Here is my 1954 NSU Quickly in all its Patina Glory. Is there Vincent history with this... ahem... motorcycle? At this time I think its the cheapest Vinnie buy-in. Third cousin twice removed.

And then NSU did the dirty on Vincents just like the MOD did twice with the life boat and the plane
Its a wonder it all lasted as long as it did

Acording to David Wright "Vincent the complete story" P118 what happened at the end of Vincents first year contract was
"When the holders of the UK rights to the NSU contract saw exactly how profitable the distribution scheme was, they refused to renew the contract and set upn their own distribution company"

From the foto it seems, yr fork is bent to the rear. Recommend to check wheelbase length to be sure.

Yes. You are correct. Maybe a couple of Girdraulic blades will fix the fork. Note the bungee cords mounted on rear fender to keep a young lady's skirt from going into the rear wheel.

My father had a Quickly in the 50s (not a Vin unfortunately). Since it was the only family transport he fitted a dual seat and footrests. Almost every time we went out, a cop would flag us down and say " You do realise it's illegal to carry a passenger without a ....... errrr ........ proper seat and ......... errrrr ......... footrests. Well, I've never seen one of those before, off you go." A short time after, NSU brought out the dual seat version. :)

Can you imagine a cop stopping you today like that, half of them would think a 'dual seat' was a malformation of your back side. and would be far to busy checking the ANPR or the speed gun

The short answer is, it is currently one of the "in things" to be. What I find distressing is the overall umbrella in thing is to be negative about just about everything that was considered "cool" by previous generations, regardless.

You only have to see TV car adverts to understand how anti motor transport the world is I cannot belive that none of them mention performance, economy, cornering storage space and above all actual price infact all the things you should need to know, instead they show how connected to the internet they are how big the distracting screen in the dash is, the groovy people who buy the tin box and frankly anything except the car itself, how strange.
Of couse apart from Honda's" You meet the nicest people etc" no motorcycle maker has ever extolled freedom easy parking missing jams and economy to the general public so we cannot talk.
