Brand Specific Links

Carabela

Jawamoped.com

This is a website with information for Jawa mopeds.

Kinetic

This is the main company. To get to the bikes, click Group Companies, then click Kinetic Engineering Ltd. To go directly, click here. Very recently, Kinetic 2 Wheelers has become Mahindra 2 Wheelers. I noticed this change as I was posting this link. Same bikes, though.

Kreidler

This is the new company that bought out the valuable Kreidler brand name. All vehicles are now produced in far east, no mopeds but poor scooters and bicycles. When the production at Kreidler / Kornwestheim filed for bankruptcy in 1982, the plant was sold. Today you can find a mix of flat housings and small office buildings on the area.

Kymco

Kymco's corporate website, seemingly not really into mopeds, but have some pretty hot 50cc scooters. Good if you are looking for some specs on your bike.

NSU-Quickly.net

A homepage all about the NSU Quickly. The site helps people restore their NSU mopeds and get them back on the streets. There is a forum there where technical issues are discussed and lots of technical information with detailed dimensions of a huge variety of parts. Although the site is written in German, one of the forums is for English speakers. The administrator of the NSU-Quickly.net is User:Nsumopedfahrer.
