NSU 1909 3½ hp 410 cc 1 cyl ioe frame # 92 engine # 15325
The company started as a knitting machine manufacturer ( Neckarsulmer Strickmaschinen Union) and went into the bicycle trade in 1886.
It was a logic step to move into motorcycle production and in 1901 the first motorised NSU bicycle with Zédel clip on engine was produced. Soon the development and production of the company’s own engines were taken up and the firm became one of the biggest motorcycle firms in Germany, exporting machines to many countries.
Already in veteran days many different models were marketed, in various capacity classes.
This 3 ½ HP model is single geared and was originally sold to Australia.
It is a well- sorted older restoration.
