    Batavus Gogo 1977
    Hallo wat is de tankinhoud en het verbruik van deze brommer. Ik hoor het graag van u.
    Hello what is the tank capacity and consumption of this moped. Please let me know.
    Rob van Druten

      Apparently the Bingo and Gogo are very similar. The Bingo page gives tank capacity. Fuel economy would depend on the engine, carburettor and restrictions, if any. Ed.

    Batavus 1978 Starflite HS
    Good afternoon. I recently acquired the moped and it seems that the start lever and cable are gone on left handle. I've ordered new ones but would like to see images of both handles/levers/brakes/clutch/choke and all the cables and where they connect. Looks like someone played with the brakes, etc, and not sure what goes with what. The right handle has what looks like the brake but it goes to the clutch? Please send photos if you can. Much appreciated.

    Dear Batavus experts,
    I'm really glad to have found your page. Excellent research and overview over Batavus motorbikes. I've recently bought a Batavus M20 from 1977 in the Netherlands and would now like to ride it in Germany. However, I bought it without papers so that I'm in desperate search of a (original or copy, doesn't matter) operating licence. I can proof a clearance certificate as well, if necessary. I've already enquired both Batavus NL as well as their headquarter in Germany, without success. Thus, I have high hopes in you being able to provide me with more info or, even better, with an operating licence.
    Vehicle identification number: NLR0001 633110
    I'm very much looking forward to your reply. Thanks a lot and best regards,
    Tobias Heck

    1980 Batavus
    Looking for the Starflite version

    • Could you expand the question please?

    Yes. I am looking to buy a vintage moped. I had the Red Starflite, 1980. Do you sell Batavus mopeds? It doesn’t have to be red or the exact model. Thanks for responding.

    • No, sorry, we don't sell anything. This site provides information only, without charge. Ed.

    Thank you.
    I just purchased a 1980 Batavus Starflite. Do you know where I could find original red paint and stickers? Thanks

    • As you can see from the Starflite page there are a number of quite different decals used on the model. Best bet would be to contact a retailer, several of which are listed in the decals & stickers section of this site. As for the paintwork, a marque specialist on one of the moped forums may be able to help.

    Mopeds were something new in Indianapolis. It was legal to ride one on the street if you were 15 y/o. One had to be 16 to drive a car or motorcycle. There was a Batavus dealer and I took my dad there to look at them. I preferred the Mobat as it looked more like a motorcycle. My dad surprised me on my 15th birthday with the 1977 Batavus VA Bronco though. He thought it looked more comfortable to ride. Yeah, for an old man! I was very happy though. I think it cost $500. It usually only went 20-25 mph. I'd trail my friends all over on it. Then the next year, they all got Garelli mopeds that looked more like motorcycles and went 35 mph!

    Batavus Bingo V
    I own a red Batavus Bingo V moped from the early to late 1970's. I recently visited your website to find some information about this moped but I noticed that you don't have a lot. I know that this moped has a Laura M48-02 carburated engine, the manual that comes with the moped says it has a 40MPH top speed. My testing confirmed this. This moped also came in different models, since some have rear shocks, and mine does not. The Batavus Bingo also has a 3.5 litre gas tank installed from the factory. The fuel is a 1:25 ratio mixture with gasoline and two-stroke motor oil. Please don't hesitate to email me for more information about this moped.

    Thank you,
    Windsor, Ontario, Canada

    This information added to the Batavus Bingo page.

    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

    Hi; nice site this is; I have info on Batavus Villiers 197cc. Motorcycle was manufactured after the war, Story is the frames were ready but they had to wait untill import restrictions were lifted after the war so engines were later installed. I will add one photo(to begin with)from an old book and a real one of my bike. I am on a constant lookout for finding a folder though! I will also send you photo's when the projects is finished (approx this/next year)

    tagging Batuvus hs50 moped
    I have a 1977 batavus hs50 moped. I live in Kansas. They are telling me that I have to tag the moped to ride in on the street. They say in order to tag it, i have to have a title or mso. I got this from my mother who bought it in California. She rode it while she lived there as well as Missouri when she lived there. Otherwise, it hasn't been ridden for about 20 years. She didn't have to tag it in either place. Can you tell me what to do from here? I am at a loss. Thanks. Christi

    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

    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 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 have a few connections in amsterdam and if i find any info i'll let you know. All i know is that they are made in Holland and Batavus only makes bikes know. -- later -- bstone -- bstone at

    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 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

    I have a Batavus that is missing a motor it is red, white, swooping wide front fender, on the tank it has trophies and big badges on the side. The pipe is a high pipe scrambler style. I need information on parts, books, type engines, and where to find the year model on the bike. Any information would help. The bike has a key switch in the right handle grip, it is a thumb throttle, with a white face speedometer, in a shapely shell. -- Scott Garrison -- Macon, GA, U.S.A. -- garrisonboys at mindspringdot 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 [404]
    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.
