    Hello

    The Modell Olympian was in the upper mid range of Puch (Austro Daimler) Road Bikes. Originali the Frame and Fork is Reynolds 531 The Brakes and Rims from Weinmann, Shifting Derailleurs from Huret, Color Golden Sand. The price of an new Bike in the 80`s was 800 $. If the Bike is in good shape 130 $ are ok.
    I you want, I can E-mail you the original 82 Brochure Page of this Bike
    Regards from Austria

    Puchultima, do you know anything about puch/ austro-diamler's bike with the finish that is supposed to be impossible to scratch? the bike was bought new in 1984, but I don't know for how much. it was my uncle's. He bought only the frame, and built it with campy parts, all of it is from 1984 and 85.

    It was the Vent Noir. Real nice bikes and built with Campy would help value too.

    There's a thread about such a bike from a few months back.

    Check this: Austro Daimler Vent Noir-information?

    thanks. yeah... vent noir...black wind... too bad I know that it's likely too big for me...I like that it's rare.
    Our family would never sell it, not even for literally a million, simply because it was my uncle's and he loved the bike. and everybody knows this bike is neat...it has an aura...something newer bikes often lack.
    it'd be nice to know how much it's worth, though.

    Hy
    The Frame Set was sold also under the name Ultima SL (SL means Super light) The name of the paint is Smoked Chrome . Here is an Picture of the Frameset. The same color was used for the vent noir. The difference of the frames is that the ultima Frame is an Reynolds 531 SL double butted and the vent noir is an normal Reynolds 531

    I'm just shocked that you would say such a thing!
