Information & Specifications


MODEL INFORMATION

This bike is the previous prototype of the amazing NSU Sportmax (single cylinder), using rolling parts of the Reenmax and engine of the Sportmax.

In the early fifties the NSU Max was launched. It was one of the most celebrated designs among all those produced by the German house, with a long life in racing including different displacements and mechanical arrangements depending on the variant chosen. Of course, unlike many other motorcycles, the differences between the series units and the racing ones were quite noticeable.

The first race-client derived from the NSU Max was the Rennmax. With its 121 kilos, it was propelled by the energy of its two-cylinder engine with two overhead camshafts capable of delivering almost 40 hp at 11,500 revolutions per minute, 2 cylinders and a 6-speed gearbox. A most effective machine, comfortably winning almost any competition in which it was presented. Its descendant was the Sportmax model of 1954 and 1955, with two types of fairing and naked.

Single cylinder, 69 mm x 66 mm = 247 cm3 and 349 cm3, air-cooled, overhead valves, SOHC, Amal GP carburettor, 29 HP at 9,600 R/mn (247 cm3), 4-speed gearbox, larger brake drums double eccentric. The 1954 and 1955 NSU Sportmax, with two types of fairing.

The bike’s first owner was working at the NSU factory in Neckarsulm where he had the opportunity to purchase a Sportmax engine along with other prototype parts when the racing department was disbanded. This Sportmax #3 222 326 engine along with the prototype chassis (using a base chassis from the predecessor Rennmax) was built to develop the 1954-1956 Sportmax.

Over the years and using the molds of the original chassis, the complete motorcycle of this “Sportmax Prototype” was rebuilt.

During the restoration an old prototype 5-speed gearbox was installed (the sportmax eventually used a 4-speed to avoid reliability problems) and a light metal cylinder that aspired to compete in the 350cc category.

An electronic ignition from SACHSE in Bremen now offers reliable sparks for the two cores as the original was totally unusable.
