    Seems like I read somewhere about these being imported in to Australia as well as here. You may do a little digging on their BMX sites. Can't dafe a loop tail! Nice find. My first motorcycle was a Sears badged Puch. Total Honda dream Knock-off!

    @heyslugger
    After more searching I found out the frame and fork was made by Tange for Puch in Japan.

    Love the looptail bikes!

    @gearpunk i found this bike two years ago at a garage sale...bought it for $20 to use as a project bike diddnt do any reasearch until now...how much of an idiot am i for changing the color from red to white. did i just make the biggest mistake of my life??? sorry but i figured you would know more about it than i mainly because i just wanted a bmx to ride around

    @bostonfan532,sorry for the super late response.To me changing a original color all depends on condition of the bike.If a bike is beat to heck and back i will repaint it with a different color.I don't think you made a mistake.Although Puch's are rare they are not very sought after in the BMX community in turn not making them worth very much for resale.I think you did right by making a bike you liked,and able to ride around on.Some people like to hang bikes on walls.Some people like me like to ride them.So I say ride on!
    BTW,I would love to see some photos.We could find out what year and model it is.
