Yeah, this sounds exactly like what happened to you. And it was AFTER I installed the fuel filter, as well. What method did you use to clean your tank? I'm thinking it is gonna be kinda difficult on the Maxi...
Nick, that's exactly what it felt like. Someone putting on the brakes every couple of seconds. I did just install an inline fuel filter prior to that ride, so hopefully that will help. I'll give cleaning the carb a shot this weekend and see if that helps. Hopefully I don't cause any other problems along the way.Silverfox, I'm not exactly clear on what 4-stroking means and h
I guess you could say power then no power. But it the sensation was like the bike was compression braking or something over and over. So it wasn't like I just couldn't get any power and the bike was gradually slowing down, it was also like the brake was being pumped, but obviously it was the engine.
So I recently acquired a 1978 Puch Maxi Luxe. This is one of two mopeds I just got for the girlfriend and I, and are our first, so I'm new to the moped world and 2-strokes in general. With that said, we took the mopeds out last night and the Maxi started lurching about 20 minutes into the ride. My girlfriend would be going about 20-25 mph, and it just the engine just started dying, but in
Hey y'all,Looking for a well-running, decent to great looking moped in Seattle for my girlfriend. If anybody knows of anything available or has anything for sale, lemme know! Looking for something in the sub-$800 range.Thanks!Kyle
Posted a wanted ad on craigslist and his daughter contacted me. He wants $1500 for both. They are located in Seattle. So tempting, but in all honesty, I'm looking for something for the girlfriend to ride around with me. These probably aren't the bikes for that.
These are really hard to pass up after hearing from you guys how rare they are to find in this condition. Just got off the phone with the guy, and he will only sell them as a pair. While I normally wouldn't hesitate, I have just bought another moped, and spending what he's asking for both would be a bit difficult right now. What to do, what to do...
Thanks for the info! I was amazed when she sent me the pictures at how incredibly clean they were. I'm hoping I can get them to sell just one to me (as that's all I'm really looking for).When you say they are S L OW to accelerate, is it painfully slow? I mean, prohibitively slow where you wouldn't want to ride these around on today's streets?
Hi,I'm know nothing about Honda mopeds, and just got an offer for these. Could anybody tell me what model these are, what type of engine, anything to look out for, drawbacks or issues that prevent performance modifications, etc.? Anything would help. Even just a model name/year would be great so I could do some research.Thanks!Kyle
