I am doing a frame up resto on a junked Puch Magnum II. It has the snowflake style wheels and I am having trouble getting working brakes. My first ever venture into moped work...
The rear brake shoes are pretty badly worn but will slow down a rider-ladden bike from about 5 mph to a stop in about half of a city block. The front wheel has no shoes at all, just an empty hub. I guess its a good thing I dont have the engine working yet.
I understand that the spoke and mag style wheels use an 80mm brake shoe set, but this does not seem to be the case for the hubs with the snowflake wheels.
I ordered a "Puch 90mm brakeshoes" from 1997mopeds, but when they arrived they were in fact 80 mm, which I take it would work for the other, more common wheel types, but not for me.
Does any one know if there are some other brakeshoes that I could use on my snowflake style wheels/hubs? And where I might find them?
