A few months ago we spotted this 1978 golden Puch Swinger 2 or if you want to call it a J.C. Penney Swinger that’s also fine. This moped is by far the most awesome Puch Swinger we have spotted in the last years! Enjoy this piece of art by the creator ‘PrettyBombers’.

Gold Puch Swinger 2


ABOUT THE 1978 PUCH SWINGER 2 + OWNER

Pretty Bomber Cycles in Denver is the big talented brain behind this golden Puch Swinger 2. Mopedrich.com¬†also recently published one of Prettybombers’ other amazing projects, the Puch Cobra. You should certainly check out this project as well, but first enjoy this one :-)!

The Golden Puch swinger 2 was the first moped of Prettybombers and has been through a lot of transformations: from just a frame to a parts bike to a fully restored moped and then back again to a parts bike.

The Puch swinger is literately put together from a bunch of scrapped Puch parts before prettybombers really decided to make it fully great again as it is now.

This swinger is not just a moped. It has a lot of sentimental value. Prettybombers even sold it to a friend and then bought it back. Now that’s what we call ‘Puch Addiction’.


OUR VIEW ON THIS PROJECT

Gold Puch Swinger 2

This project reminds me of my own golden Puch Maxi S.  Next to a sweet combination of the golden colour, chrome parts (exhaust) and whitewall tires I also love the way he has added a touch of brown leather (seat and handlebars).

Gold, Chrome and whitewall tires

The only thing I would perhaps change are the rims. Imagine that these were also in chrome instead of black, how nice would that match with the exhaust?

Because of the way he has transformed the Swinger into a great example of Make Puch Great Again we give this project a big 9/10!
