I'm pretty sure I could buy several running Puchs for the money I'm about to cough up for this project.

And to clear things up..I have some experience myself, but never had an E50. I'm pretty sure it will fit just fine. This moped actually had it stock until 1990'ish when Tunturi for some reason changed the E50/Bing carb to the Morini with Dellorto carb. It might not be a straight fit, but nothing a little welding can't sort.

I also have sandblasting equipment available, so might do the frame, too.

I will order bits and pieces every month, and hopefully have everything ready before next season.

Now I'm waiting for the engine to arrive from the Netherlands. First step is to clean it up, and decide on what crankshaft I want. That will be the next order, along with clutch, all the bearings, seals, clips, bolts, washers etc..

I was thinking of getting a Swiing crankshaft. I'm sure any quality crank would do, especially since I'm not building any kind of top-end monster racer, but the Swiing just seems..nice :) And Swiss-made. Can't be bad!

They have it at Puchshop..

Rito is my second alternative, but I'm reading really mixed reviews about them. I guess my previous argument stands here also, any crank would actually do and getting some expensive fancy racing crank is pretty much overkill.

..but is there any harm in having one? (edited)
