more pics. I have a tomos estoril pipe coming friday and a 28 front sprocket. The conversion uses all stock tomos parts with my plates and you only drill two holes.

what kind of engine should i keep an eye out for?

Re: 1980 Batavus starflight engine swap

Send me a PM, I am the person to talk to in regards to doing anything to a batavus. I would recommend a Minarelli v1. All you have to do to swap it out is notch the frame slightly and drill 1 hole... done.

N. C. the motor pictured is a Laura M48.

HS50 is the name of a model of Batavus moped.

The other motor used on Batavus Regency models was the Laura M56.

It is a two stroke that will take 1:25 to 1:40 two-stroke oil to gas.

You are missing the cover on the clutch and the Encawi Carb, the intake and probably the reed block.

You should look at the numbers on the Encawi carb to see if it is a 20 , 25 mph or 30 mph version (or there may be a decal on the frame, nor neck stamp or motor), if you have those set outside of the picture frame.

The tomos a35, a55 seemed to work for the other guy.. with a custom frame mount bracket. (edited)

Re: 1980 Batavus starflight engine swap

I know ots old thread but did anyone get a file for the brackets or have any?

Re: 1980 Batavus starflight engine swap

I doubt it. But you have great reference material here for the mounts with the photos. It's gonna be just as hard to build with or without the templates. Your gonna have to change gearing , mounts, electrics, and chop up the frame to remove the pedal shaft n pulley. Space and source new sprockets. Etc

If you have a batavus I'd reccomend keeping the og engine. They are pretty nice, just require extra thinking to hop up

Re: 1980 Batavus starflight engine swap

That is the plan to get it going stock..its been rebuilt but not running... I just am seeing what the options are out there for a winter project.
