Not collectible, and not good quality. Old doesn’t mean classic, sometimes it’s just “old”. I wouldn’t touch this thing with a 10ft pole.

Executive was a house brand for a chain store.

Cycle produced by Styria/Steyr/Puch of Graz, Austria.
One unique dimension on machines of this maker is a steerer of 26.0mm diameter. Means headset special.

Plate style bridges are by ESGE.

Rear hub will be by Fichtel und Sachs - Torpedo brand.

Chainset appears it may be Thun pattern.

Date looks like mid to late 1960's.

Is wheel size 26 X 1 3/8?

Euro version of the machine might have been fitted with size 650A.
