1949 NSU Gents Bicycle Model 41

1949 NSU Herrenrad Model 41

With such high build and design standards, NSU is one of my favourite German bicycle marques.

As you can see in the brochure above, there was a choice of colours.

To read my observations about NSU bicycle models, as well as brochures for this model range, some NSU history, and a record of NSU frame numbers to help to date them, please refer to the page on my 1951 NSU Ladies model further down this website (or link at the bottom of this page)

This one was very cosmetically challenged when obtained by my friend Pat in Paris.

His full restoration of it was a labour of love.

Note the cable-operated mechanical bell (below) that operates off the front wheel

This bicycle is currently on its way to me from France, being delivered to me by my friend Bertrand.

I’ll add more photos when I take it out for spin

It has now arrived and is enjoying a spot of typical English rain

The above brochures are for 1938, 1949 and 1951 models respectively. With thanks to http://www.NSU24.de
