Sorry Harry Potter fans, this isn’t a post about Harry’s Nimbus broomstick, but rather an obscure Danish motorcycle manufacturer that ceased production before the 1960s. Which to the nerds here in TLCB office makes it a much more interesting subject.
This lovely Model Team recreation of one of Nimbus’s later variants comes from previous bloggee Henrik Jensen, who has appeared here before with another Nimbus build. Henrik built this one as a commissioned piece for motorcycle club, and there’s more to see at both Flickr and MOCpages via the links.
We’re back, and we hope you’re all having a throughly excellent Christmas! We’re kicking off that slightly awkward period between Christmas and New Year with this, Henrik Jensen‘s gorgeous classic Nimbus Type C motorcycle.
Producing from 1919 until 1960, Nimbus were a successful Danish motorbike manufacturer, providing bikes to the military, civil and public markets. This beautiful 1950s Type C is one of the last Nimbuses made, and Henrik’s Model Team recreation is one of the finest Lego bikes we’ve found this year.
You can check out all the images of the Type C at Henrik’s photostream – click the link above to take a look.
