PUCH 250 SGS

Restoring a barn-fresh 1966 Sears Allstate

Parts in the mail, hole in the fender.

I received som parts form Bill in the US. I was especially looking for the left sidecover. It looks good.

I picked up a sealed 6v 12aH battery and thought I’d see what happens. To my surprise and delight it sparks and the lights work! I posted a video in the forum. http://puch.nortonfastback.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4

While cleaning the gunk/goo off the rear brake arm, I noticed that there was something behind the licence plate. Now we’ve stared at this bike for untold hours – poked it and noodled with it (not actually doing any real work on it) and never noticed.

PUCH_250_1969 A nice Michigan plate. Much better looking and in better condition than the yellow 1970 plate.
