    Took my Austro-Daimler out for a ride

    Yesterday for the first ride of the year. I had forgotten what a great ride that bike is. And it isn't even one of the really good ones. It's funny because they put a PUCH headbadge on it and then put Austro-Daimler on the downtube. All the bikes I've seen have one or the other but not both. I guess it's not good enough to be strictly an A-D but better than a Puch? Anyway, it rode great. 15 miles of pure heaven.

    I just finished cleaning up a D-B that my sister picked up in a yard sale. Once I cleaned through the years of gunk, there was a sweet machine underneath with minimal wear. The handlebar bag had the original 1980 sales receipt for $800 in it.

    It's not much of a picture, but here it is. Rode 15 miles on it again yesterday. Part of the ride was a 2 mile uphill continuous climb. I had to use low gear the for almost the whole 2 miles.

    Thanks guys. Drove up to Dayton to register my soccer team for a tournament and took it for another 20 miles tonight. There was a bike path near the registration hotel so it worked out good. I'm liking this bike more and more!

    puchs were labeled austro-diamler in the U.S., elesewhere everyone called 'em puch. My uncle owned a puch/austro-diamler racing bike. he bought it in 1984. it was the one with the finish that couldn't be scratched, sort of anodized, I guess, in black....the vent noir. Has anybody here seen one and/or know what they're worth?

    Took her out for a 25 mile ride in Columbus this weekend. They have some nice bike paths up there. I did have to coast through some high water. I came up to my bottom bracket. Had a great ride!
