Built by Puch in Austria it is original except for saddle ( I have the original but it failed when its' leather rotted). Sears wanted to offer a full range of bicycles; this was their best. Original tires (not shown) still hold air but not used for riding. Not bad for its day.

Back in 1964, my first road bike was the cheaper version of this bike. It looked the same but differed in having Huret derailleurs instead of Campagnolo. You can see it in my photos, it is the last catalog entry. In 1964, I was 13 and my buddies rode Schwinn Continentals. My bike was lighter, quicker, had better handling and better workmanship. Big thrills when you are 13. Did I mention that it was also cheaper? My little buddies still teased me for having a bike from Sears.
