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.
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.
