In late October, I picked up a 1980 Puch Newport, and as my winter project, I'm going to strip it completely down and rebuild it with a mild engine upgrade. I'm sure I will need to rely on some of your expert advice, especially in areas which I am unfamiliar with (such as mechanical ignition and wiring.) Here's how she looked on December 27, 2020, when I started the teardown.
I'm envisioning a 70s-era paintjob (candy apple red or electric blue) and a complete engine rebuild. I've got new seals and bearings on the way, along with an Airsal 72cc top end and DMP aluminum stuffed crank. I'll keep on posting my progress and questions as this proceeds.....
