Better representation. After playing with the chainring spacing, the chainline seems decent now. Just waiting on the headset and a different fork to get it rideable.

Had a spare XO brake lying around, so decided to try something different with it...
XO brake adapted to fixed gear build

So the headset on my Puch is f*cked, notchy and struggles to stay done up without play. Bought an inch threaded headset and the threading on the fork is different. Also everything in the new headset is 0.01in bigger in diameter internally. Threading on the top nut of the old headset is M26x1

Anyone care to enlighten me on what the f*ck is happening here? I thought inch threaded was inch threaded and that was that.

Pretty sure Puch were Austrian which sort of makes sense as the only other thread I've found that mentions it was on LFGSS about some Ukrainian track bike.

Managed to get it feeling acceptable enough for now so hoping it stays that way.

Finally rideable. Feels surprisingly comfortable. Adapted a Trek Speed Concept fork to it; now just needs to be painted black. Haven't made a final weight, but I believe it is about 16lbs.

Finally rideable
