    Sears and Roebuck coupled bike

    I have acquired a Sears and Roebuck coupled bike and would like info about it. It is probably 30+ years old, a three speed, diamond frame, upright bar, made in Austria and has a "Bike Along" decal on it. Any info on this bike would be appreciated.

    Coupled bike

    A "coupled" bike is in two parts and held together with couplings. The top tube and down tube are cut.

    If it was made in Austria, then it is most likely a Puch. Although, I believe sears also had some take about bikes built for them by Huffy (which would obviously be made in the U.S.) and I've seen a couple of these, they're held together by a big wing nut, and don't have a conventional toptube/bottom tube frame. I've never seen the Puch version, I didn't even know that Puch made a folding bike.
