Magneet Mopeds

A Brief History of the Marque
Rijwielen- en Motorenfabriek NV of Amsterdam began bicycle production in 1922. Their first mopeds appeared around 1952 using initially Husqvarna and then Sachs engines. A popular model of the 1960s was the Cheetah, and they were early adopters of the disc brake. Production ceased in the early 1970s. The bicycle division had been sold to Batavus in 1969, so it is possible that the last of the mopeds were built there also.
