Yeah, I just got my first puch and I think its an amazingly engineered machine. I wouldn't pay the prices magnums are going for, and I have my eyes on a g3 right now, but they are rock solid. The one I just got seized up like 4 years ago, sat outside all that time, got sold to the local scooter repair store for the hour of labor dude put into to decide it was going to cost a shit ton of money to fix, got bought by me, got freed up and running in half a week with only a noisy bearing and some surface rust on the chrome that came off with scuffy pads and steel wool. Puch made a mean solid bike, I just can't see spending the 500-900 dollars I have seen them go for on anything besides like an almost new bike. If I could find one derilect and in need of some lovin, sure I'd rock it, but I think they are going to be popular for a long time.
