Hmm id beg to differ, as i created that particular artwork from scratch.. at worst it will be looked upon as a derivative work i just don't want someone taking the work I've done and go off printing it.. not that it be that great, after all it isn't the original vector file :D. its taken hours of work and research to try and track down the required information besides its older than
Yes bob I would be very grateful for a photo of the epa sticker i do have a image but its pretty crap quality and kinda at a funny angle.. even photoshop cant get it straight enough to do it justice. heres a pic of the UK spec files I've got drawn up. I understand the US spec caution and warning labels also had french on them? or is that just a Canadian or European thing? im trying to work ou
Right folks, Im a graphic designer by profession, and what started for me as a personal project, has now sort of snowballed a little, as other owners on other make and model forums/groups have asked me if i could do a set of decals for this or that bike.Currently I'm concentrating on the stuff that there is either little or no availability for, or what is out there is terrible quality. I star
Yeah I have seen them in photos of US bikes. You also got a short rack too that just sat above the taillight. Maybe the short was standard and the fuller rack an optional equipment. Who knows. It's all lost in the mists of time and marketing brochures. That silver one even has the frame/chassis rails I'm also trying to track down.

You are welcome. I would happily have a cover if it had no logo but matched the original pattern. Withe the square inset top panel. I could do the logos myself. I have an upholsterer that does fantastic work but doubt I could get the correct material.
possibly, but it would be a expensive buy if it didn't or it was sorta sunken in like the OEM one. if i can get a plain cover i can recreate the lettering and cut a stencil for it on my partners fancy pants brother scan n cut do-hickey she has. I'm a graphic designer by profession. so handy with that kinda thing.
ebay... but it wasn't cheap, 79 bucks! i could get a seat cover made for that, heres a link (forgive me admin if it isn't allowed)https://www.ebay.com/itm/B960-PUCH-SEAR-MOPED-FREE-SPIRIT-1977-1978-1979-1980-LONG-BENCH-SEAT-COVER-ZCCP/152168131659?hash=item236ded6c4b:g:TlcAAOSwARZXiJhu:rk:1:pf:0
Wanting to buy this kind of free spirit rack has to have excellent chrome and no damage to the reflector mounts. also looking for a source for a seat cover for the same kind of seat.. but with NO free spirit logo. only ones i can find have. My bike isn't a free spirit it just shares common parts. I would also like to buy, or get information on these spine rails. If anyone knows a source, I
I have found magnum X parts. But unsure if they are the same. It's a shame Puch never had part fiches like the Japanese manufacturers do with clear part numbers to cross reference. Both are E50 motors.
It's a Puch AX40 City. It has the same forks as a magnum MK2. Definitely hydraulic.
I do a lot of my own plating, zinc, nickel, nickel-zinc, copper, also dabble in aluminium anodising. and rust removal with electrolysis. only thing i cant do is chrome plate, as we cannot buy a proper chrome kit here, just a crappy replica chrome which is nickel and cobalt if memory serves, its meant to give a slight blue tint as nickel itself is too brown to replicate chrome.To do a decent job th
to be honest the bikes done under 1000 miles from new, it was last on the road in 1983.. i have everything with it, the original sales receipt (£352 on the road 21/08/1981), the original tax disks (im in UK), warranty info, and dealer info, and the original UK log book (same as US title) so id like to think the gearing surely cannot be that worn. Hopefully once i get it delivered on Friday i hope
Going to rebuild the forks of my bike, been told it has the same forks as the Magnum MKII which are hydraulic. When i pulled up the rubber gaiters of the forks to check tube condition. they were ok but did have some orange spots. and i know from bitter experience once fork tubes of hydraulics have any rust, it just kills seals. besides in the UK the fork tubes have to be good to pass our MOT road
Lovely wee bikes, had one at age 16 back in the day. Worth a pretty penny over here in the UK these days. Mines was in the black and red, but look better in green.
