Eeh, batavi don't really play nice with overbore kits without some serious tweaking. But if you're just looking for replacement bits, ebay is usually a good start. Are you looking for performance mods? You can hack/weld an expansion pipe on fairly easily (hint, start with a tomos pipe), and there are a few carb/intake kits floating around. But that Laura is a fickle lady.

That Bat on your profile is CLEAN man would leave it alone personally. Find a beater on craigslist and work with that, Bats don't have the after market of other peds. Try Treatland.tv and 1977mopeds.com for some mods but there really isn't much. Looked for my Friend and his raty old Bat. Just my 2 cents but to each their own man.

If you look in the wiki and google online you will find plenty of specific hints on tweaking a batavus m48. It depends on your skills and wallet.

If it was me I would do mild mods which might include a new intake and carb

and a pipe...which should not change the stock look too much.

If you wanted a fast moped you should have picked a model where you can get bolt on kits and performance parts.

Another thing you could do is shave the head to increase compression. Here's some pics of one that has had .08" taken off, compared to the stock head on the right:

This website explains how he did it

but since I doubt you have a lathe and machining tools, I would suggest you have a machine shop do it for you. Let them know that the engine uses no head gasket, so the surface must be smooth.
