FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Another "barn find" I don't have time for. I have the original bill of sale, $680! Several parts missing. However, I did get this M56 to turn over and spark by hardwiring. Stator is in decent shape. Motor covers are missing. With only 700+ miles on the motor, it should be pretty decent. Half the carb is gone. Flipup seat is OK with no tears, just loose in the front. Rims are somewhat rusty but roll fine. Headlight and bucket seem fine with light rust. Speedo is broke. Any questions, fire away, I am new to this parting out shit.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Jon, I see you're from grand rapids. Have you ever owned any JAWAs?

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

I think the pictures show the footrest, and the only chain guard is the one by the rear wheel.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Lol. Yeah, bought it for $10 or $20 and gave it away. My friend still has it (I think) if you need parts.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Do you have the tail light, flywheel covers, right side engine cover and/or speedo cable? I am willing to trade these things to you for US dollars.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Tail light yes, everything else you mentioned, no. $5 plus shipping for the tail light.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Shipped today.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

thanks man!

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

I believe we have a deal sir. E-mail me (foryouillbeforgettingme@hotmail.com) the paypal info.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Never ran it. It's headed for Minnesota right now.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Jon,

How are the tires and tubes on the bike Are they 2.25x16 or 2.00 x 16? If they hold air, I might be interested in them if you are will to sell them (and they are not cracked like crazy/dry rotted).

Also do you have the petcock? What shape is that in if you have it?

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

no go?

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

I want to buy that tail light from you sir. foryouillbeforgettingme@hotmail.com Send me info on how to pay you.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

They hold air, and that's about it. They're nothing special. If you get to Grand Rapids and want for $5, (tubes and tires) give me a holler. No tank or petcock.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

Let me see what kind of shape it's in... I think it's fine, a couple locals have asked about it also.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

If it is a deal breaker, all i really need is the red cover and the screws to hold it on. I need it pretty badly dude.

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite

I really need that taillight man, whats the good word?

Re: FS: Parting out '78 Batavus Starflite
