1978 Puch Maxi S with Zero Miles Original Unused/Unregistered

Unique “Barn find” 1978 Puch Maxi S, Unused/Unregistered, Absolutely Original with Genuine Zero Miles.

It starts and runs well but has never been ridden. This is your opportunity to own a unique survivor from the 1970s!

The tyres have no wear and hold air but of course are 46 years old, so will need to be renewed if you want to use it on the road. It has the original 1978 automatic gear oil, which should be changed for fresh oil before riding.

Just register it with DVLA (dating certificate included in sale) and you’ll be the first registered keeper of a 46 year old Puch Maxi S Moped. Then fit new tyres, add fresh gear oil and away you go (Historic vehicle so Tax, MOT and ULEZ exempt).

Once polished up with new tyres and fresh oil, it’ll be one of the best useable original examples of the popular Puch Maxi Moped. Where are you going to find another one like this 46 year old time-warp moped, which has never been ridden? It even has the original unused toolkit, tyre pump and document pack.

The good bits:

Absolutely ORIGINAL 1978 Puch Maxi S

UNUSED and UNREGISTERED for the road

ZERO miles on the odometer

Dating certificate from EACC confirming it’s a GENUINE 1978 UK Moped – this is required to register it with DVLA and get an age related registration number

It’s in excellent RUNNING order (see video)

Lights/horn/decompressor button all work

Tax (Historic), MOT and ULEZ exempt

As new original tool kit and pump (see photos)

Original Qty 4 (four) steering lock keys included

Original User Manual plus service book, technical spec, etc. included

Fuel filler cap has original 2-stroke mixture measuring cup attached

New fuel tap, fuel line and throttle cable fitted (originals damaged during it’s years of storage but included with sale)

Not so good bits:

As you would expect of a 46 year old Puch Moped in genuine original condition, there is some patination (surface rust) on areas of the frame, chrome and wheels (see photos) but this is in line with a Moped of its vintage!

There is a small (5 pence size) tear on the seat (see photos)

The tyres are original and unused but 46 years old. They hold air but will need to be replaced if you plan to use it on the road

The gear oil is original from 1978, so should be changed with fresh oil before you ride it

Please check photos for details of cosmetic condition, there are signs of age and patination but overall condition is in line with an original finish vehicle of this age. Ask for more detail/photos if you are unsure.

The sale includes a dating certificate from the East Anglian Cyclemotor Club (EACC), which will allow you to register this moped with the DVLA and become the first registered keeper. EACC has a great website which explains the procedure.
