Puch Maxi throttle cable

Nicolas Anbeek /

I busted the throttle cable on my 1975 Puch Maxi. I'm wondering if I have to replace it, or will a bicycle brake cable work? Anybody have a spare throttle cable?

Thanks very much!

Re: Puch Maxi throttle cable

does your throttle use the cable with the bead on the end or is it a screw type?

It uses the bead on the end.

That style is problematic because the cable end pops out...

You can replace it with the screw-in type by popping out the pin that holds it in place and switch it for a tiny piece with the screw style..

You can buy the cable for like 12 bucks at handybikes with the little piece included to make the switch!
