1965 Lube-NSU Condor 150cc
Is there anybody who has parts for this bike?
I would like to do a rebuild...or at least find a complete motor.
I found one that seems alright, but is missing a piston.
Thanks for any help.

Spanish Bike foto correction
Howdy Sheldon, I wrote you a while back and sent you a picture of an Izaro that you have posted on your LUBE web page. I wanted you to know that it is not a LUBE Yack as the foto says but an LUBE Izaro which is similar to the Condor 150cc that you have a illustrated a little further down. I will send you a foto of my Yack when she is together soon.  Thanks for all the work you put into this great resource. Sorry for the confusion about the picture mislabeling.
Sincerely, Miguel Balaguero.

Howdy, I have an copy of the RENN Instruction Manual from 1961.  I'm the process of translating as well as information provided by Francisco Herreros in his Enciclopedia de la Moto Espanola. 20.000 units were exported from Spain around 1965. Anyone know who the importer was? I own a Yack and Izaro.

Hi: I just picked up a LUBE model Yack in fairly complete condition. I had one of these back in 1970 and it was in perfect condition. Does anyone know of any parts or info sources for this unusual bike? I would very much like to restore it as best as possible. Also does anyone know who built the motor and where specs on it could be found? Any info on this bike would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, El Perry -- JMofNBCo at aoldot com

Hi, I'm a lube model D25 owner. Lube motorcycles were made at Bilbao, Spain by Luis Bejarano Murga.

The first model was the A25 over the final of the fourties. The LUBE CONDOR is over the sixties. But for good information go to CLUB LUBE on and contact with Juan Marti, he is my friend and the great specialists on this brand in Spain.
