FS: 1978 Batavus Hs50

Chance Campbell /

1978 Batavus HS50. $650 Its a pretty clean example with great patina. 50cc 25mph engine. I've rebuilt just about the whole bike so it's in good condition. Everything was done with New Old Stock parts or current replacements so it's as original as you can get. I also have 2 boxes of spare and original parts to go with it.

Pros:

-Rebuilt Engine(25mph version)

-Replaced wear parts (seals, chain, belt, clutch plate)

-Rebuit magneto and rewired most of the bike

-Rebuilt controls

-New tires and tubes

-New petcock, fuel line, and refurbished carburetor

-Two boxes of spare parts

Cons:

- The accelerator cable has limited pull so I've struggled to get it to good power bands

-Accelerator cable sometimes slips out of carburetor slide

-Not sure of actual mileage due to engine swap

Just ask and I'll answer any questions or send more pics.

Hey do you happen to have the original kill switch ( round metal )

Also looking for a original headlight bucket with speedometer glass. Mine has a crack glass and some gauges in it. Mine is a 1977

He's outside of Columbus

Update

Chance Campbell /

Its, still available. Sold the parts separate already. Don't know what I was thinking when I wrote about "power bands", but basically the accelerator cable needs modified to give the accelerator a full range of motion.
