1960 1960 nsu supermax nsu supermax 1960 Stainless rims and spokes and a recent new silencer. developed from the earlier max and special max models, the supermax was the final development of the very unorthodox ultramax valve gear system designed by albert roder. the drive to the overhead valve gear was by long connecting rods housed in a tunnell cast on the left of the cylinder barrel. at their ends, these rods carried eye encircling counter-balanced eccentric discs connected to the half-time pinion and overhead camshaft. as the engine revolved, so the eccentrics imparted a reciprocating motion which was transferred to the valve gear. hairpin valve springs were used and the entire mechanism was enclosed.
