Nimbus - The Prince of Danmark

The Nimbus is a fascinating mixture of eccentricities, but with bulletproof reliability, if it’s treated kindly...
Nimbus owners join a pretty exclusive club in the U.S.; fewer than 100 of the 14,215 manufactured have made it over here. The good news, however, is that two-thirds of Nimbuses made still exist worldwide, and about 4,500 are currently licensed. Factory manuals and 95% of spare parts are available through Internet suppliers—there are five Nimbus dealers in Denmark—though some 1930s electrical parts can be expensive.

So what do you get? The Nimbus is a fascinating mixture of eccentricities, but with bulletproof reliability if it’s treated kindly, according to Nimbus expert Allan Kløve Nyborg. Nyborg edits the Nimbus Tidende magazine for the 1,915 members of the largest association.

Nimbus was launched in 1919 by Fisker & Nielsen, which began manufacturing electric motors in 1906 and switched to vacuum cleaners in 1910. Peder Fisker thought he could improve on the 4-cylinder Belgian FN, and his son Anders followed in his footsteps. Their ideas were creative and simple—the strip-steel frame was riveted, so pieces could be replaced, and even the handlebars were made of boxed plate. Nimbus developed telescopic forks in 1933 and introduced hydraulic damping in 1939. Read More Here.
