1923
The split-single engine, designed by Italian engineer Giovani Marcellino in 1923, was used in most Puch two-stroke machines built after the first war. Marcellino's design had asymmetric port timing and two pistons one behind the other, for better cylinder filling and a longer power stroke.

...the M125, introduced at the Cologne Show in 1966. A stylish sports roadster, the M125 was powered by a single-cylinder air-cooled engine, boasting a distinctive 'sunburst' head, that produced 11bhp in standard trim. This engine would prove exceptionally robust, a standard unit powering a Puch to victory in the 125cc class and 2nd place overall in the 1967 ISDT.

Puch Motoesa Mini Maxi


A folding 50cc minibike made in Portugal by EFS Motoesa (Veículos e Motores Motoesa, Lda., Borralha, Águeda). One bold adverisement of the day which reads "Motor Puch 500 c.c. Automatico" was perhaps a tad optimistic.
