Steyer Daimler Puch - Junk?

Friend gave me a 1966 MS 50 Puch with a complete engine. I know very little but wondered if anyone knew more. Does the ignition run primarily off of the magneeto? If so, there are three other wires comming from the same area on the engine block. Curious as to know what they are like. How many speeds? Supposedly automatic? What kind of engine performance should I expect if I get it running? Please help if you can.

damn.. one man's junk is another man's treasure..

go HERE and grab all the Puch manuals..

Re: Steyer Daimler Puch - Junk?

lots of hits on google for the MS 50 .. one guy felt the need to make videos break>

Puch builds bikes it's own way and any manual will probably have useful info, but you might find a manual appropriate for that particular bike with a search..

If it's in good condition,it's worth a lot.If it's just a pile of bent up rusted metal,then it is junk.

Puch are awesome mopeds... easy to work on... and very highly regarded... consider yourself lucky!

Do a quick search on eBay for Puch and you will see that most parts are available and fairly cheap :P

Most were 2 speeds, manual shifter along with clutch lever on the left grip. Just look there and you will see the number of positions for the shifter. Not junk if it is any half decent condition.

I'm going to attempt to get her running today, if resources permit. Seems like everything is there so I don't have much worry.

Definitely not junk! If ya wanna dump your bike, get ahold of me.

I have a '58 & a '54. Love'em to death. So far, my favorite ped; and I've ridden since '77 on lots of kinds.

To even ask the question! Anyway, you'll fall in love with yours too.

Parts?
