New Puch Project

Hello to you all,
Was looking for a project bike, and picked up this Puch hoard yesterday. 1966 Sears Allstate. Looks like there’s almost enough for 2 bikes amongst these parts. One is pretty rough, the other appears to be a good candidate. Came with 2 motors and a rebuild kit. I’d love to find a solo seat, but a bit of research tells me they’re either expensive, or very hard to come by, but I’m getting way ahead of myself here...
Looking for exhaust as well, I have the pipes, but missing silencers/mufflers.
Very happy to have stumbled upon this forum! Look forward to chatting.
Cheers.

Welcome to the forum.

There were a couple of 250's that recently (yesterday) disappeared off the local Kijiji. Should we assume those are now yours?

That’s the one. Was on Kijiji for a few days, near Whitby.

It could be advantageous if you put your (general) location in your profile.

Phil, who hosts this forum, is near Yonge & Davisville. I am near Laird & Eglinton. We both have '66 250SGSs. I'm just finishing up putting in new crankcase seals.

They were there for quite a while. Months? Started off at $2000, IIRC, and last was @ 1300.

How are the seals coming along?
