En 1929, la firme allemande NSU réussit à recruter l'ingénieur Walter Moore alors chez Norton. Moore avait été le responsable de la création de la première moto Norton à arbre à cames en tête, la CSI, et il n'est donc pas étonnant d'avoir vu apparaître peu de temps après une NSU Super Sport à 1 ACT de style ... très Norton. En 1932, NSU introduisit la série « O » conçue par Moore, des monocylindres à soupapes en tête qui allaient former la base de la production jusqu'au milieu des années 1930 en commençant pas la 350 OS de 1932. Les 201 OSL de198 cm3 et 251 OSL de 241 cm3 suivirent en 1933. Cette belle NSU 251 OSL Sport restaurée est décrite par le vendeur comme étant en bon état général et la machine est offerte avec ses documents d'immatriculation autrichiens et son contrôle technique.

    In 1929, the German company NSU succeeded in recruiting designer Walter Moore from Norton. Moore had been responsible for Norton's first successful overhead-camshaft machine, the CS1, so it came as no surprise when distinctly Norton-esque 'cammy' NSU Super Sport models appeared a short time later. In 1932 NSU introduced the Moore-designed 'O' series of overhead-valve singles, which would form the mainstay of production throughout the mid 1930s, commencing with the 350 OS in 1932. 198cc 201 OSL and 241cc 251 OSL models followed in 1933. This beautiful NSU 251 OSL Sport has been restored and is described by the vendor as in generally good condition. The machine is offered with Austrian registration papers and technical inspection.
