BUILD DESCRIPTION

This is my 2nd moped ever. I bought a Puch from Phil Patrie a million years ago and ran it mod stock with a pipe for a while, added a kit and blew it up. Got frustrated and stuck it in a corner of the shop to one day "rebuild" it. That day has come. Added a long seat from a Tri-Rad, chopped and lowered by yours truly to become a "Sport LS" clone. Added a 55 watt H3 halogen headlight along with a CDI and a TrailTech "Dial-A-Brightness" voltage regulator means I have incredibly good light for night rides. The plan is to tear it down this winter and powder-coat the frame to the same baby blue and add some glorious 80's Puch decals, clean up the wiring and in general fix a few other things that it needs. Its not done but finally getting it to a riding condition has made me excited about mopeds all over again!

Dan Kitchen: This Maxi is hungry, it eats headlights for lunch and dinner.
