In the Netherlands, Puch is best known for the typical mopeds, which were particularly popular in the 1960s. The original model was the MS 50, which appeared in the Netherlands in 1954 and was later named Baby Puch because of the small petrol tank. This moped was very modern for that time, including telescopic suspension and a motor with forced cooling. He cost 650 guilders and that was a lot of money. This model had an easy low entry for skirt wearers. Because the economy improved, the moped became available to more and more young people. It was the 'Frogs', The Hague's nozems, who were the first to understand that this Puch-ladies' bicycle could also be used for gentlemen with some adjustments. Similar to the Mods in England, who chose the scooter above the engine, they challenged the rockers on their tough 'men's bikes'.
In the series Nederland retro we have several Dutch pictures on beautiful Delft blue plates. A very nice gift with nostalgic images that are still very contemporary. 25cm
