In 2004 I rescued a trashed and not original Puch Maxi N frame. I straightened the frame and strengthened the back fork by welding metal bars on the inside. The rigid N frame was perfect for my custom chopper project. The XXL front fork I bought in 1990 (after market fork for Peugeot 103 mopeds) and had it made fit a Puch Maxi. I also bought two old Peugeot 103 rims, cleaned them and 'chromed' the spokes. I bought a revised 50 cc kick start engine for it. I didn't have a garage or shed, so I mostly did all the work in the living room and balcony. In 2007 I rode it for the first time. Due to not being ridden enough and lack of maintenance, I had a lot of problems with the engine, costing me too much Euro's. I considered giving the chopper back to nature or set it on fire, but now that it rides again I am proud the Crazy Diamond still shines on.
