Puch BMX


Puch Trak Pro

Posted in Puch Models by Racer on March 13, 2011

This was without a doubt Puch’s most popular BMX model. For good reason. The Trak Pro was made in New Jersey by Speed Unlimited. They were best known for their own brand “Thruster”.

Here is a closeup of the front gusset. It had the Puch logo sweetly engraved. This is from former Shimano riders , Dave Dechert’s collection.
