Frame reinforcements

Hi,

A question to those of you with 70 cc or more on your Magnum/free spirit/pinto

Have you made any reinforcements to the frame or engine mount? Or other parts of the moped?

Regards

Peter

Re: Frame reinforcements

is that a murray frame?

those engine mounts look different than the two freespirit/magnum style ones.

as long as you don't have the swiss-cheese magnum engine mount, they are usually pretty solid. i've only seen the ones that have a buncha holes in them break.

Close enough, it's a Puch x40 frame, I am putting on a top tank, going for the "magnum" look..

Putting on a 72cc airsal and just wanted to know if I should reinforce the frame somehow

You can box them in.

But make sure everything is dead to nuts first or you're forever gonna run crooked

Re: Frame reinforcements

The frame will be ok it's the swing arm that I have found to be the weak link as they like to twist under load. Look at the MLM puch MAXI super reinforced BLACK swing arm.
