Lot 428: c.1964 NSU 49cc Quickly

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

Another motorcycle manufacturer with its roots in the bicycle industry, NSU built its first powered two-wheeler in 1900, and went on to produce some outstanding and influential designs in the 1950s. Its most popular model in the UK in the post-WWII years was the Quickly moped, a 49cc single-cylinder two-stroke equipped with two-speed, twist-grip ’change transmission. Introduced in 1953, the Quickly achieved sales of over a million worldwide. This three-speed Quickly is one of the last of its kind made. Apparently fundamentally original and complete, the machine is offered for restoration and comes with Swansea V5.
