And this has something to do with model engineering or am I missing something important?
This is also ignoring the fact that only a limited age range of members will understand "NSU Quickly".

Yes, Brian ... You are missing something important
Dave is asking for ideas
Model Engineering is a 'broad church' and it is almost certain that someone here will have knowledge of buying or making decals for [whatever].
There is also substantial interest in motorcycles, amongst forum members.

I suppose the NSU owners club is an obvious place to start, I had a Quick 50 in my youth, wish I still had it, they were rare then.

Seem to be quite a few on ebay.de
There seem to be some variations, so maybe have a browse and see if they have the exact style that you are looking for?

British Two Stroke club of which I am a member has a section for auto cycles, and I think NSU comes under that, they will have a marque specialist for NSU. In the current club magazine there is an article about a member who makes rubber foot rests etc to a pattern. Looking in the Mag I see an advert for Classic Transfers 01454 260596. www.classictransfers.co.uk. John

Wouldn't have raised an eyebrow if posted in the "Vehicle Restoration" or "Related Hobbies" sections. Dave, post a photo so some of us can reminicse. I would love to own a Supermax.
(Have I spelt "reminicse" correctly?)

Welcome to the forum Dave Corkish, ignore the Comments from Brian he is in a small minority, the larger group of forum users are often friendly and helpful. I can't help with your enquiry but I hope that you do eventually find the information you are looking for.

It's all about scale & self-identity.
If he's a Model Engineer and it's happening in his Workshop, then he's in the right place.

I think if you have an image it could probably be printed onto vinyl wrapping type material - self adhesive, very durable, worth contacting some vinyl/sign companies.

I’m like Martin, I don’t make models but I have restored some. All been to the scale of 12” to the foot so far.

I for one certainly remember the NSU Quickly, the things were ubiquitous, you saw them everywhere. They were , well-made and extremely reliable, but at that time you would have needed considerable foresight to see that nearly 60 years later they would become collectors items.
Thanks to the OP for saving this piece of history for us all to enjoy

Hi Dave, One idea for your transfers would be, if you can create your own artwork (designs) would be to output them onto “ Colour Laser Printer Decal Paper” (search Google) and output them on a colour laser printer. Ink jet papers would be unsuitable as the inks are too fugitive.
This process could also be possibly used for clock and instrument faces and mounting onto litho plate material, the backgrounds of which could be achieved with either oil or water based paints for the background.

Quickly, Capitanos, Capri, Norman Nippy, Raleigh Runabout, Phillips Panda, etc etc, worked on all of them in the 1960s. If you struggle for parts try the Buzzin Club. Lot of specialist suppliers in their magazine, but if you've restored it I suspect you may be a member already.
