    puch bike

    I am not very knowledgable when it comes to specialty bikes.
    Saturday I found a Puch luzern at a garage sale. It is a 12 speed racing
    style bike. 27" rims I think. I really don't know what I have.
    Do you think you could help me?
    Bike is black with gold striping.
    Puch is on angle tube,with small "made in austria" sticker near crank.
    "luzern" is on a small decal on the cross tube.
    It says reynolds 531 on the seat tube.
    It has a small U.S. consumer label at the bottom of the seat tube.
    The company name is Steyr daimler Puch A.G. Austria.
    Shimano E.A.hubs w/shimano close quick releases.
    wheels are weinmann 16x622-700c made in Belgium.
    Handlebars are Sakae custom road champions -taped
    Brakes,brake levers,pedal arms, and derailers are shimano 600's.
    Crank says shimano,and has 52 & 42 teeth aluminum gears.
    pedals have Christophe toe clips with no straps.
    Seat is Arialce jaguar- made in japan.
    22" crank center to top of seat tube.
    21" cross tube
    33.5" angle tube.
    32" ground to top of seat tube.
    The bike is in great condition. It has a few scratches, but looks like it was
    always taken care of. If you know anything about my find, or can tell me
    where to look for info, I would appreciate your help.
    If you want to send me a phone #, I'll call you & talk a little in person.
    Thanks Dan Burns

    Dan,

    If you have not done so already, you might consider posting your question in the Classic and Vintage forum of this same site. They are very helpful with this type of question. I have a Puch as well and I got a lot of info from a Austrian man named Manfred with regard to my bike. Good luck.

    I had a Puch Vent Noir in 1979. They're respectable bikes- very pretty. Mine had a few flaws but it turned heads at the time...
