Incredible Restoration for 1937 NSU OSL 251 Bike [Photo Gallery]
The OSL 251 is truly a revered machinery, as it was one of the "big-bore" motorcycles back in the day, and its design is one of the iconic vintage milestones.
As Lorenzo himself declares, it he felt it would be too much of a sin to let the old barn find rot into oblivion. So he got to work, tearing the old bike down nut and bolt. The engine got a complete overhauling, with new parts bearings and bushings and all, and a total revision of all the mechanical parts.
The engine was cleaned and polished, while the rest of the metal parts were sandblasted and repainted. Several pieces were beyond repair, but as the Fugar is a master blacksmith, they've been rebuilt to spec.
Taking a comparative look at the before and after photos, we must say the chrome job is simply breathtaking and each second FMW spend restoring this old NSU was well spent. It looks like true passion and a skilled worker can turn out incredible results. Great job, Lorenzo!
