Batavus Whippet

The Whippet was delivered as a luxe version of the supersport versions and was came with a two- or three-speed JLO engine.

Pecxel had a '63 Whippet with a three speed box known as the JLO-Piano. It's one of the earliest Whippets, and also the most desirable, not least for its colour scheme. It came in red/gold, dark-blue/gold and white/candy-pink.

Nice details are the two high exhaust pipes and panther pattern dual seat.
