This is my first moped. 1977 Puch Maxi S 1.5hp. I got it in 1978-79 with the help of my Gramp. I don't remember my first ride but I remember my Gramp riding it and smiling his ass off. He would have been 70 at the time. They were the rage where I live in the late 70s and 80s. I think it was like $275. I resurrected it after it had been mothballed for 35 years after a good friend crashed it into a chain going across the driveway to the parking lot of our rival high school in 1985 or 86. Broke the throttle control, speedometer cable, headlight, tailight, throttle cable., bent a rim, and busted a spoke. When it started up for the first time again after spending a month cleaning the tank and putting it back together it was the highlight of my summer. I've had such a blast getting back on this thing and my kids have too. I've put about $500 into it to get it where it is now. Worth every penny. 9,000 miles later the bottom end needs to be rebuilt and I'd like to get new forks, but it rips way harder now than it did in high school. Got tons and tons of excellent help on this forum and New England Mopeds and Lovers of Puch Mopeds on FB. (edited)
