4 stroke Puch

So last week Cookson said I could use his magnum's 4 stroke motor as my E50 just keeps going wrong, been a bit lazy so forgive my late post. I pulled off the E50 and offered up the Honda C70.

So once it was on I need to sort the intake change the carb as it just wouldn't fit.

Also needed to remove some pegs as it was just ridiculous having four pegs one side and 3 on the other.

Need to get a more practical exhaust as Cookson's is M.A.D looking & noisily offensive. But man it's rad! Also going to put some mudguards so the Ste wheel doesn't just fill the air filter with cow pat pie juice! Bit of fabrication and the Tomos spare trims will fit.
Went out for M.A.D run 2 and bb lee my spark plug out from the head. Basically the butcher that Cookson bought it off must have cross threaded the hole. New head needed as it is cheaper than getting a heli-coil fitted!

This it actually feels like its 3 steps forward and only 1 step back.
