It turns out that there is another big name in the automotive world from Austria, namely Puch. For true automotive enthusiasts, you must be familiar with this brand which was quite famous in the 1950s to the 1960s. Well this time we will discuss the figure of a unique scooter which also comes from the Austrian manufacturer.

Puch Motorcycles is one of the oldest manufacturers in Europe, founded in 1891 in Graz, Austria, when Johann Puch & Comp was originally dedicated to bicycle production. As time goes by, besides bicycles, this manufacturer also produces cars, mopeds, scooters, motorbikes and machinery.
The company built their first motorcycle in 1903, and by 1912, the year company founder Johann Puch retired, the factory produced more than 300 motorbikes and cars every year, along with about 16,000 bicycles.
 
After World War II, they built two-stroke off-road and road bikes with 125, 175, and 250cc engines, as well as various scooters and mopeds with smaller engines. It is also known that Puch's machines are widely used by various brands of motorbikes and scooters and some of them are marketed in the United States by Sears Roebuck as Allstate engines.

Next to the scooters, this Austrian brand has also ever produced scooters in the 1950s to 1960s, with several models being born from the production line at its factory located in Graz. Until the end of the 1950s, this Austrian manufacturer saw strong sales due to the European public high interest to scooters.

The Puch's scooters have developed a reputation for reliability and are popular for everyday commuting, providing good weather protection and ease of use. Its first scooter model was known as the Puch RL 125 which had a 2-stroke 125cc engine and was mated to a 3-speed manual transmission system was shifted from the left twistgrip. According to some sources, the Puch scooter model bodywork elements were developed in collaboration with the Lambretta maker, although they are not intended for sports use.
Puch SR 150 was delivering better performance of 6 hp rather than 5 hp but retaining three-speeds gearbox. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/3ocGH6C)
The Puch's first model scooters went into production in 1951 and were also known for their moderate performance, with a top speed of around 45 mph, was not a problem. The next Puch SR 150 'Alpine' model has a 150cc engine and foot-operation, delivering better performance of 6 hp rather than 5 hp but retaining three-speeds gearbox.
In 1987, the motorcycle division of this brand became part of Piaggio Group and still produces bikes under the name Puch. When the bicycle division of Piaggio, which also included Bianchi Bicycles was sold to the Swedish Grimaldi Industri group in 1997, Puch became part of Cycleurope. In 2011, Austrian entrepreneur Josef Faber took control of the brand, with the 2012 line of bicycles manufactured by Cycleurope in France.
