with apologies to Ogden Nash...
250 OSL (Obergestueurt Sport Luxus), had to look that up !Pushrod enclosed OHV, and the doohickeys on the sides of the head areexcentrics for setting the valves' clearances, pretty smart !
Thanks! All the OSLs I could find had girder front ends. Something weird going on with this telescopic setup...
The forks look to be NSU but later vintage.The source of my wisdom: http://zhumoristenouveau.eklablog.com/nsu-251-osl-notre-gold-star-a127291844
if it was my bike I would make a long seat, similar to what's on this bike- http://databikes.com/imgs/a/d/w/d/x/nsu__500_consul_consul_genuine_500_1953_1_lgw.jpg sew a seat cover using distressed faux leather like this-https://www.onlinefabricstore.com/mitchell-crazy-horse-grey-faux-leather-fabric-.htm install a set of vintage mufflers with appropriate patina. hand buff and wax entire bike by hand till satisfied. leave off the lights and remove the side mount headlight ears. display on a valued rug as permanent safekeeping preservation and display. that would be great.
I agree, but would put a single saddle on it. Then I'd ride it and leave it out front of local coffee shops :-)
I'm with G. Rug, shmug, I wanna ride it.If I was to put a dual seat on it, only leopardskin would do.
