Nice bike, but not top of the line.

Are you sure. I bought the frame from Columbus Cycle in Columbus Ohio in the early 80's. It originally had Campy components. The frame had a scratch so CC warrantied it for the customer. I bought it with the scratch for a weeks wage. Shimano 600 was the most I could afford. I built the bike from the ground up, including lacing the wheels.

Even if the frame is the same, the bike is not. So your question is it the same frame? But even with the small picture supplied by the OP, looks to my old eyes like the fork is slightly different and the seat stay attachments are different. More detailed photos would be needed to be more definitive.

Thanks for posting the pics. It looks like a nice bike. I am not sure about the model difference, but I noticed that Puch is stamped on your seat stay (AD on mine).
