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.
Come to the darkside, we have cookies.
"Make sure you got clean underwear," Mom always said. I always figured that'd be the least of my worries, but now I'm older, I see there's a lot you can't control and some you can control and clean underwear is one of those you can...for the most part.

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.
Only an XR1200 owner knows why Cthulhu hangs its head out a car window.
Like I like. Yep.
