So this is a build thread for me to keep me occupied. I really should blog this; but i figured more people would enjoy this . . . 1977(?) Puch Maxi Picked up last year in May, no title. Tank was really rough (rusty & old gelly gas inside) with an air leak along with mismatched carb/intake. couple weeks later, added some mods along with a external gas tank. Set up as follows Stock e50 bottom end 70cc Version 2 treats kit Techno boss (fuego jammercool) 14mm intake with a 15mm Bing Carb Stock Clutch Stock Crank Points Hardwired Stock gearing i was hitting around 43 - 44mph (these bikes stock 50cc go from 20 - 30 [depending on the model]) Later on in the year (around early august) i was involved in a accident (shitty Chicago drivers not paying attention) which resulted in my front fork & bars being bent to shit. ON THE DAY OF THE CHICAGO RALLY AT THAT. So i was super duper pissed. now that i look back; i should have gotten money, or some type of compensation from the lady that hit me. So i opted to just change the forks/handle bars, but that never happened. I just moved onto my next project which was my magnum fork swap w/ bars (you can see how bent the bars are) i said fuck it, magnum time magnum I basically threw the engine from the Maxi onto the Magnum (same moped brand Puch (pronounced pook) The frame has been sitting ever since; but with the new season already fuking here, it's time for me to get back into the game. Remember that bad crusty gelly tank i mentioned above earlier? Well i took care of that today, officially. Monday i threw a mix of Salt & distilled white vinegar into the tank. Let it sit for a total of 3 days (today being the 3rd day). Drained the mix Got as much crud out as i could with the hose (started to flash rust) Flushed Threw in a mix of Baking soda + water [mixxed it until the soda wouldn't dillute anymore] Flushed tank with water couple times Flushed tank with gas (to get rid of any water left behind) a couple times Flushed degreasser through the tank(purple power) to get rid of any residue/gas I now have Evaporust sitting in the tank to get ANY left over rust that may be left behind. i'll then be prepping for paint (VERY POSSIBLE, but this may be my rat bike) That's it for now. I'll try to be more pic savy with this & take as much pictures as i can tolerate. Feel free to ask any questions, i'm still a moped nub, but i'll give any info i can.
