Batavus speed

I got my speedometer working for the first time since i bought the bike last fall. I was pretty suprised that i could get 30mph on flat no problem (also in a short distance). I know i've gone faster than that on some of the straight long roads around town. Is this normal speed for a Batavus? i assumed it would be slower. I haven't gotten around to cleaning the exhaust or anything yet to try and speed it up.

Hi! I'm told they had 3 different speed models(20,25,and 30 mph)and it sounds like you hit the jackpot! If it's doing that well I wouldn't make ANY irreversible changes.BYE!

Re: Batavus speed

Yeah, 30 mph sounds pretty good to me.

Re: Batavus speed

i've got a Batavus Bingo and after changing the timing it seems it goes a bit faster than 30 but my speedometer doesn't work so.
