Tags: Custom, Puch Magnum X
Owner: Adolfo M


It's our pleasure to share with you our very first post of a custom Puch Magnum X moped like you've never seen before. The owner Adolfo M. did a splendid job on this Magnum X. If you're a smoker or not, you'll agree that this is an exceptional job done where creativity adds new life to an old moped.

About this custom Puch Magnum X

This Puch Magnum X a.k.a. Marlboro X belongs to the American owner Adolfo M. (Texas) and runs with a Tomos streetmate disc brake, fork and wheels.

To accommodate the larger rear wheel, the owner had to stretch the swingarm. The tires are 3" knobby tires and is geared for allround riding.

The owner spent about 850 Euros (1000 Dollars) on this project, including the purchase of the Magnum X. Now that's pretty ok, isn't it? This project was finished in a few months during the little spare time the owner had left.

If you are the owner of a Puch Magnum X you might notice that this Magnum X has a special headlight, right? If I'm not wrong, the Puch Magnum X often didn't come with a headlight. However the owner used a smaller led bullet style headlight.

Setup and topspeed of this Magnum X

You might wonder what the setup of this Magnum X is, well the owner has used:

Gila 74cc cylinder kit with modified piston
Stock reeds
VM20 Carburetor
MLM BK100 Pipe
Jammer Clutch
HPI Ignition.

The topspeed is currently not yet measured, but before tuning it already ran 92 km/h (57mph). One thing that scares the owner a lot is the fact that this bike pulls very hard. 

Why a Marlboro themed Puch Moped?

This is the first time that we saw a Puch moped themed to a cigarettes brand. We wanted to know why and so we asked the owner.

The owner explains:
I used to smoke a lot and I’ve been trying to quit recently actually...

However, Marlboro used to make a lot of vintage clothes and memorabilia back in the days. I have a few vintage Marlboro jackets and even some vintage Marlboro leather gloves for riding! I’ve always liked the vintage clothes and stuff they made, so I wanted to build a vintage bike that was Marlboro themed.
