1928 NSU R201 Pictures

A lovely old picture sent in by Steve Greczmiel of his grandparents riding a motorcycle. He’s trying to identify the manufacture and year of it. The picture was taken in the 1920′s in Germany and as you can see, his grandfather (Opa) and grandmother (Oma) were enjoying their ride!

Thanks to Wiebe Brouwer for pointing out that this might be a NSU R 201 build in 1928 or 29. The front forks identify the year. The registration number is from the former German province of Silezia.

And also thanks to Leon for his comments: I wonder if it’s a bit earlier than 1928? Having a look at the very detailed NSU site www.nsu-greifzu.de/html/nsu_201_t.html#NSU2PS. The 1925 2 h.p. NSU “Pony” seems to fit the bill: 2 speed (with funny long gear lever), belt drive, no front brake, and the “new” springs-in-tension fork. The 1928 201 R (R=belt drive – getting a bit old fashioned in 1928) seems to have a front brake, 3 speed gearbox and a bigger fuel tank”
