Before and after of my Batavus Starflite

Replaced the top end and clutch and exhaust and carb off a parts bike I scored for super cheap. Lots of other little replacement parts. Painted with duplicolor engine enamel.

It runs pretty well. 30mph version that probably maxes out around there on flat ground and is a bit slow in the low end. Idles perfectly.

To give an idea of cost to hopefully motivate others in their restoration efforts.... bought the bike for 360. Parts bike was 80. Between the cost of the bikes and paint and all of the other little parts probably $600-650 total. And a lot of time. I started out as a total total novices and still consider myself to be.

Thanks for everyone that responded to my questions along the way!
