Summary:

I love it!

Faults:

I have never had more than a dirty float bowl.

General Comments:

This moped was sort of slow when I bought it (stock 20mph). With a major port job, a new pipe, and a large carb, and some lightening on the overall bike and engine, I can hit speeds in the low 60s. Yes, you heard me right over 60mph.

The e50 is a pretty reliable engine. With an 80 cc kit, the speed max speed would be very high.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

60mph from a Puch Maxi. Wow, that speedometer was optimistic!
