No, it aint a moped... the scooter guys will tell you that, too.
Yeah, is this the same 'puch' that was cursing and swearing about them in repair, you dont know what your talking about... most people have to tune and tune and work and tune more to get 50mph out of a moped.Bobby - You can get tires rated for higher speed and I would _highly_ recommend them if your doing 45!
Wow... he is just _screaming_ on that bike... nice mods.
Even though I posted about this site, I would just like to say that any part that you can get in the USA, please buy here!Not only will the shipping be a LOT cheaper, lots of these moped places are struggling as it is, and if they disappear we are collectively screwed as a community :)These places have lots of cool stuff not available in the states, but BUY AMERICAN whenever possible :)-Rand
I think that it is in Dutch.
Yeah, of course they are custom... but how do you make them and where do you get the materials and the jacket?
Well, if you can, measure your wrist pin, because that would be very important in deciding if the kit will work or not...
From what I can tell, by searching google, the A5 engine appears to be different from the A-35 and A-3N.If the kit will work or not, I cannot say for sure, but I dont _think_ so. Did you email mopedwarehouse or call any of the shop gurus like Ike?-rand
Heh, its a whole new motorcycle you mean, cause thats more like what it is now! :)What speeds are you hitting? You might want to invest in higher-rated tires.
Does anyone know anything about this exhaust? I really like the look of it...Part number 10952 on www.50cc.nl
I dunno about taking a dremel to my engine parts... but it was an interesting read nonetheless.
Paul, that is exactly what I was thinking, is that the final drive should be the same as the single drive on a 1 speed, thusly same top end.Well, very close to the same, the 2 speed bike of course is 5 or 10 pounds heavier, but that doesnt equal 10mph.Anyway, yeah, gearing and power wise with the same kits a 1 speed and 2 speed should be giving the same horsepower to the rear wheel.
Top end perhaps, but he will annihilate you off the mark :P
I have a two speed puch newport but I have never ridden a 1 speed ped.I really love the shifting in it, I think it gives it some character.Differences, as far as I know... the 2 speed will give you more bottom end, better acelleration because the gearing is different at the low gear. The top end should be the same as a 1 speed, but I am not sure.My 2hp 2spd goes about 35 on flat ground, I am runni
Well, if its 50cc.nl, they may have parts that really are biturbo but are different colors, I saw a couple of them on there. I am finding out that lots of these foreign places have tons of parts that we just dont have access to here in the states.Anyway, sometimes when my ped is cold and just started (usually from a push start, pop the clutch), it will SNAP SNAP POP out of the airbox? for like 2 s
http://www.puchshop.nl/Its a shame they are not in english, because if you look through the catalog they have stuff that you have never even seen before for the puch maxis... like tomos style front spoilers, the low boy exhaust, tons of stuff we have never seen in the english arena.I am trying to contact them via email, I want a TON of stuff from then :D-rand
(1980 Puch Newport 2/MAXI)Will it support the weight of a rider?I am looking for a solution to move my seat backwards... I have thought about bending a steel tube into a Z or h shape, but I am thinking about other options as well. If anyone has done seat-position or other custom seat modifications please post with what you did and how.Thanks!
Er, I meant search google... heres a pic,!http://www.puch.ch/gallery/gehrig5.jpg!
Does anyone know anything about this exhaust? It is made for the puch maxi, I am wondering if all (most) of the exhaust's made to fit a maxi engine will fit the kits that go with a maxi...Its a pretty sweet looking exhaust, search ebay for "proma low boy twin" and you will see what I am talking about.Thanks,-Rand
I want to put some longer handlebars on my 80' puch newport 2. There seem to be no shortage of styles available, but I am concerned about the brake cables being long enough.I have seen peds with much longer handlebars, and I am wondering what solution was used for the brake cables.Thanks!-Rand
I think Ike is getting those polini kits in soon...www.ikesbikes.com
I think that the reed vavle allows fuel to flow into the cylinder depending on the compression/suction of the cylinder? I am not sure, I could be entirely wrong, but when I checked out how 2 cycle engines with reed vavles work, that is what I remember... Not sure what the advantage is specifically though.
That popping sound could be you running rich or lean... it could also be bad timing. Did you upjet the carb after you installed the exhaust? As far as I know you have to do that on any moped with a performance exhaust.
If it looks like a biturbo, but does not say biturbo, then they "ripped you off", because what you got is a proma country exhaust. They sell them at mopedwarehouse, and tell you what they really are.Supposedly they are exactly the same, but I would be super pissed if I paid for a biturbo and got a knock off.-rand
I am not sure what kind of engine is on that Cimatti, if it is something widely used or specific to that bike, but heres some links to performance parts sites:www.mopedwarehouse.comwww.50cc.nl
If you want to sell a set of those snowflake mags I want a set for my 1980 puch newport 2... if they will fit... email me! :)
Anyone know where I can get _longer_ handlebars for a maxi?
I would probably go with the two speed? I really like my two speed, stock ive got it doing like 33 or 35 right now. To the best of my knowledge, a two speed should be much faster than a one speed, kitted and tuned.

I was thinking about the fender, customizing it by bolting some sheet metal to it, but my major concern would be the rattling and shaking involved with that.On the back end there are plenty of places to tie and bolt to, but in that front region not so much.But... grab that picture, and draw something on there, I would really like to see your ideas for the front end!
