re·gal (ˈrēɡəl): of, resembling, or fit for a monarch, especially in being magnificent or dignified. Taking a few liberties here I know. This painted sign is a reminder that New Orleans was once the brewing capital of the South. It can be found on the outside of Snake and Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge. The small, late night, neighborhood bar is possibly the best dive bar in New Orleans. But no drinking and riding.
There are thousands of Puch Maxi images online. And I’ve looked a quite a few. One thing that I rarely see is a Puch tank rack. What is most common are the chrome side rails…although many owners choose to remove these. As I understand it, the tank rack was an accessory available on certain Puch moped models. Since it fits on a Maxi, I got one. I’ll admit it’s an unusual look. But frankly, isn’t being unique-looking one of the primary reasons people are attracted to a vintage moped?
Saw this vintage sign at an intersection of roadway along Mississippi River levee. It welcomes folks to Louisiana and suggests to “reconsider” their littering. Guess the assumption is everyone who visits the state throws trash out of their vehicle. Not likely…especially when both hands are holding on the handlebars of a Puch Maxi.
Took a ride today. Took another photo of my ride. You’re welcome.
Probably the smallest accessory I’ve acquired, these Puch valve caps were also the hardest thing to source. Not sure why these are not available from any of the leading moped parts online stores. Seems they would be an easy item to offer. I found these from a place in Slovakia. Thanks to the Internet.
