Puch Vent Noir Mixte

Selling this Steyr Daimler Puch Vent Noir. I measure seat tube as 21" center to top. Bike is exceptionally clean and was not ridden much at all (see lettering and decals, saddle, etc. Bike was sitting for a while, so photos pick up a lot of dust that I should have wiped off.) Mostly original except for cockpit and rims (clincher instead of tubular). More pics on my Flickr - https://www.flickr.com/photos/39670213@N06/albums/72177720296575362. Asking $500 without bars/stem/brake levers or $550 with, plus shipping.

way cool. with what appears to be massive tire clearance and the full 531 frame, it's basically a unisex Competition. Imagine putting 650b's on it and turning it into a adventure mixte.

Thanks for the comment. For perspective, the tires on the bike are 700 x 38, so great clearance.

Saw this and thought, “Buy that and put it into storage for when you can no longer ride drop bars or lift your leg over a horizontal top tube.”
I’m only 70, so that time is still well into the future, but still…tempting.

That matte paint is just interesting. Really a cool bike overall.

Good attitude. I’m 57 and think like that every time I see a nice mixte.

Been a week.....still available?

My much heavier ~23" AD Michelle might need a complement since it rarely gets a compliment.

Sorry WW, I already pounced on it like a kid on a cupcake. Going to set it up for my wife so we’ll have his & hers Vent Noirs.
