Puch 250 Twin-Carb (Harry Everts Replica) – 1975

The Austrian Puch company hired Belgium motocross rider Harry Everts in 1974 to compete in the FIM 250cc World MX Grand Prix's. Though he had many top finishes that first year, it wasn't until 1975 that Everts and the Puch found true racing form. Evert's rewarded Puch with its first World Championship in motocross.
It was no small feat for a European company to win the championship, especially in only its second year of competition against the dominate Japanese Suzuki's that had won four 250cc championships in a row. The factory Puch was a spectacular machine! Marzocchi front and rear suspension with an all new design frame, generous use of magnesium in the motor, hubs, and forks, and a very unique "twin carb" design with one Bing carburetor feeding a traditional piston port and a second carb feeding a rotary valve on the right side of the engine.
The Puch factory is the only company to every reproduce the factory works bike in significant numbers. 90 machines were built in 1975 and sold to wealthy owners in 1976.
Please enjoy this Frans Munsters restored classic! I'm quite sure this is the nicest example in the world!
