Puch turn signals...

Hi there!

Where I live, mopeds have to have flashers (turning signal lights) to be lisenced for the street... I happen to have stumbled on a potentially good deal for a 1978 Puch which doesn't have signal lights...

How easy it is to add this kind of feature to a moped and how should I expect to pay for it?



Re: Puch turn signals...

if you can fing a set of cateye turn signals, it's very easy to hook them up...they run on a seperate battery.

I'm planning on hooking up some signals to my '78 Puch. I'm hoping that my magneto will be able to drive them (it should, even though it's sort of a weird AC/DC mix). I purchased a small license plate frame that had the signals already on it on Ebay, this was meant for, of all things, a Harley. I also got a 3-way switch that looks almost identical to the one on my Puch now (that little chrome job w/the push lever on the side). Now I have to wait for all that to get here, and in the meantime I'm going to find a 6V flasher relay, which shouldn't be too hard. If you're interested in going this route vs the battery option, reply and I'll post some pics or something once I get them working.

Re: Puch turn signals...

there is one wire to solder so the yellow wire on the light switch

a VERY easy install

the only problem you might have is a bad battery

i had to buy 5 seperate sub-C batteries with solder tabs from zbattery.com as my old battery pack was bad

oh yea

i also had to replace the original switch with a new SPDT toggle switch

your lucky to find a kit

i searched for 1 year before finding one
