This thing sat in a dude’s yard for like... 5 years covered by a tarp. I pulled it out. Threw some parts at it. Got it running. Since then the coil died but everything else(to my knowledge) is good.
New fuel petcock. (And I vinegar soaked the tank for 3 weeks.)
New seat cover.
New body panels.
10 new spokes.
New fuel line.
If it were my project, (It is but I have too many projects right now) I would do the following:
Brakes. Tires. Coil. Good to go.
I love the old newport(with the old badge) but I’ve got bigger fish to fry. My projects are all sitting in the shop right now waiting for papa to sell this Puch and buy them parts.
I ran it and rode it once. 1 month later, I visit the shop I’m storing it at and the coil died. It’s one part from being on the road and otherwise sound.
I’d like $500. I’m in Colorado Springs.
