Any NSU owners out there?

Hi, I am new here and thought I'd check in. I just aquired a 195? NSU Superfox. Does anyone have any info on parts resources etc. Thanks.

British bike magazines like "Classic Bike" and "The Classic Motorcycle" have had several articles about them. A neat bike for sure. I think the cam drive was by eccentric connecting rods. Maybe it had lots of roller bearings, too.

By reputation, very refined but also sporty. I'd love one, myself

here's some basic specs- http://www.cybermotorcycle.com/euro/...u_superfox.htm

I have NSU Pretis (http://www.nsumotor.onlinehome.de/pretis.htm). Bought it a two years ago and learned to ride on it. It's partly restored and after carb cleaning it's going to the market (need money for bmw r60/7).




The bike is highly reliable. The parts are tricky to find, especially used. New parts cost money. So sometimes you will need to use your ingenuity, like I did .Instead of the old exhaust I put a pipe from vacume cleaner . And replaced the old clutch cable with new bicycle brake cable (must be the same length).
I have user manual for NSU Maxi. Comparing pictures of Maxi and Superfox their build seems to be the same (frame, wheels, fork and everything else except for the Engine displacement and maybe the carb).
PM me with your mail for the manual.

Where are you located? US?

There is dealer in Atlanta, GA who might be able to help out http://www.bluemooncycle.com/ This dealer carries all kinds of vintage bikes and parts.

NSU parts source

I purchase a factory repair manual for my NSU several years ago from
NSU-Motzke. They are email friendly with an english speaking/writing staff.

Web site is www.nsu-motzke.de

Money sent to them has to be converted to DM at your bank. Your banker can tell you how to do it. My new repair manual (in 1995) cost less than $50 including postage and $ to DM fees. Not bad I thought considering the rarety and how far it shipped.

Most parts are availible for NSU's. Gotta look in Germany and pay the costs involved to get them here.

Never seen any tech info and very little other info that wasn't in German. Be prepaired to get a translation program for you PC.

I purchased a few parts from Blue Moon 10 years ago. I can talk about that experience in person. I think he uses NSU-Motzke.

I'll look into some of the other web sites mentioned by previous posters.

I have a 1952 NSU standard Lux. Almost no information out there on this bike. Not even at Barbers library or the internet. Only a few registered on the NSU registry in the U.S.

Gotta build that bike someday.

By "NSU," do you mean non-specific urethritis?

My dad bought me a 1953 250 Max in 1976. Other than still wearing a botched paint job that I did when I was 18, Max has run fine all these years. Thanks dad.

There is a guy up here in Seattle who has about seven NSU's IIRC, and has lines on experts... His name is Tim Fowler and he is heavily involved in the Honda CB160 vintage racing scene (here and Portland). If you can track him down, I am sure he can help.
