Sears Allstate Puch Motor Scooter

Sears sold vehicles from several manufacturers, badged with the Sears “Allstate” brand. Most Allstate models were scooters, but several motorcycles and a car were sold under the Allstate marque. Vespa and Cushman scooters are the most commonly recognized Allstate models.

Motor-scooters were available by mail before World War II through “Popular Mechanics,” but when Gambles stores began selling them in 1946, mail-order motorscooters took on a whole new meaning. Thousands were sold through catalogs by Gambles, Montgomery Ward, and Sears, Roebuck & Co. Sears began offering Cushman scooters under the name brand “Allstate” in their catalogue in 1951 and, in 1961, began carrying Puch scooters.

In 1963, Sears dropped all scooters from their catalog.

    They had a bike listed in the mid sixties call a Mohave, I think that was the name. It was an unfulfilled boyhood dream!
