Post-Sale Update: After 27 bids on eBay, this Puch Sabre sold for $959.

Manufactured for Sears by Puch, the Puch Sabre is technically a motorcycle, though it was marketed as a moped. This European beauty features one of the more interesting-looking engines we’ve ever seen.

Puch Sabre - Engine

The Sabre utilized a 50cc engine and 3-speed transmission to propel it to a top speed of about 50 miles per hour. To help with the required pre-mix of oil and gas, they come with a nifty little egg cup in the fuel cap, so you know how much oil to put it. From the factory, there was no ignition or battery – just kick it and go. You’ll just have to make sure that you park somewhere safe!

Puch Sabre - Gauges

This specific Puch Sabre is just two pieces shy of being 100% original – the throttle control and tail light lens. Though it’s running now, budget for a top end rebuild sometime soon. We’re curious to see what the reserve ends up being, as it might end up being quite the steal – expect to pay $1,800-2,000 for one of these in good shape. All the parts you’d ever want are available at Motor West in Wisconsin.
