C.1957 NSU 247CC SUPERMAX (LOT 614)
FRAME NO. 1200597
ENGINE NO. 781295
NSU produced some outstanding and influential designs in the 1950s, foremost of which was the 250cc Max, introduced in 1952. The Max used a pressed-steel frame (entirely enclosing the rear suspension) and a leading-link front fork, but its most unusual feature was the Albert Roder-designed 'Ultramax' connecting-link drive for the single overhead camshaft. A luxury tourer, the Max was no lightweight so acceleration was leisurely, but once at its maximum of 75-80mph could be cruised there all day with the minimum of fuss. The ultimate version, the Supermax, appeared in 1956 boasting conventional twin-shock rear suspension and a slightly more powerful engine. What hadn't changed though, was the exemplary standard of reliability, build quality and finish that had characterised the Max line from the start. Boasting a new saddle and replacement rubbers, this Supermax is believed to be in original condition and is offered for re-commissioning. Offered without documents, the machine currently displays a total of 4,317km on the odometer.

£3,000 - 5,000
€3,300 - 5,600
To be sold without reserve

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
