Sweet, but those clubmans looks uncomfy.

i actually find clubmans to be quite comfy, but opinions vary for sure. on my V50 guzzi they are awesome, i can rest my elbows on my knees...

but i also have a Paul Smart, so everything is comfy in comparison

Here's a 1966 60cc Allstate (made by PUCH) that I sold a couple of years ago. It was completely original, even with the original Continental tires. The grips and footpegs were not scratched; it had never fallen over...

I bought a Sears 106 at the auvtion at vintage days ,Mid-Ohio, years ago.It was complete put somewhat neglected. I had several people show intrest in it as I pushed it from the aution tent, across the bridge and down into the garages to # 22.
I sort of fell out of love with as I pushed because the rear tire was very low and the front was flat. To anyone that expressed intrest , I offered it up for sale. No takers.
In the pits I blew up the tires and front tube was shot so a quick tour of the swapmeet netted the nessesary tube. I cleaned the carb and flushed the tank and checked for spark.
In short order the tire was fixed ,the bike was running and as a bonus the lights and horn all worked!
The bad news was when I rode it there was a steady knock from the bottom end. And the warmer it got the louder the knock.
The big end bearing in these motors is a bushing and this one was done.When I changed the oil it looked not unlike copper grease. It sits waiting for me to get intrested again.

Puch

I had a Sears 60cc Puch also. Mine was a 62 or 63. It was red. Bought the summer after sophomore year of h.s. with paper route $.
I liked the bike, but hated the transmission (3 speed). Fun offroad.
The Honda sport 50 with a 4spd. became available around the same time and was pretty much bullet proof.
The scene was about to change real fast.

My new purchase



I just brought this home from Tea, South Dakota. It has 962 miles on it and runs and drives. I know this is an old thread, but this bike is special to me because my dad helped my older brother and I buy one brand new. A Sears 106SS was the first bike that I owned or drove........
The one that I owned had a blue tank, and I would love to find the paint code to turn the tank on this one blue. Can anyone help?

Starts first kick, and rides like new. All original, down to the tool kit.

Some may enjoy seeing one of these again !


1965 Sears Gilera 106SS






I bought this ones twin at the J.Wood auction at Vintage Days one year.
I pushed it from the auction tent back to our pit , flat tire on the front and all. I tried to resell it to anyone that showed intrest but, found no takers.
Back in the pits the tools came out and I found it had spark. So, I cleaned the carb and found a tube at the Swap Meet and it ran and the lights worked. I was feeling good until on the test ride , I found out the warmer it got the louder the knock from the lower end became.
This was the base model , built to a price version of a Gilera. No roller bearing in the big end, they put a bronze bush in and called it good.
After another ride I pulled the left side cove off the motor and the oil galley was full of this grey ,oil-metal mixture with bronze bits in it.
I still have the bike. One day I'll either try to find a new big end set or I may put in the N.O.S. Honda 125 ,6 speed single I have.

My first scooter was a 1955 Sears Allstate Cruisaire made by Vespa. I got it in 1958. I was 14 at the time. I wore it out and rebuilt it and rode it some more. I have many fond memories of that first scooter.

I wanted a Cushman Eagle but we couldn't afford one. I really don't know how my dad had the money for the Allstate.

As a kid I remember drooling over motorbikes and go-carts in the Sears & Montgomery Wards Catalogs.

Good to see these things still getting some love. One like this took this 15 y/o all over Florida until I got a CB350 for HS graduation (Thanks Mom and Dad!).

No battery, just a magneto. Horn & Lights? Maybe if you kept the rpm's up. Turn Signals? Left arm, thank you very much.

There's still a soft spot in my heart for them.

That was my first bike when I was a kid, a Sears Cheyenne 60. The pictures bring back a lot of memories. I got to see one up close a couple years ago at Mid Ohio Vintage Days. Thanks for posting pictures.
