      Hello to all the Puch enthusiasts out there following the demise of the old forum. Hope this one works out.
      I took the 1960 SGS250 for a run yesterday and had a pleasing trip. It’s a reliable and comfortable bike to ride. How is everyone else doing? Chris

      Mine 57 SG has been off the road a few years but I hope to get it going again in 2022 🙂

      Hi Phil. It’s been some years since I rebuilt the SGS but if you need any advice, hopefully this ol’ pom can give you some guidance. Mind you, I’m probably telling my granny how to suck eggs.
      One amusing incident when dismantling the frame. We were trying to remove the rear wheel spindle. The nuts came off easily enough but the spindle seemed to be seized into the frame. We had about 8 tonnes on it in the press together with penetrating oil, heat, you name it, we tried it. So we thought OK, let’s try and get some twist on it. With a bit of effort, it started turning anti-clockwise. Well, who puts threads on wheel spindles? Puch. That’s who!

      Funnily enough, I’m Phil too.
      Oh my, at least the threads held with 8tonnes on the press! My SGS is running fine – I’ve got the 175 that needs a rebuild. The cylinder has been recoated (nikasil, not chrome!) but other than that, it’s patiently waiting it’s turn in my que of projects.
