There's always one or two at shows that have sweet modifications. Searching puch on CL came up with exactly nothing, precisely why I wouldn't want to get into them. If you're up for it though, whatevs.
    My thoughts were to buy a puch frame and put a honda drivetrain in it, so its honda reliable but puch name

      That sounds like a project to last you the ages. Tons of people sub in Lifan engines into CTs, the only downside is that they lose out on the trick transmissions and they get clutches. You can take a CT90 up to 200cc and 12v for a few hundie.

        This.

        The reason why iX's shouldn't be dollied is because in theory, if the rear wheels are in motion while the fronts aren't, the transfer case can be damaged.
        If you remove/disconnect the link between the rear diff and the front AWD components, you won't run the risk of damaging anything.

        Only difference between an iX rear LSD and a standard LSD is that the iX is viscous type compared to the clutch pack types. You won't ruin the diff if you tow it this way.

        I'm kinda disappointed in the people that said you can't do it.:???:

          Do what you want. I'm just saying most people wouldn't do it that way. Good luck!

              You can use it as much as you want so long as you help me fieldstrip/sand it down. Also, get a license! You can pass the test easy-peasy on a ct90!

                      Black and gold Puch would be ill. The rarity factor is part of the appeal to me.



                      I don't like the knobby's on the T90's!

                        This is what I got for now. Rode it into work today. What a blast. Fun for car shows and putting around the track.

                              Meh, I much prefer the Sonett III with the fatty bumper. A really nice-looking one just went up for sale in Ft. Colins but I don't have the paper for it, unfortunately :-/

                                Its a good thing I don't have an Income yet, or I'd have way too many toys....

                                I like the Sonett III but I would drop the bumpers actually. But the Sonett II is my favorite for its quirkiness but nice smooth profile.
