History of the Marque

The Austrian firm of Puch built their first motorcycles in 1903, and by 1912, the year in which company founder Johann Puch retired, the factory was producing over 300 motorcycles and automobiles each year, along with some 16,000 bicycles. Business slowed considerably after the end of WWI, and in 1934 they merged with Steyr and Austro-Daimler to become Steyr-Daimler-Puch.

After WWII they built two-stroke offroad and road bikes of mainly 125, 175 and 250cc, and also a range of scooters and mopeds with smaller engines. Many of these were marketed in the United States by Sears Roebuck as Allstate machines.

Puch engines were fitted to many marques including the following:

      Year of Puch M50 Sport
      Hi.  I have just bought a Puch M50 Sport. Frame number 9845793.  How can I find out the age of this bike.  I have been told it is 1976
      Northern Ireland

      Can you send photographs please, including the manufacturers' ID plate and the engine number?

      Thank you for your reply.  I am in the process if stripping the moped so not much to look at.  I have enclosed a few photos.  I am trying to get a registration book for it and the DVLA wants a letter from an owners club or manufacture to state the age. I am now in my late 50s and had one of these  brand new as a 16 year old

      Hope you can help me

      Identify Puch model and year
      Puch Maxi?
      Good Morning from South Africa. Please help me identify my Puch Model and year if at all possible. Serial number 3523593. Many Thanks
      South Africa

      Ed. Strong similarities to the 1978 model Sport, except for the seat mount. It seems likely that this custom is based on a model similar to, but not the same as, the 1978 Sport.
      Further research leads me to believe it is a Kromag, built using largely Puch components and sold by Sears 1977-78.

      Parts list and engine layout
      Puch Rough rider turbo
      I have got a 50cc ouch rough rider turbo which my mum and dad let me have when I was young. It was sat in a shed for years Previously and I managed to start it. A few weeks later it stalled and I think the engine is flooded and some of the parts are rusting and the kickstart is jammed
      I am currently doing a level 1 imi in ligt vehicle mechanics at the college in kings Lynn Norfolk and my tutor has allowed me to bring the bike in to work on and hopefully fix

      I was hoping to find the engine layout and parts on the Internet but could not find it anywhere and wondered if you could possibly email the list of parts and engine layout so I can rebuild the engine replacing the parts that need to be replaced.
