Coming along

The assembly is well underway. The back rim is new, new spokes front and back, hubs polished up. It turns out Motorwest has a lot of parts for these bikes, and they are pretty reasonable. I have just...

My Puch project is coming along

I picked this bike up in 2010, and promptly took it apart. That seems to be what I do best. Then I moved 2 times, carting all the boxes of parts along.. I'm finally settled and have my new shop set...

Finished!!

Finally finished her up! The bike was quite a bit of work, and hopefully will be worth it. Parts are hard to come by and sometimes pricey. The exhaust & the seat really cut into the budget bigtime....

Thanks! I'm looking for an early, I think 1972 pipe for my 175. The pipe that came with it had a horrible braze job at the end where the stinger was.

It's the skinny pipe. But I could probably use...

Back in '78 I was able to buy my 1st new bike, a PE 250. Damn, I rode that bike a lot. Rode my 1st 2 enduros on it. I picked up this '82 175 for $400 and went through it, all new bearings, bushings,...
