Batavus Laura M-48 Complete Engine Needed

Just picked up a new winter project, a 1977 Batavus HS50. Looks to be complete except for an engine. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I think there's an engine on ebay right now.

I got a 77 Bat HS50 this last summer in about the same shape as yours, maybe a little worse. They're great bikes but not terribly fast. The wheels are a little undersized compared to others but that lowers your center of gravity making it easier to handle and lean into turns. Great body design too.

I'll probably post pics next week of mine.

hey man

i had an angel moped that i am parting out. the engine

looks to be an exact copy of the laura 48 engine...the only

thing different is the starting system. same reed valve, different carb(mikuni) same big aluminim sprocket.

i just rebuilt the engine ...new seals, bearings still good.

if you think you can use it let me know....also have

most of the bike if you need other parts.

Hi Leo,

Just sent you a private e-mail. Thanks for responding.

I told you ebay has one-

You'll probably get a good deal on it, doesn't look like too much interest...

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the heads-up. I will add it to my watch list.
