Need help identifying a Austro - Daimler

Bought this bike for my first attemp at reconditing and old steel bike. Not to worried on value but would like to know the model to get correct components matching year. Would like Shimano 600 threw out since a few things are Shimano 600.

reads "made my puch AUSTRO-DAIMLER"
deep purple color
Down seat tube has missing sticker where 531 would be but not sure it said 531
forks read "2600" something
holes for water bottle
head badge is a metal sticker back.
Shimano 600 headset and cracks set
Front hub Shimano 600 tri color
Weinman break pads
No writing on top stay tips
Gipiemme dropout and fork tips
Serial # 7015527


I thought it was a 1982 Inter10 but the fork is 2600 and not 531.

please help identify model and year. I want to get correct year Shimano hub for rear. Thanks everyone

It looks to be the A-D equivalent of the Puch Mistral SE.

Specs for 1981 below.

Builgier 1982 specs pages show Fast Touring SLE with 2600 fork and 531 triangle. I have a SLE that looks exactly like yours.

Strange. I remember the Clubman and the Bergmeister well. they were very popular where I grew up in Southern California. I had a Bergmeister, but it was a a Puch. The Clubman was a hugely popular alternative to the Schwinn Varsity. It was a Steyr. They're both from the Steyr/Daimler/Puch conglomerate, but the page above has it backwards.

The bike looks a lot like my Austro Daimler Puch Pathfinder A-D, which I bought in the early 80's, though it had set around in the shop a few years because I got a "singles" discount. The frame was made from Puch's own 2600 manganese steel blend (like Reynolds 531 tubing, which also useds manganese), hence the 2600 label on the fork. Much like this one:

Dan B?s Austro Daimler by Puch Pathfinder A-D | Old Ten Speed Gallery

Puch's were know to have very good paint and lug finish, and to use some very classy color choices. Though I never saw a catalog providing an official name for the finish color, I remember the shop specifically referring to the color as "burnt sugar". Like this (see #12 ):

The Lipstick Duchess: Kleancolor Femme Lipstick - LS1274 Review

(note, this is based on my remembrances of the bike.... I know longer own it.)

Thanks uncle. After reading up on the Pathfinder, with stamped drop outs, I don't think matches my bike. My bike has Gipiemme dropouts and Shimano 600 headset that's stock.

My pathfinder a-d definitely had stamped rear dropouts. Don't know the differences between a straight "pathfinder" and the "pathfinder a-d", though I know my "a-d" was made in Austria, whereas some lower end "made for Puch" branded bikes show Japan as the country of origin. Kinda sad to see that the catalog lists the color as simply "burgundy". And I know my a-d was 2600 tubing for the frame.

I have an 81/82 Olympian with the 'fast touring' 531 frame, but different fork in a larger size. With narrow handlebars and tubies, it has been described by a couple of friends as "dialed in" and "super responsive for a big bike". I'm guessing: if it fits you will love it. Go for a light wheelset.

They were low end, but they had great graphics.
