Bob Pavlik informs me that, "The two head tube gussets were formed so they sat closer together near the center of the tubes, very hard to clean between!" If I'm not mistaken, there is a Puch logo or text (which is not visible in the above photo) on the gusset.
Bob VonMoss adds, "I think Puch had given up on the BMX line by 1982." "I think they actually had something of a team around 1980 and were based on the East Coast somewhere, I think all the Puch riders were pretty much from the New Jersey area?" "From what I remember the Puch frame seemed smaller than a regular Mongoose frame as far as the wheelbase goes." "I think the Puch jersey was white with a blue and green logo, something like a circle divided into 4 pieces of a pie, where 2 pieces were blue and 2 green."
Bob also has this to say about Puch's invisibility on the BMX scene:
"Part of the problem with Puch was that they obviously did not penetrate the distributor network, because virtually none of the people selling stuff at the track sold Puch frames, only through Puch dealers." "People raced Puch's at Nationals but they just never had high profile riders and only good expert racers."
