NSU Motorcycle and Side-Car

1938 NSU began as a knitting machine manufacturer, established in the town of Neckarsulm in 1884. In the early years of the 20th Century, NSU motorcycles appeared as a natural continuation of the bicycle business, and in 1905 the first NSU car appeared. The NSU 501T was a heavy touring bike, often sold with a sidecar, and produced from 1927-29. It was succeeded in 1930 by the 501TS, and then in 1937 by the larger-engined 601TS. This particular 601TS one of 6,900 made, was produced on July 26th 1938 and delivered to the Turkish Ministry of Defence in Ankara later that year. The sidecar is a “Royal”, with uprated suspension to cope with rough roads.
