Mopeds:

  • 1978 Puch Maxi
  • 1978 Puch Magnum XK

I thought I was the biggest or at least the oldest kid around till I logged in here :p

Been seriously addicted to two wheelers since, well since small kid time and this is nice way to look back, owning and working on these mopeds. Why more people don't consider them for their utility I don't know why not. IMO it's a more realistic mode of alternate transportation for most than say the new Segway. At least is less of a drop if you do fall off (pun for President Bush, the first person to dump on the supposedly undumpable contraption).

Well, so far enjoying myself tremendously learning about the mechanics behind the peds and soon undertaking major restoration job on the maxi. I hope to teach my nephew about bikes along the way, as well other skills and traits which will serve him throughout life. He's such a good kid already.

Life on the streets & roads can be no joke though so I'll close my intro with a wish for many many safe, fun and happy miles to all the Moped Army.

Swarm and Destroy :p

Ride and enjoy.
