Don't know much about Austrian Puch but I don't think they ever produced anything similar to the front traction French Solex (which is what shows in the bottom picture picture). I'm familiar with Solex because my mother's cousin owned a few of those, he lives in France.
Your correct my error. I had both. The Velosolex was the front engine and the Puch was more conventional. Had many motorized vehicles in my earlier days.

ok - i gotta ask. where were you riding these?
mostly cause i'm nosy and want to know your past, and secondly, cause i've never seen them other than the internet.
(feel free not to answer - i'll just make shit up in my head, along with the rest of the shit i make up)

I had many motorized toys starting at a very young age, go carts, dirt bikes, street bikes, cars.... Can always swap stories in person... Don’t like to post too much info on an open forum 😊

My hoarding mentality finally paid off!
The M785 rear brake hose was short and I had a new hose saved in my Jenson cart but I remembered I had saved a hose from the SLX brakes that moved from the Talon to the defunct Trance 2 years ago. Sure enough... go thru my boxes and its there! It is still a tad bit short but nothing to complain about. Yay! saved $25!

My Spearfish as it's ridden. 2 full bottles. Tube. Tool kit. Top tube bag. Garmin. There's a pump and food in the bag. Seems a bit heavy but I don't ride with a Camelback or bring anything else with me. I much prefer the weight on the bike.

what kind of matchy pedals are on there?
I really like the new carbon molds. Having two bottles is just right for lots of my rides. That's a trend I'd buy into
