Not exactly sure why I love my 1978 puch so much. Her pedal fell off first ride on island, her steering column is stripped and doesn't stay lined up with front tire no matter how tight I make it. she can't stop quick enough to save my life and Her chain slips off easily when changing gears to quick Shes also little bow legged but In the end I get to my destination. She might have flaws but don't we all? #myPuchisametaphore 😂 #puch
No more riding for the year, too cold to ride without changing jets. So this fall and winter is time to take on repairs and mods, the front forks on this maxi were a death trap. New forks and a handlebars are in order. Also cleaned and replaced the wheel bearings, axles, cups and ball bearings, cleaned and fresh grease helped get those rims spinning smooth again. Lots of things to do but I’m excited to be able to do them. #maxi#moped#puch#mopedarmy#iowa#midwest .
