    I was walking down the street a few days ago when I saw this fine example of Austrian craftsmanship. I had never heard of a Puch before, but it made me laugh so I took some pictures. Does anybody have a guess at a year for this bike?

    Puch made more than just mopeds, they also make some killer trucks and offroaders. The Pingauzer comes to mind. Probably the only true rival to the Mercedes UNIMOG.

    Puch made motocross bikes also. They were in the mid-70's I believe. As I recall they were unique in that one model, a 250 IIRC had two carbs.

    Cool!

    I *think* have a Puch 10-speed somewhere I think.....if I still have it, it's been in storage for many years. I need to drag it out and clean it up.
