Hey, Moped Friends this is Lou with Moped Rich!
Break The Cycle Moto works has given me the opportunity to bring a Moped of The Day to their awesome website. If you haven't heard of MopedRich.com I invite you to stop by and check it out. The site is dedicated to vintage mopeds. We highlight builds like this on various moped models and more.
This is Nate's (@mopedsrdumb) 1976 Puch Maxi Nostalgic built with the help of Break The Cycle Moto works.
It was originally a single horse-powered Puch E50, they have now upgraded the performance. See below about all the performance parts used.
The Nostalgic was only available in 1976. It is a single-speed Maxi with full suspension. It has black paint with gold pin-striping and different tank decals than other maxi models. Nate has kept the Nostalgic paint in good shape for its age.
In 1977 the Nostalgic was changed to the Newport.
Puch Maxi mopeds are popular for ease of use and maintenance. If you ever have to pedal it as a bicycle I have to admit, it is one of the easier mopeds to use in bike mode than others. It's light and the pedal arms are usually longer than most.
