I'm starting a new project with puch maxi N. It's in pretty bad condition overall right now and I'm not sure what to do.
My goal is to end up with a bike that tops around 40 mph (I don't need more - it will be used for a daily commute in traffic), and has good acceleration in the lower end (that's more important for me for trafic lights statrs).
I could just clean it and make it run, but since I need to unscrew every bolt for cleaning and derusting and put all that work into it, I'm thinking I could tune it a little better:
1. Go for Airsal 65cc cylinder (with stock crank if it tourns out usable, just put new bearings and seals)
2. Get a 3 segment clutch with stiffer springs (https://www.puchshop.de/puch-engine-parts/puch-clutch-parts/clutch-3-segments.html), and tune the clutch to engage abowe 3-4k RPM
3. Get a cigar 28 mm exhaust
4. Buy a 14mm or 15 mm bing carb
5. Go for 15x45 gearing
Do you think it is worth it? Or is it better to stick to stock cylinder, and invest in a better clutch and possiblly a better pipe?
