This 1958 NSU Quickly S moped was acquired by the seller while on a trip to England in 2014 and subsequently imported to the US. Finished in two-tone green, the bike is powered by a 49cc two-stroke single which was refurbished by the seller with a new cylinder, piston bearings, seals, case half, and more. Additional work under current ownership included replacement of the dry clutch for the two-speed transmission as well as replacing bushings on the leading-link front suspension. This Quickly S is offered with a 428-page binder of factory literature and manuals, UK registration, importation documents, recent parts receipts, and a California bill of sale.

NSU built more than a million Quickly mopeds from 1953 to 1968, and the S version featured larger fenders, a speedometer, and chrome wheels. This example is said to have been repainted under previous ownership with a dark green frame, fenders, fork, and luggage rack as well as a lighter-hued headlamp housing and fuel tank. A ding and scratch on the fuel tank are pointed out in the gallery, and the seller has not been able to source the correct headlamp bulb.
