I couldn't find any identifying markings anywhere on the bike except for the carb which is a encarwi. It looks like some parts were made in Germany, so maybe its a German bike? Any help is appreciated!
That reallllly looks like an italjet kitkat, but not quite. Almost looks like a Laura M48 motor but that clutch setup isn't typical for an M48
Oh wow it does look very similar to a kitkat but don't think thats it. For the engine, the closest I think I got is it might be a batavus m48 engine.
I think it is a kitkat where somebody changed the tank to make room for that basket and swapped the original engine for whatever that is.
There is a lot of unused brackets on that frame if you look closely.
Cool project to make it original again
Woah that's crazy, definitely looks like an italjet swapped for an m48 with a lot of custom fab.

The seat post is different. So are the fenders, and the frame in general. At the very least it's definitely not a 1968-1969 KitKat
There's a lot of weirdness going on, but I've owned a kit kat and that front end is absolutely 100% italjet. I'm in the kit-kat-with-lots-of-custom-fab camp on this one.
The welding gives away that it was something modified at home and not the work of a manufacturer. The tabs all along the sides make me thing it had panels completely enclosing both sides of the frame.
Yeah I don't know much about the italjet but that weird boat nose thing is super distinctive, seems like a dead give away.
Yes there are side panels that go on each side. I seem to have lost the pictures so I'll see if I can get some more tomorrow .
