From 1889 Johann Puch (1862–1914) worked as an agent for Humber vehicles and manufacturer of Styria safety bicycles in a small workshop in Graz and in 1890 he founded his first company, Johann Puch & Comp., employing 34 workers.

Cyclists like Josef Fischer, winning the first edition of Paris–Roubaix in 1896, popularized Styria bicycles which were even exported to England and France. By 1895, Puch already employed more than 300 workers producing about 6000 bikes a year.

1932, Puch offered two models the “250T (T= touren)” with 6hp and “250 Sport” with 9hp both with 250cc split single engine. Only in 1930 the first 250 Sport models had a Bronze-cylinderhead with 7hp, the later machines from 1931-1932 are fitted with a Silumin-cylinder head and had a power output of 9hp. All 250 Sport models had a chromed tank.
