I guess everyone knows the song 1952 Vincent Black Lightning well here is a new version featuring a 1954 Puch 250SGS.
Its in German with a heavy, heavy, HEAVY Austrian dialect but you get the idea.
p.s. I have a 1952 Vincent Rapide and a 1954 Puch 250 SGS and can confirm a top speed of the 250SGS as 110km/h lying on the tank with a tail wind :) .
Click the link and enjoy.

One day we may swap and you can ride my Maico. It would be interesting to compare 250s from a similar time.

I think that is brilliant, wonder if they could remake the video using the real thing, did Richard Thompson get any royalties?

I once had a Puch 125 ISDT replica. On tight roads it was a weapon. Seriously regret selling it.

I've been using an MZ TS250 as my second bike for 30 years. Security isn't a problem. No self respecting bike thief would be seen dead on it! Cheers, Stu.
Nothing wrong with MZ's Stu.I had two of them and found them to be a pleasure to ride once you had got rid of the poor quality East German bearings, final drive chain and tyres.

Quite right Len, I wouldn't have been riding one all these years if they'd been rubbish, but, as you say, they did have some shortcomings. I'd like to know who came up with a tail light unit where the bulb holder was insulated and the bulb terminals switched to earth, and the guy who designed? the brake light switch must have had an awful grudge against MZ. On the other hand, the helically cut primary drive gears and the clutch throwout would frighten japanese manufacturers silly. Cheers, Stu.

No such problems with Puchs (& any way not from the Eastern countries) .
Here is my 1954 Puch 250SGS and my Red Molly
