Dump the moped and drive your Miata!

Default Puch vs Miata

Hi Leon,

I'm surprised anyone even noticed my reference to the Puch.
Sorry but it is not a Moped. It is an original 1967
Sears/Allstate/Puch 250 cc Twingle (twin cylinders with
one compression chamber). It was a true barn find
with no miles on it. Never assembled from the crate.
Original owner bought two bikes and assembled one and
then proceeded to wreck it and himself. He never
got to assemble the second bike. They were imported
from Austria in the '60s by Sears. When I
found it I cleaned it and lubricated everything and
it started on the third kick. Have only logged 350 original
miles on it so far still in the breakin mode.
Don't ride it much. Spend most time driving
my 3rd Miata a 2002 Vivid. Just finished weekend driving Deal's Gap.

Oh, my. Every 11-year-old boy with a Sears catalog fantasized over those
bikes. Nice find, Denny.

The wonks on Antiques Rodshow would doubtless tell you it was worth more
unassembled in the crate. What do soulless Philistines know?

Hi Lanny,

Well I was 25 when I bought my first '67 PUCH
from the Sears catalog store in Peru, Indiana
while stationed at Bunker Hill AFB (later Grissom AFB)
and flying the B-58 Hustler. Couldn't leave it in the
crate. That's no fun. Got to ride or drive your wheels
and enjoy life.

Denny
