Puch BMX

1979 Frank Orlandini

Posted in 1979 by Racer on March 13, 2011

Frank was a Redline (Eds Bike Shop) rider late in 1978, but must have moved on to Puch for early 1979. This picture was taken Opening Day at Craigmeur Raceway in New Jersey.  The race must have been like a national as it had over 500 racers! It shows Frank in first on the inside sporting his new #1 plate.  Brad See (18G) is the Powerlite rider on the outside. Im not sure who the other Puch rider is in the background. But riding Puch colors and running the 28G plate means he musta been pretty fast also. I will try to find out, if anyone else knows or has any Puch pictures or info please contribute.

*28G is Jim Mooney – 4G is Mike Chasmar in the other Powerlite uniform

The caption also read, that Puch was rumored to be coming out with a new high class BMX bike. It must have been referring to the Puch Challenger MX.
