I believe it was fitted into a bike called a Hercules made by DKW back in the 70s.

I have to admit that I forgot about the DKW (Sachs) Hercules Wankel bike.

I found this picture online of the DKW.



I could not find a modern picture of the NSU Wankel, But I did find this ad to buy a magazine article



I do not know were that conversion got that engine, I cannot find any production information on the NSU Wankel.

I do not know what happened to the bike divisions of DKW and NSU when they were combined into the Audi group, But if you look at the two engines they are very similar to each other.

Looks like a good mystery to me

NSU of course built a rotary engined car called the Ro80. It was so unreliable (rotor tip problems) that the warranty claims killed off the company and it came under the VAG banner. The Wankel is a wonderful engine, just so long as someone can make it work properly.
