 Moped Review.  The Motor Cycle, 15 November 1956.   [Moped Review 1956.]


A rear-sprung version of the Norman Nippy designated S is now available in addition to the solid

frame model R introduced a year ago. The newcomer has plunger-type rear suspension but in all

other respects is similar.

The smoothly styled spine-type frame embodies a one-gallon petrol tank. Front springing is by a

leading-link fork. Tyre sire is 2.00 x 23 in and both mudguards are well valanced. Motive power is

provided by a German Sachs 47 c.c. two-stroke in unit with a two-speed, twistgrip-controlled gear box.

Choice of finish includes burgundy, two-tone blue, or sage green and burgundy.



R, £69 19s 6d;

S, £71 19s 6d.

ULKONÄÖLTÄÄN Norman Nippy on mopediksi harvinaisen siro ja linjakas, mikä viehättää varsinkin naisostajia. Moottori on osittain koteloitu, joten vaatteiden likaantumisesta ei ole pelkoa.
