History of the Marque: Puch

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 twostroke road bikes of mainly 175 and 250cc, and also a range of scooters and mopeds. Many of these were marketed in the United States by Sears Roebuck as Allstate machines.

Puch engines were fitted to AGS, Dalesman, DMF, Ganna, Meray, Monark, Tomos and other marques.
There is also a listing for an Aspes with a Puch engine, but the owner is unsure if it's original.

Hi everyone.
I found a treasure in my grandma's place, have a look at the pictures !
This is the situation : I don't know many things in mechanic, there is a lot of work on this beautiful bike and pieces are missing... Anyway, I want to fix it, even if I need ten years but I really think it's a really beautiful object. It needs to be alive again.
So I contact you guys if you can help me to know how to start, if you know places to find pieces, documentation, ... Everything can help me, because to be honest, I don't know how to start.
I'm in France, close to the city Nantes. If you can help me for this challenge, could be great !
Thanks a lot, hope to have some comments !

Inherited one of these from father and rode it for a couple of years in the late 60s. Looking to take a trip down memory lane I found your site. F.y.i. ref the photos of the Puch Cheetah DS50 in your gallery - this looks like the model I remember owning and is the 60cc DS60 I believe. Thanks for the pics.

German ,made in 1930-es. do not know
My grandfather had PUCH motorbyke in year 1941..It was made in Germany.Unfortunately,do not know the model.Interested how much the new model of PUCH was worth in those days.And how much the same old model would cost nowadays?

Unfortunatelly do not have any images.
All I know is that grandfather had it in 1930-es. all way to 1941..
When a German officer in occupied city he lived ,not far from Austria,stole it from him.

Kind Regards,

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.
