NOS is an acronym for "new old stock", meaning unused original parts that are no longer being manufactured, often in their original box. These parts generally show no signs of use or wear but may have some shop wear, so one may want to inquire about the exact condition before purchase.

NOS parts are usually in higher demand and cost more than replacement reproduction parts. Those restoring a moped to its original condition will find them especially desirable.
