Oh, I believe it. This Puch was a $200 non-runner. I got it because I knew I wanted to go frame-up this time, to really learn what makes these tick. The engine surely was underwater for some time, because the inner cases were full of rusty gunk. It did not come with a carb, but the top of a Bing carb was dangling from the throttle cable. I'm sure the kid I bought it from has no clue where the original ZA is. Maybe I'll get a ZA in the future! But for now, this is what I've got....