Looking to buy kickstart mechanism parts for a puch E50 must be in good condition. Looking for all the gears and clutch basket. also looking for a NOS or very good condition cateye turn signal set for a Puch. And a 15mm bing, not a Chinese clone! or a 17mm one off a magnum. its to go onto a Gilardoni kitted motor once i build it. May also need a speedo drive, but need to figure out which type firs
Well I bought it. And I got it running. I took mag cover off. Things were a little stiff when I tried to turn it over. But definitely not seized or even a mild nip up. More like something was done up too tight in the clutch side. It loosened up after I turned it a couple of times on mag. Kickstart re-engaged. And I got it to start. Only left it running briefly. But still feels stiff on clutch side
Going tomorrow to look at a X40 derived bike, it has the kickstart engine fitted, the guy selling it has said he went out to start it as it hasn't been done in a week or two, he got it started, but it stalled after a short while, It has a new Airsal 70 kit, a bing 15 clone, and a biturbo exhaust. he says it isn't seized, but until i can pull the head and/or try turning the mag side to
I would be interested in one of those if it's NOS and the condition was good.
After watching that video, sure I can see how he has wired it up to a battery, but the flasher can is 12v, the Puch is 6v. I have tried looking for a 6v version of that adjustable relay. one description on aliexpress says 6v 12v, but further in the specs it says 12v only.. it could just be bad pidgin english that you find on places like aliexpress. but id hate to wait 5-6weeks for it to turn up an
Thanks Brent. I shall go try and find this Vid.
True, but id much prefer an all in system, so it isn't dependent on me remembering to charge a battery. I have seen other Puch bikes based on the E50 motor with indicators (turn signals) as standard. Has anyone modified there bikes to add signals? I have tried googling, and the only info i can find is about these cateye setups, and being 25+yrs old now, the batteries and wiring will be prett
If i buy this Puch I'm going to look at (yeah i probably will, or look for a Maxi) the one thing i don't like is the lack of any turn signals. After much reading, and looking at the parts list for the aftermarket catsetye setup. I think i can recreate it using more modern materials and parts.In the parts list it mentions a capacitor, but not the rating I'm assuming its a 6V cap, but
I swear by Avons (Cobras) on my V-Star 1100, and on my Suzuki Intruder 1400, if it can handle the stump pulling torque of those. It can handle a tuned 50 or 70cc moped. As stated by others, not that expensive either if you shop around.
I managed to work out it's a Puch AX40. The wheels are 12". Closest model you got was the X40. But pics I've seen for that show 12" spoked rims. So it seems it's pretty uncommon. The only thing I can't work out yet is if it has the usual E50 motor or the same version as the korado. Any way to identify without pulling it apart?
jeez i was thinking of this kit for a Puch City, id have been over the moon with 45! let alone 60, it apparently has an airsal kit fitted at the minute (not looking at it till Tuesday) but i think ill go get this gilardoni kit, and a better pipe, it has a biturbo type affair on it at the minute, some port matching . i don't expect ludicrous speed for a 74cc bike.. i got far bigger bikes for t
Thats what i wanted to know, oh well i dunno if its much good from the little reading I've done its a bit meh quality wise? so id be better spending some cash on the gilardoni setup whilst its available, and a decent exhaust. I like the challenge in doing a good setup. partly why i like this thing. lots of parts, and lots of info to modify the parts. and it isnt the regular maxi, its differen
it is 70cc. he has all the boxes it came in, and the receipts for it. its not a free spirit, but similar, based on same motor. but various frame parts are different. there was a free spirit close by I went to see, but it was pretty crappy condition wise, but I can see the differences between them. The standard exhaust, barrel and head with carb is coming with it, the carb is a little larger than s
Here is the only photo i have of the kit he fitted and the carb.. any ideas?The bike is a little pricy to me, but they all seem to make good money in the uk he asked £550 (about $700), I've got him down to £425 ($550), but in the flesh ill find some fault and a excuse to offer £400 ($520) and wave the notes under his nose, hell i may offer £375 ($485) as a cheeky bid.. if it turns out to be a
have cut a deal to go buy a 1984 Puch City, if its as described and everything works as it should. it shall be mines! here is the bike..The bike has an aftermarket 70cc kit, and an expansion chamber exhaust fitted as well as a new carb. I've asked him if he can remember which kit he installed, but he cant yet.. but said that the box it came in is at the garage so he will say when he is there
