Do you remember Travis Scott, the Nimbus Nut? Well, it looks like he’s been able to import yet another Nimbus to the United States, and this time it’s one of the rare Sport versions.
I’ve featured a few Nimbuses (Nimbi?) in the past, and each time I’ve noted that these bikes were quite technologically advanced for the day. The Nimbus is legendarily reliable – even today some people use them as daily commuters. For more information, check out this profile from the Nimbus Club USA, who estimate that there are about 200-250 of these bikes in the US. The Sport version was differentiated with an upswept exhaust and different pistons which allowed for a higher compression (5.7:1), raising horsepower from 18 to 22.
This example was given a “complete nuts and bolt restoration”, but you’ll need to contact Travis directly if you want more details than that. Find this Nimbus Sport for sale here on Craigslist in Guffey, Colorado for $16,000.
