puch, vs 50d, my first road legal bike, bought for the grand total of £35 off my old man's mate, it was the summer of 1975 and i was 16, i felt the world was out there for me to discover, my mates brian fennelly, [yamaha fs1e, six months later i bought it off him for twenty brick after he had right royally seized it], des reddy, [garelli tiger] and fraz, [nsu quickly], were out every night, up to the priest house pub at castle donington and swimming in the river, up to the john thompson and trying our luck to buy four halves of mild, ['not tonight lad's, have a nice coca-cola..'.], down the chip shop in allenton, yeah, we used to ride around on the fields on mark wildman's, dad's, panther outfit and barry fould's brother's lambretta, [that's why i was so fast back in the day on my puch, three speed, hand change, yeah, whatever!], but, the puch?, i loved it, the half chrome tank, the aluminium on the flywheel /fan cover, the dinky tool boxes under the seat........
