Did the 1967/68 Puch 250 come with a locking front fork?

Thanks Draco

I am thinking that it may have been an extra option at the time.'

some came with locking forks and some did not.

Is it a 68 by the VIN? If so what is the model number There were 4 different model numbers for the 250 that year.
