In the winter of 1956, Dean Allie, 15-year-old, It walked with its 251-OSL NSU over the frozen lake, Big Swan Lake, in Minnesota. The bike had been a gift from his father at Christmas, an 18-year-old young Dean enjoyed until the ice that went broke. Dean wore a leather jacket and this probably saved you life because as a vest made life-saving. The bike sank in Lake unable to do anything.
The following summer tried to rescue the bike, but it was totally impossible. The event fell into oblivion until a couple of months ago a professional fisherman in the area took off with their networks something that weighed more than the usual old car wheels, engines or buffalo skulls out-borda. The fishing was nothing less than The NSU lost by Dean for almost 56 years.
The bike was evidently quite corroded after so long under water. The photos can be seen that the left was that supported on the bed of the Lake and therefore is the most damaged. But there are curious, as the wheels still contain air or the seat and tank, made in red plastic backing seemed almost new. The bike is weighed to its legitimate owner, who still lives near the place with 71 years.
Dean was very surprised by the finding, but gave the bike to a friend of the fisherman, who is a collector, and is committed to show the bike as is, in its Museum. No doubt the bike is better than which Nostromo taught us sunk with the SS Thistlegorm in the Red Sea. More than anything because fresh water is less corrosive than salt. And it is also slightly better than the Harley Davidson that the Tsunami brought to Canada from Japan.
Curious story that comes to remember that there are still many “treasures” hidden under the water there. So prepare your goggles diving, tube and fins that this summer we’re going fishing for a bike instead of fish.
