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.

Pac Man advertisement

This Puch Man advertisement is obviously a very cool play on the popular Pac Man game. It is from 1982 and shows they are still promoting the Trak Pro model.

 

 

Early 1981 advertisement

Posted in 1981,Puch Advertisements by Racer on March 13, 2011

This advertisement shows them promoting the Challenger model. This bike clearly was before and after the release of the Trak Pro. The Trak Pro was aimed as a high end racer. The Challenger as a entry level racer or street thrasher.

 

 

Summer 1980 Trak Pro advertisement

Posted in 1980,Puch Advertisements by Racer on March 13, 2011

This shows the Puch Trak Pro came out in the summer of 1980. Perhaps as early as Spring. This ad seems to have first appeared in the June 1980 issue of “Bicycle Motocross Action”.
