1978 Puch Challenger MX
This is my 1978 Puch Challenger Mx that hung in my parents' garage for nearly 30 years!
Having recently returned to BMX in my 40s I decided it was time to find this bike, give it some TLC and restore it. It is nearly all original, including tires. I have not seen another like this one on the museum. Most Puch pics are from 1979 or later and have a tubular steel fork, whereas this one is a classic flat Ashtabula steel. These bikes were popular in the tri-state areas of CT, NY and NJ in the late 70s where you would not only find Puchs, but also the immensely popular Fuji 500x and Rampar R10s. This thing stood out because of the bright yellow color which has unfortunately faded with age.
