Lookin for a good puch 5-star rear hub if anyone has one.Thanks
So.... this is what we ended up doing...Just wanted to report back with an update.We ended up using these puch shoes with modification listed below.https://www.treatland.tv/productdetails_popup.asp?productcode=groovy-pads-13957-80x18-yWe ground about 1/16" off of the top of the pin end with a cutting wheel - and about 0.5mm from the end that goes against the pin.We used the springs that came
ohhhhhh. I like this idea.. thanks.. the springs an everything are still good on them! thanks :)
Yes.. changed it to one with the roller bearings from treats.. I had to.. the other one was broke.. the connecting rod looks llike a "S"
I blew up my kstar kit (that came on the bike when I bought it) when I hit around 416 this summer.. but I also had a massive air leak unbeknownst to me at the time... hence the total rebuild.. so I am a little skittish about temps at this point.
We just redid my '77 with very a very similar setup.70cc Treats party with the "custom cut sport/touring" head. 15mm bing (with MLM intake and air filter).techno circuit (not proma circuit) pipe - so close.Our timing is at around 14.5-15ish. 14-45 gears (stock). We get 38 mph out of it on the flat, max.. We have an 85 jet in it... it does 4-stroke a little at the top end- I have
We could make them work if we ground the end on the one side. It wouldnt be just a drop in.
That looks right and I remeasured. yes 80x20....that is where I should order it from? no one domestically sells them I assume?I see treats sells 80x20 but who knows if they will fit? doesnt mention motobecanes, says suzukis.
Motobecane.. I am guessing original since the bike had everything original when I bought it (odometer reads 324 miles)looks like 65x20?I attached comparison of the old ones and the 18x80 (puch) shoes we have on hand... I dont mind ordering the exact ones.. just cant figure out what to order.. and hoping to have the bike ready for next weekend.thanks
I have an old 50v witb 6 star mag wheels. the rear brake pads fell apart.I cant find on treats what to buy..everything they have says it is for spoke wheels.I have 18x80 new pads on hand (I have a maxi also).can I buy the appropriate pads.. or we see that we may be able to possibly modify the 18x80s to work.. is this what some people do and is it successfull? any writeups?thanks so much for the
I have a biturbo pipe from a e50 (maxi) - was only used maybe 100 miles.$25Chrome techno boss for flat port puch - still new in bag - $35
yea... uh... what had happened was...This is on a '77 newport that I had bought a few years ago that the p.o. had put a k-star kit on. When I got it, it was really low miles. I had upgraded to a 15mm real bing and mlm intake fancy mlm air filter.. had made a little window in the side covers for the air filter. I also put a circuit pipe on it since we have hills here in Pittsburgh.It was r
we have it apart.. thought I would post a better pic of the crank...
thanks for the insights!yea it was a pretty gnarly scene when we took it apart.. little pieces everywhere. We are still newish to mopeds... so learning the hard way while we go I suppose.
My E50 on my newport blew up on the LGN rally... I have a new cylinder, head, piston, crank for it... but I am a little concerned if the bottom end is still useable... the conecting rod clanged into it obviously.... can we smooth it up and use it.. or is it toast?im specifically referring to the gouge on upper sidethanks
ahhh... it's okay, I will just get something when the time comes... got a lot to fix first.
Monti... I might be interested in it... we have a Sachs Balboa also that I bought a kit for last week (under Franks advise). Not that I will be getting to it anytime soon, after the snap crackle pop on my Newport, but would be good to have for when we get 'round to it. I can paypal ya some dinero and we can meet up sometime at some point.

I commend your sense of adventure, and I totally think you should do the trip... but I am hoping that your mom may be able to give you and your bikess a ride for sketchy sections....That area through WV - basically Clarksburg and east has some really really steep and winding hills with logging and fracking trucks running up and down them....Here is an example of one 9% grade hill, and there are se

yep. that is why they are there... and there are 2 on the other end also.
here is an other picture I took.. it shows the center support.. which I think was a good idea.Oh and it is also a nice height to sit and drink beer on!
Lol... that is my husband, I built that stand with my dad.I have to give props to the Zeros - who had posted some live update videos of their shop in preparation for their rally a few weeks ago (which I wasn't able to attend)... anyhoo - I saw them working on something like this in one of their videos, so I talked to my 73 year old Dad, who likes building shit like this for us - and we did th
