Batavus 1976 moped
Hello, I own a red 1976 batavus moped that needs a carb rebuild, new tires, and a new gas line but otherwise in perfect condition (it has been garage kept since 1976) with original everything. Could you tell me how much it is worth approximately? I'm pretty clueless as to where to find information on it or what to do with it. Should I restore it and sell it, sell it as is, or restore it and keep it? Thank you so much for your help, Elise Hamlin

I got two Batavus City there ok for restoration they are same look a like it's the model with the little wheels colored purple and running 25 km/h.

Hi my names Melissa and I have a problem I need help with. I own a Batavus VA and it was running fine last fall, but I had it stored all winter and now its not firing. I've tried everything to try and fix it. I got frustrated and didn't try to fix it again for a few wks then it wouldn't pedal. Once I got it pedaling again I hear a metal to metal sound. Can anyone tell me what may be causing the problem? -- Thanks -- my email is pootycat at hotmaildot com

I've got a 1974 HS-50 (with original manual) I picked up for $20 from a friend. It has not been used in at least 5 years, but was put away clean, and was in running condition when stored. It has a strong spark, air, and fuel getting to the cylinder, but it will not catch. If I give it a quick shot of "quick start" spray I can feel it "burp" when I try to start it. I'm pretty sure that once it catches it will burn off any varnish or carbon and run well after that. If there are ANY suggestions on a direction I can go with this, I would LOVE to hear them. I dearly want to get this "HOG" running. Thank you in advance. -- Richard -- richardbodner at homedot com

Hi everybody. I just bought a Batavus Bronco moped, from 1974. I'm a complete ignoramus when it comes to engines (or anything mechanical) and I'm having a hard time starting it. I don't think there's anything wrong with it... I just don't know what I'm doing. I can peddle it along just fine, but how do I get the motor going? If anybody has any suggestions, please email me!

I live in Holland. Batavus,Sparta and Gazelle do not make Mopeds anymore.. There are still engine parts available,but people must tell me the make of the engine (ILO,Sachs,Anker-Laura) and what type of engine it is.
They produced special models for USA,so type-names like "Regence" and so can't help...I never seen one in Holland.

Why is it so difficult for some people to look at the moped they bought, and then write in their mails not only that they bought a Batavus moped, but also what kind of Batavus....
Anyway, my question for all of you is this; Does someone own a Batavus Whippet, or does any of you guys have a photo, because I'm the very proud owner of a Whippet.
For more questions about Batavus, workshop manuals, or just for fun, mail to:

I'll try to mail a photo of my Whippet.....

From your web site, enjoyed the Batavus experience. I don't think they make motorcycles any more, but I owned one of their mopeds in the early 80s. At about the same time they produced a Sachs engined trail bike that was really rather good, but I think they are rare in Holland, much less so here in England. In the mid 70s they made an extremely quick 4 speed sports moped, and I want one bad. -- Peter Cain -- louise-paddy at madasafishdot com

I own a 1979 Batavus Regency HS moped. It's great. I put a lot of work into it, and did a lot of research on it. I find the best place to get parts is http://mopedwarehouse.com the moped warehouse. They're in NJ but they'll ship parts any where, and they're very helpful. Tell them I told you about them. Batavus mopeds were made in Holland, they no longer make mopeds, just bikes now. They made good mopeds though. -- Jason, NY -- Aero754 at aoldot com

I just purchased a Yellow 1978 Batavus moped in beautiful condition. I was looking for a Vespa Bravo, a Puch, or possibly, a Sachs, but the Batavus was so beautiful...so well-made, that I went against my original plans to purchase a German or Italian product. I don't know a thing about mopeds, but the Batavus nicest looking basic moped I've seen. I would like some advise about what is the "overall" opinion of Batavus mopeds? Are they considered a good make? I never heard of Batavus until I started looking for mopeds. The over-all feedback I get is that they are extremely well-made...but does that mean the engine, too? Is the engine as good as a German or Italian engine? Is it considered a "slow", "normal" or "fast" engine? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -Lou -- LASP952717 at aoldot com

Currently I am restoring a 1939 Batavus (Dutch) motorcycle with 125 cc ILO engine (MG125F)
Only pictures of this restoration are on my website http://www.brunssum.net/~gubbelsp 
I only use this website to communicate with vendors of parts I need.
The motorcycle was owned by my grandfather and he secured it for the German army during WWII. After keeping it 25 years in two wooden boxes, I started restoration two month ago.
