Vintage Puch Meteor Mnt Bike

Hi all
I inherited a Puch meteor Mountainbike and I知 wondering how old it is and what is it worth? The tires are dry rotted and need to be replaced. Where is a good source to get a replacement and should I purchase original tires? Everything else on the bike is in mint condition, garage kept and no rust.
thanks for your help!

Good Moring and welcome to the forums. I'm not familiar with that bike but I'm sure someone who knows about will be along shortly, in the mean time can you tell us more about it? are there names on any pf the parts? I think it's a fairly early model maybe '84ish judging from the pic or two I found on the internet.

In general unless they are a topline model or something very unusual older mountain bikes do have a lot of value. If you don't want to ride it and this needs tire I'd recommend just selling it as is so the next owner is free to decide if they want a more road orientated tire or something more aggressive for off road.

Does it look something like this?
