At one point in time, earlier in this thread, prior to the latest acquisition, HelloPitty once said:
"That one might be the last bike purchase, just don't quote me on that.  :) 8)"

I am quoting you on that!   ;)

I knew I'd get some hassle for that!  :D  :P
But technically, I didn't "purchase" this one, my dad gave it to me.  So maybe I'm still in the clear.  8)

Damn, that looks like fun.  Can't wait till you try to ride that through the sand and see how it compares with the great Symba!  Congratulations on your latest addition to the family.

Thank you Tommie, I'm fixing it up so my dad can ride it again.  Seems a bit big for what I like to ride.

I always loved how the exhaust swept up against the side of the CL bikes. Gave it a look that was a cross between the CT90/110 and the typical CB-ish series Honda street bikes of the period. Very nice.

***Update, I did find a PUCH!  It's not purple, like the one I had as a kid, but it's mine.

***Symba update.  I've put 300 miles on her since purchase and I'm still in the honeymoon stage.
She doesn't disappoint; made it up every grade and traversed through every dirt/muddy road to which I've subjected her.

Nice! A real moped! Ain't nothing like having to pedal when you hit the hills. Who knew you could exercise while riding on a motorized vehicle?!

How's it run? Are you enjoying reminiscing about your former Puch by riding this around? I have never ridden a Puch moped before, which is weird since they are so common and I've rode a least a dozen different mopeds in my years.

Runs great and yes, I think I'm 15 years old again, what a feeling!  :D
