I was lucky enough to score a bee-utiful Eggplant '78 Maxi Luxe for $100 in Fort Worth 3 years ago. Some wanker rattle canned it. I was going to try to get it off of the original paint, and tried polishing compound this morning. It didn't take off the rattle can stuff but it did put a shine on it and I think I'll leave well enough alone for now. Mine is in the pictures section, about 3rd from the top with my gray farm cat Eliot Ness in the picture. What a pretty little bike. I didn't know anything- still don't but if ever there was a case of love at first sight- this was it. Mein kleinas motorrad !! Thanks for the thread about the Eggplant Puchs. And YES !!!! That purple paint job and pedals are gorgeous !!! What a tasteful - nay -
MESMERIZING color you put on it. Mesmerizing I tell you. Don't you need the purple chain I saw someplace ????????
