Batavus Racer

Hi folks,

I started this project in 2011, but put it aside after the welding and sandblasting was done...
This Build Off is a good reason to pick it up again, and finish it 8)

The bike is a Batavus Super Sport from the late '40s.
I will change it from "Gents bike" into a racer.

Welcome to RRB and the Build Off from across the pond. Great to add another international player to the mix.

That frame is freaking awesome!!!! I love the multi-tubes and how the curves and angles just work together.
You have my attention!

Good luck
 
Thanks!

Here's a mock up.
The seat is just for display, it's to far gone :-(
But, I allready found a Brooks competition in blach with copper nails! Yeahaa
I found a Mayor Tailor handlebar (reproduction), the one in the pic is just to see how low handlebars look like.
Realy happy about this combo...

Such a cool frame and the pinstripe green is a great color! I have a old BMC twin bar kids side walk bike that this frame reminds me of.
