Nimbus at the Ace Cafe

The Nimbus was a Danish motorcycle produced from 1919 to 1960 by Fisker and Nielsen of Copenhagen, Denmark, also manufacturers of "Nilfisk" brand vacuum cleaners (now Nilfisk-Advance). Two basic models were produced, both with a 750 cc four cylinder engine way before Honda started doing the famous CB750 Fours wich "revolutionized" the motorcycle industry.
Very simple and sturdy design with mechanical solutions that are still used in today's motorcycles, this is a bike that does make you sit and stare at it for a long time.  The guy who owns it said to me:" I also have an Exile Hot Rod that's coming in a van to meet me here..."  Wonderful...
