I am thinking of purchasing a 1980 maxi located around the corner from me for $200.
It starts, idles, stops, and the tank is clean. The only thing wrong is a terrible noise. The best way I can describe it is that it sound like when you whistle with a blade of grass, sorta like a kazoo. I think it's a bearing noise, but I just want to know if it is more likely the big end bearing in the crank, or is this something that can only be known once disassembled. I have had five Puchs all with e50s, and I haven't run into this problem yet. Thanks!
