1963 NSU Quick 50 Motorcycle

quick50_1

These dodgy-looking characters attempting nonchalance around a Quick 50 seem to have been inspired by sixties album covers. There’s definitely something reminiscent there of Eric Burden and the Animals.

Goodness me. Some more groovy folks below, standing to attention behind a Quick 50. Apparently much cheaper to get four fellows from the German equivalent of Central Casting to hold up pictures of (what I assume to be) celebrities than to pay the actual celebrities themselves. Someone obviously got a bonus at NSU’s advertising agency for that masterstroke.

The Quick 50 is one of the rarest NSU’s. Mine needs some parts …but rare bikes are allowed some leeway 🙂

Parts that are missing are the carb, engine covers, chainguard, rear lamp, headlamp nacelle with correct headlamp rim, lens and speedo.

This is an interesting restoration project. I was going to do it. But once a year I prune my vehicle collection and sell the ones that haven’t moved forward in the restoration queue. Unfortunately, the Quick 50 is one of those.

It has a V5C, and is registered BFX 71A.

The engine turns over with compression.

Very few Quick Fifties were made. A kick-start meant that it din’t enjoy the advantages that pedal-start mopeds were afforded at the time. It was not made for long. Today it’s just about the rarest NSU.

I hope you can see all you need to from the pictures. If not, feel free to email or phone and pick my brains.

To all you who appreciate a rare machine that has the added bonus of good performance and eligibility for classic moped racing, I wish you good luck bidding…

***********

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts

– but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.

Two-strokes invariably need basic servicing before starting them, if they’ve been left to stand for more than 3 weeks or so.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
