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. by Sears, Roebuck & Co. from 1950 to 1979 under the Allstate label.

Christmas of 1969 the Sears near us had stacks of motorcycles new in crates on display. The 250 was $249 so I had to have one. The 250s were all 1967 models but Missouri titled them as 1969 from the open statement of origin. I really wanted a Yamaha so never appreciated the Puch for how good it really was. The enclosed chain and deep fenders made it so much more civilized and the handling was excellent. Sold it when I left for boot camp but like others I wish I had kept it.

I OWNED A PUCH SGS 250 IN 1969 BRAND NEW BUT STORED FOR SOME TIME. IT WAS SOLID AS GRANITE GAVE 100 MPG AND TOPPED OUT AT AROUND 65-68 MPH. I SHOULD HAVE KEPT IT ,THE BSA LIGHTNING THAT FOLLOWED WAS A HEAP OF SHIT.
