Restoring a barn-fresh 1966 Sears Allstate

Puch 250 – original Sears price

I stumbled upon a listing on Ebay for a mint unrestored Puch/Allstate 250SGS.  Seeing as ’65 was a bit before my time,  I was interested to know the original Sears price was USD$ 344.00, that is about $2,400 in today’s dollars. The reserve is $2000, so it is actually selling for less than new… hmm. Pretty good value.
It’s nice to see an original condition bike not rusted to bits as most of these are.

Vehicle Description

Up for auction : A 1965 Puch/Sears 250 motorcycle . Pioneering 2 cycle “twinge” engine design with well documented history. Original owner purchased Sept. 1965 from Sears and Roebuck of Louisville KY for $344. The bike was transferred to a relative in Florida in 2003. I purchased the bike from that relative in 2004. I have the original bill of sale and registrations which are part of the package.  Bike currently has clear Ohio title. 4,143 miles.
