Puch fixie Part 3 (finished pictures)

Hey everyone not been on in a while

I have recently managed to finish the Puch off and is looking awesome. In this post i will  have some pictures going from the start of the build to the end product which i am very pleased with !

The Puch is also for sale at
more pictures inside

So This is what the puch looks like after a few hours of stripping cleaning and rebuilding. it has had 2 new wheels fitted. The Rear wheel is a Sealed flip flopTrack Fixed hub setup as a fixed gear with a 16t chainring, this is a 700c wheel. 

 the front is a 700c wheel with a shimano hub on the wheels do not match but are very similar and are exactly the same size. it has also had a pair of gum wall tyres put on it which keep with the vintage look of the bike

Here you can see the new stem i put in it was just lying around in the workshop at work so i put that on and it looks so much better you can also see a bit of the bra tape i wrapped the bars with. I have not quite finished the wrapping yet as i did not have any white tape to finish it with

This picture shows some of the rust around the bottom bracket. i decided not to Re-spray the frame as i like how the rust adds to the vintage feel of the bike

Standard toe clip pedals

 I did a bit of work on the bottom bracket and cleaned up the cranks and fitted a new chain. the bottom bracket bearings were in fairly good condition, i just gave them a clean re-greased them and put them all back together. I also fitted a new KMC singlespeed chain as the old one was shot

You can see a bit of rust on the seat springs i could have ground it off but i thought that it adds to a bit of the character of the bike. is also a really comfy saddle!

Well There you go. The Puch Fixie is finished and looking really good ! the white bar tape and gum wall tyres really go with the overall look of the bike. i have had a brief ride of it and it really is a lovely bike to ride !

It is up for sale now i am looking in the region of £200 for it but will take offers
