My Puch "130"?

Hey, I have had a Puch road bike for around 1 1/2 - 2 years now and have been searching around the internet trying to find information on my certain frame. I believe it is a "130", but not entirely sure because I can't seem to find anything on that type of Puch anywhere. Can anyone help me out with information on this bike?

I don't have any pictures of the frame because it is currently in the shop being converted into a fixed gear (yay ). Are picture necessary for you guys to give me information on it? I will have some up tomorrow if they are because I am getting it back bright and early.

Thanks for any help .

I picked up an Austo-Daimler recently which was made in Austria along with the Puchs.
Mine has 531 tubing and rides great. A fellow in our club has a Puch with Shimano 600 Arabesque components, one of the thier higher end bikes that I lusted for since the first time I saw it.
http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Austria/AD.htm has some info.
http://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Cat...AustroDaimler/ has some A-D cataloques.
I know Puch made motorcycles and I'm pretty sure made some lower end bikes of good quality for Sears.

Hy
take a look to the Austro Daimler Brochure 1986 witch is available on the bulgier. net Hp ,section scanned bike catalogs.
I made this scanns and gave it to him
Starting with the year 1986 Puch (Austro Daimler) switched to Numbers for the models.
Im sure you will find your model and all the infos you want
Regards from Austria (the home of puch)

Thanks for you links and help guys, but unfortunately my bike wasn't included in any of that information .

Hopefully I can get pictures soon.

I am starting to think that the guy who sold the frame to me decided to just stick so Puch decals on some frame heh

I'm getting worried : /

Thanks for the Puch link! I found my old Puch Odyssey in the '82 catalog (mine is an '83). I found the 130 as well in the '86 catalog, it is with the 140 and 120 (I'd love to find one of those for my son). It also appears in the specifications pages.

Some of the Puchs sure were pretty, especially the Mistrals and the Vent Noir. Although mine is one of the lesser models, it is a pretty good looking bike and I am rebuilding it with some aluminum parts. It looks like I'll be able to get the weight down to a svelte 25-26 lbs!

Wait... the 130 was in that link? Man, I am way too quick and unobservant .

*runs to look at link again*

Sorry about that clipped, and yes... many thanks for the links.

Edit: YAY! I looked over it again and saw that it was in the "140" link. GREAT! Thanks so much . Wow... it looks so nice there heh. I see that it is a very low end bike, which I expected heh, but great nonetheless. I also see that every part on my bike is stock, sans the saddle, so that gives me more information also. Awesome, awesome, awesome heh.

Thanks again.
