WANTED:   INFO about PUCH bicycle posted by: Naomi Foshe on 10/9/2002 at 9:00:56 PM
I have an old PUCH bicycle. It says made by Daimler-Benz on it. Is there anyone out there who can tell me more about this bike? Thank you in advance for your time.

   RE:WANTED:   INFO about PUCH bicycle posted by JimW. on 10/12/2002 at 12:05:55 AM
Puch is an old German marque. I believe the full company name is Steyr, Daimler, Puch. In the '50s and '60s their bikes and mopeds were sold by Sears, in this country, under Sears' house brand names. Yours probably was not a Sears import, so it is of more interest to collectors of that sort of bike. We could probably tell you more about it if you supplied a description. Tire size, frame style, and gear shift scheme being of most use in identifying it.

MISC:   Belt Driven Schwinn Cruiser 'New' posted by: Peter on 10/9/2002 at 2:10:42 PM
Hello All,
I need some help.
It seems I've come across a rather new Schwinn Cruiser which is belt driven rather than chain.
This is by association however, I do have pics readily available. I would like to know if this bike is truly rare as I am being informed. And if anyone would know the possible value and history on this bike that would be great. Actually anything on this bike would be great......
I am getting mixed info, and I really don't know what to tell the my friend who happens to own this bike.
Anything would help guys...........
Thanks for reading.
Peter C.

Hi folks, been awhile since I've posted, having some modem probs. Could prob. do a search on this, but maybe next week before I re-install. (lightening hit my system, and lucky to even get online right now.) Anyway, last year in spring clean-up days, found the "white" John Deere 3 speed 'Mixte' (thanks to person in this group that clued me in on that!) But it was missing head cap? (Is that what you call it?) (That label thing on front.) Anyway here in Geneseo (Illinois) is now having "Fall clean-up days" Today I lifted up an old mattress (well, not that old...) and underneath it was a bicycle! I really couldn't believe my eyes.Says "MX" on back of seat, there is decal of tiger of the front label, but I can make out words: "Montgomery Wards" Looks kind of like a stingray, (must be from the sixties?) has coil spring around frame. Wierd seat and wierd looking all the way around. (maybe composition fenders?) Has decal "if you value your life, don't mess with my bike." Bike is complete, but old, and in need of restoration. What is it? And yes I would like to sale it.
Appreciate any information and will be checking this message board if puter don't give up altogether. At 14000 bps.

MISC:   road puppy folding bike posted by: karl on 10/6/2002 at 12:45:03 AM
found today a "road puppy " folding bike. it is quite old...i was guessing 1930-1940's. 16"wheels, horizontal rear dropouts, crazy lever action to undo the bike to be folded. neat old leather seat tagged on back as "special" and the sides stamped "puppy" the hubs are marked as puppy too. anyone have any idea what this thing might be. i bought it mainly for the mechanical oddity of the folding mechanism. thanx--karl
