Unsurprisingly, NSU Quickly’s have become very popular with enthusiasts who like riding classic motorcycles without investing a fortune.

This example is in first class condition. Spares are easy to find (Roger Worton’s ‘NSU Quickly Spares’ company provides an excellent service to keep our Quickly’s on the road).

With its excellent reputation for reliability and cheap running costs, an NSU Quickly is a logical choice if you fancy a vintage motorcycle from the fifties at an affordable price.

NSU Quickly – the ‘Sensational 49cc Streamlined Autocycle’ – £49 18/- 4d

The NSU Quickly was the ‘Cyclemotor Killer’

120.jpg

So what was all the fuss about?

Essentially, it was a superb design for its day and was launched right at the beginning of the ‘moped onslaught’ of 1954.

q2.jpg

It was a fast machine with a 2-speed gearbox. Even though customers might not have realized at the beginning how reliable the engine was, it still set such an impossibly high standard for moped design that it killed off the cyclemotor instantly.

One of the most attractive aspects for buyers was the excellent back-up service worldwide.

Interestingly, it was described in the 1955 advert above as a ’49cc streamlined autocycle’ – the term ‘moped’ had not been adopted yet. Notice how ‘NSU lecture and service vans tour the country.’ And those vans were Volkswagens: NSU could be considered the moped equivalent of the VW, a ‘volksmoped.’

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.
