    I've searched a few forums and either I'm not searching correctly or it hasn't been done. I am thinking about putting a Puch E-50 motor on a bike.
    Is it too crazy? Am I dreaming?
    Parts are everywhere and the Puch E-50 has some power.
    What do you MB experts and builders think about such a crazy idea?:D

    A Puch E-50 has about 2 HP and develops a lot of torque.
    Parts are easy to get, and they (Puch distributors) imported millions into the US in the 70s and 80s :D

    That depends on what part of Ohio you are from.

    I'm tipping my hand about Puch moped engines...never mind.
    Pay no attention that they are reliable after thirty years and were built with materials and methods superior to the chengines more widely available today.
    Ignore that part about Daimler

    I've finally found some stuff about Morini engines being put onto bikes. On "that other site" I'm certain that Puch engines are even easier to find.
    I wasn't trying to be sarcastic,
    I think the idea is fantastic.
    I'm going ahead with my plans
    to Puch up a bike.
    No Chinese craptastic
    Puch quality I like.:D

    Since you asked, Dan, here's a photo of it, in front of my Whizzer engine. It measures just under 9" wide and 14" long. :D

    I like your thinking. That is a great and proven motor. I hope you can get it going so I can copy your ideas. I am still working on my Whizzer.

    You could try getting hold of the sachs motor that they did in the 60's. It was a 2 speed manual transmission - I think a 50cc but not sure.

    A Sachs would be a sweet powerplant also, Jemma, I'm on the semi-alert lookout for those also. I like the old French and Italian 50s also, but I'm more accustomed to Puch and Vespa. Thanks for the tip!
    Here's a crazy bike with a Puch motor...

    Here's a board track style with a moped motor, I'm leaning in this direction for my monster idea.

    Do you have any more images, or a link to some, of that bike you just posted? Definitely curious how the owner set that one up.
