Thumb Scooter Rescue

I rescued a 1973 Puch Maxi today from the trash heap. Brought it home, cleaned the carb, new plug, fresh fuel, and it fired right up on the first kick.

There are a couple of broken pieces like the switch gear housing and the tail light assembly, everything works, shouldn't be hard to replace here in Germany.

It used to be a sky blue color, but the previous owner decided it need to be black...from spray cans.

Overall, it's in pretty good shape, and I couldn't find any rust in the obvious spots. I will look at it more closely this weekend when I have some light outside, and will take a couple of pics and post 'em up.

Cool little moped. Amazing how they can sit and then be cranked up and ridden. Damn, if only my higher-priced vehicles were that abuser-friendly.

There's a crazy bunch with the appropriately warped sense of humor that formed Moped Army a while back.

Then there was Moped Hospital Racing, which then branched out into scooters. But Moped Army stayed true to the moped. (insert trumpet fanfare here)

I've never owned a moped but sounds like they could be a helluva lot of fun for under-the-radar transportation.
