1960 NSU Quickly ‘S’ 2-Speed

Fully Restored.

MOT TO APRIL 2012.

FREE ROAD TAX.

V5C Registration Document (NSJ 204).

Excellent Running Order

 

With the excellent engineering of the Quickly moped providing a quality machine that totally blew away its competitors when it was introduced – and easy spares availability 50 years later should you ever need any – this must be one of the most practical 51-year-old vintage vehicles you could own and ride.

 


 

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 smart vintage motorcycle 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.

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.’

I’ve been selling vintage vehicles on ebay since 2003, so most vintage enthusiasts know by now how I operate. You’re welcome to phone me to discuss the bike. I can get this bike delivered to main parts of England for only £70 (or £90 to more obscure locations, eg Scotland, Cornwall). I can also advise the buyer regarding cheap insurance, and where to get spares or tyres. Good luck with your bidding!
