Puch built innovative 2-stroke machines that featured two pistons on a single connecting rod. This unusual arrangement allowed them to use unsymmetrical port timing, which improved the power output. Puch motorcycles were marketed in the U.S.A. by the Sears, Roebuck Co. from 1950 to 1979 under the Allstate label.
