Puch bike

I just purchased Puch bike off of Ebay for only $100.00. Has anyone ever heard of Puch brand bikes? What do you think of them? Here's a pic of the bike (it's steel):

i got one (puch) from a sheriff sale/auction 10 years ago, still needs to be re-prepped for use.
i have put MANY MANY miles with my A/D Austro-Deimlier Inter Ten (speed) 1980 - 1999 but retired it after being hit (bike not destroyed, but time to move on). A/D is a part of Puch, a Austailian company that started by making bombs and guns in the WWII. now chrysler/dodge owns (or is owned) by A/D-Puch....
what is the frame made of, components, rims, over-all condition?
enjoy!

Here's the specs from the seller on his listing:
THIS IS A PUCH BIKE THAT WAS IN STORAGE FOR QUITE A WHILE. I BOUGHT IT AND TOOK IT APART AND INSPECTED EVERYTHING. THE ONLY PROBLEM I FOUND WAS THE LEFT CRANK ARM PEDAL THREADS WERE CROSS THREADED HALFWAY IN. THEN I LUBED AND GREASED EVERYTHING AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER. I PUT BRAND NEW TIRES ON IT AND TOOK IT ON A 4 DAY TOUR OF THE BEACH COAST. HANDLED A 40 lb LOAD OF EQUIPMENT LIKE A CHAMP. CAN'T BEAT LUGGED STEEL FOR COMFORT AND DURABILITY, PLUS THE FRAME TUBES ARE MADE BY A GIANT IN THE INDUSTRY, "TANGE" KNOWN FOR QUALITY. DIA-COMPE BRAKES, SUNTOUR DERAILER AND SHIFTLEVERS AND REAR GEAR, SUGINO- VP CRANK ARMS. COMES WITH THE STOCK SILVER ALUMINUM STEM, THE BLACK ONE IS FOR SALE IN ANOTHER AUCTION. IT HAS A VETTA SEAT. THE TIRES ARE BRAND NEW 27 INCH BONTRAGER SELECTS 1 1/8 INCHES AND RIDE ON ALUMINUM RIMS. STANDOVER HEIGHT IS 32 INCHES. BIKE IS JAPANESE MADE FOR PUCH.
