They stopped selling them to the public as they gave women headaches:



but the east german navy continued to use them for reconnaissance missions into the west:

It looks like a mental conversion of a Honda 50

But also very interesting

there was one for sale about 6 months ago, useable but needing some minor work (mainly cosmetic). I made contact about buying it, but the seller already had an offer in from Germany for it. They also made a few mopeds which pop up from time to time.

For me, I think the NSU Prima is a far better looking scooter, and you can also find NSU Quicklys pop up for sale more often in the UK
