Hello Pigdog. What sort of engine do you have in your Nippy? Over the years Normans used 3 different makes of engines in the Nippy:- Villiers, Mival and Sachs. Some Sachs parts are available new but Mival bits seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth although Villiers parts are very easy to get hold of from a firm called Villiers Spares. I converted my Nippy from a Mival engine to a Villiers engine I found on 'flea bay', the mountings were slightly different and so was the exhaust so it was not a straight swap.If you have a Villiers engine then workshop manuals for this 3K engine do come up on e-bay. Transfers for the Norman name on the fuel tank are available from the Vintage Motorcycle club.
Yesterday I took my B1S,150 ccs Norman out for the first ride of the year, it had not been started since September but went on the second kick and did 25 miles without any problems, I didn't even have to pump up the tyres and although it only does about 35 to 40 mph it is a very nice ride around the lanes.
Cheers,Paul

Hi Pigdog The man to contact for parts (other than spares for Villiers engines) is Mark Daniels at Mopedland. Unfortunately he is on holiday until 13 April but you will find him very helpful. www.mopedland.ukfsn.org/spares.htlm.
