1979 Puch Challenger advertisement

Posted in 1979,Puch Advertisements by Racer on March 13, 2011

This ad is the earliest Puch advertisement I could find. It is from the December 1979 issue of “Bicycle Motocross Action” magazine. The model is the “new” Challenger MX. It features a Magnesium Alloy (Magalloy) frame. It has alloy hubs, Ashtubula cranks, V bars and a alloy SR stem, 4130 seat post, what looks to be front and rear Shimano or Dia Compe brakes and a Kashimax seat.

The frame is lugged and to me it looks identical to a Scorpion or Cycle Pro. I bet they all came from the same factory and may indeed by the same frame.
