You can bet someone owns the Puch name, the big question is, does anybody still own the design patents to '70s model Puchs? If not, someone could reproduce the Puch design under a different name. But nobody is going to do it. The market is not there. Tomos has the U.S. moped market sewed up, and they are in trouble with the EPA. Just because a handfull of people would buy them doesn't make it worthwhile to mass produce them. As for the Indian name, that is the most convoluted nightmare I've ever seen. In the past 20 years, at least that many companies have tried to revive the Indian Motorcycle Company. Every single one of them failed. As of right now, the Indian name is tied up so deep in litigation it may never see the light of day again, which might not be a bad thing. Indian is dead, let it rest in peace. Meanwhile, I have a completely undamaged rust free Puch frame, and a near new E50, with less than 300 miles on it, never been apart. I'm running the Puch with a ZA50 right now, but someday I'm going to completely restore it, including new sidecovers, and install the E50 in it. It will probably outlast me. Peace. Jerry.
