Cecked out ebay and there are dozens of fenders for more mopeds than you can imagine. So...does anyone know which bikes fenders will fit best on a Magnum? Something must do the job too, I would imagine.Ideas? Those Magnum fenders don't come up often.
Well..just took a glance at site and learned something. I just figured the dots on the rims were merely decorative. Seemingly not.That roffman is a fount of esoterica.And I fully mean that in a good way.So...I found a set of Puch rims discarded on the street with essentially BRAND new tires, side nubs still evident, with a 2.75 on the front and a 3.00 on the rear, incomplete brake plates. No pro
My opinion: Anything is salvageable if you wish to spend the time and money. With specific regard to a Magnum seat, I would likely take anything I could get at a decent price, but I personally wouldn't pay $200 or more. Even if it was rusted through in some areas, I would still be inclined to try.If you have a friend/acquaintance with an existing seat pan, you could make a mold from it and
So here's the question: Disregarding LOOKS, which Puch rims do you think best? We've got 4 originals: Two chrome rims, humped and not; 5 star and the late 1970s mag rims. I know variables; weight, brake shoes price differential, replaceable hubs etc. etc.Looking at durability. Any opinions? Just because it was manufactured in 1977 and barely used, doesn't mean it's bette
Wow..$12 is a steal.Just asked about spray cans of a specific color here and the NAPA guys said $25 per spray can. Since everything in Honolulu is more expensive, I am shocked that it would cost anyone else $30 a can.
Queries answered. Thank you.Time is NOT of essence here. I just preferred knowing BEFOREHAND if it was even worth pursuing; ultimately, there is little sense beginning a restoration (even if I have virtually all the parts) if the sucker can't be registered/licensed. Great as an exercise in knowledge and discipline for the experience...but I've already had that "experience" be
Thanks for all the input. Another question for those who have done this: According to what I read, I need a photo of the serial number of the bike? This is on the Magnum's front frame below headlight, imprinted vertically but there is usually a metal plate there also, fastened with two small rivets. Not on mine. I can read the complete frame number, but do I need to have a replacement pl
Hmmm...well, if no one here recalls, I live in Honolulu, so I'll likely need to contact DMV to find out if serial number is still registered. I believe (though not SURE) that they purge old numbers eventually. But not really sure of that. More research. If anyone else knows how this city handles things of this sort, please inform. I know things were much simpler when you could find a fra
This frame (as yet incomplete) is from what I suspect is a circa 1978 Puch Magnum, judging from the serial number which starts with 320...I found this frame abandoned 8 blocks from my home more than 15 years ago and it's been sitting around for at least two other restorations between. Thought I'd see how much of an issue it would be. Our new law for abandoned property makes it much mo
Read all I could regarding this topic, but perhaps someone else has something new to add to the prospect of a mail in registration via this state? Any additional info would be useful to many. Thanks.
Ah..okay Ken, got it. Just a regular Leleu spring, nipped and tucked to form. Think I might have one of those outside.Baron: " ...sitting on my floor." But do you know where? Let me know, if you don't need to tear the place apart to locate. I don't need it yesterday...or next week.Thanks to each of you, regardless.
Again, thanks to the ever present and full of info Ken Roff.So...risking stupidity (mine): What is a "regular rim spring"? Never heard term before.
Mostly what I need. Could use a brake swingarm the spring snugs against too, but mostly I need the spring.
Jayson...ummm could you be slightly more specific, please?
A special thanks to Ken...his was the reference to the "non-Austrian manufactured" Magnum frames beginning with the serial number 320...Stumbled across that after posing my query in something seemingly little related.Never mind. He answered the question, both times.Now...with regard to his statements regarding the crank...I'm guessing that you can use a standard Magnum pedal crank.
Don't have a phone or camera....but I do have a clue about it. I came across a reference from an ever-present MA contributor discussing the Magnum XK that apparently was manufactured outside of Austria and had a 320...serial number. Looking for confirmation from anyone who can check their's to substantiate.But, it's definitely a Puch.
I use a dowel, as close as possible to the diameter of piston. Did I use a closet pole hanger before? Wood? Or a 1 1/2" dowel? Don't recall. But you get the idea. Saturate the jug in an upright position with PB blaster or penetrating oil for a couple (or more) days, and be gentle. Timely. This isn't the NFL. Once it initially moves, it will continue to do so.
Got a frame. Looks to be a Magnum. But...some of the frame pipe is larger diameter than expected. Certain details not consistent: Engine bolt-on web design inconsistent and there is no frame part on right side of down tube from neck to guide cable. Those are the major ones. Seat supports look different too.What clinches it is serial number: begins with 320...not 160... as all other ones I h
Yes, I found that Euro wiring diagram, but it doesn't match my stator. This is an old one with the internal, black coil, not the two copper-wired exposed like all the ones familiar to us. The coil wire comes out of the rubber wire plug and runs to the spark.Ken's idea was the simplest, but then I remembered reading somewhere here that not ALL magnetos could be paired with ALL stators.
That does seem a whole lot simpler. But...does that imply that it is impossible to use this magneto/stator assembly in any 5 or 6 wire Puch? Seems a shame, if so.
So I have a E50 from Europe with the famous yellow wire from the magneto. Also a black wire. That's it. But the other side of the connection has a yellow, black and grey. The gray on the Magneto side is detached, period. Looks cut. I checked here for a wiring diagram, but didn't locate it. Can anyone 1) direct me to a wiring schematic anywhere and 2) explain where that gray wire
Brake plate cam mechanisms and springs for Puch snowflake rims, front and rear. Brake arms for both also, plus drive sprocket. Understand they only came in 40 and 45 teeth for Puchs, but if there is a 42 it would be even better. but I'd consider the others with bolts and nuts and lock plates.You probably know what I mean.
Might have one. Send me an email and I'll go check. I know my brother had a 2 spd stored at dad's house, but I can't tell you what was still on it. I'll go look if you're still interested.
Means you have all that I needed. Got a rear rim with NOTHING on it in storage. Won't win any beauty awards, old black paint and I began sanding for paint but never completed. Somewhere in storage, so email me if interested before I go hunting.Also do not have cell phone, so can't get photos readily.
Only interested in speedo, maybe.How many miles on it? I need a used one to replace my Magnum one. Don't care anything but that it works and is as close to 17,235 miles as my broken one. Want to be true to the mileage, try to roll it to that number. A lot more work to do it the farther the mileage is from mine.A.J.
Have a bunch of shims, upper and lower, new and old, from multiple sources (including new .02-.05 (?) from Puch Euro dealers). Measure each one with digital calipers before installation so I know what"s measurement.Read the manual (not very good from Puch), but quite detailed from Murray (on mopedriders.com. I have read this sucker dozens of times.
Glad I came across this from Bobby Selby. My 6 wire magneto ends in 043, but the older 5 wire one ends in 042. From a manual I have: '74-75 magnetos were 038; '75- early '77, 042; after that, one speeds 043, two speeds 044. I don't see any other magneto numbers besides these, and these correspond to the 4, 5 or 6 wire stators. In other words, nothing with a 60 anywhere. I
Never had this before. New crank, bearings etc. Went to install 1984 Puch clutch leftover. If I put the thinnest inner clutch shim (24/17/1.1mm),IT'S STILL TOO MUCH, and I can't get ANY upper shim in place, and, in fact, can JUST squeeze in circlip over bell inside. I don't think the clutch bell should be right up on the inner circlip? Is it possible that NO shims are needed, upp
