The Puch M125 was sold in Canada and the USA under the Sears Allstate brand, similar to Piaggio and Gilera products.
Produced in Austria, the M125 was renowned for its robust motor and general reliability. After producing a line of split-singles since the 1920s, the M125 was the first “conventional” two-stroke produced by Steyer-Puch and was quickly adopted for trials work, especially ISDT-type competition. Interestingly, the cylinder is chrome plated. For racing the displacement was increased to 175cc and six-speed gearbox was used.
There is a restored version of this bike in the Barber Motorsport Museum as it was the favorite pit bike of Lotus Cars’ founder, Colin Chapman. One Day I might get mine looking a nice as that one, I rescued it from under a deck from a nice old guy that had fond memories of riding the country roads.
