Puch Clubman - shall I send it to recycle or restore ?

Well here i am again with a low profile bike, this time i have the 79 Puch Clubman.

There are 3 problems with this bike, first has all orijinal parts on it, second not sure if these all parts can be restored, third 40 USD takes all - What do you think ?

Puchs do not get much lower than this.

Five-piece steel solid axle hubs.

Steel rims.

Fixed outer chainwheel.

Unrebuildable pedals.

ESGE plate style bridges.

If you wished to retain it for use by yourself or family member as a utility it might be worth working on.

Even counting your labour at zero you could not get your money back after bringing it up to full roadworthiness.

I would say it's recycle material low low end bike and looks like pretty much every component on it is questionable or bad. Even if it was a high Puch it wouldn't be worth restoring in this condition.

Project time?

A Steyr Clubman made its way into my cargo bike build.



Although, I must admit that I do have some issues with flex.

Don't build your bike for the resale value. But, you could build that bike into a good inclement weather bike. Commuter?
