Mel's 50% e-stay

You're looking at a Batavus HunterPro

Batavus' top end mountainbike offering for 1992. The driveside chainstay is 'elevated', the other side is conventional. Half-e-stay, like the RM Suzi Q was too for example. Batavus built the fine Professional series roadbikes in house in a speciality frame shop, but as that was all brazing with lugs, I would think this tig'ed frame was built somewhere else. This unlike Gazelle's top end mountainbike offering, the Champion Mondial ATB. That was like all other Champy's built in Dieren.

For ultimate shifting and braking performance the HunterPro came specced with full XTR m900. The bars and post are carbon, or carbon laminated aluminium to be more precise. The tyres with the reflector strip are not original of course.



50% e-stay >>>

Wow Melvin, never seen a bike with such a 50% e-stay. It's a real beauty! Looks almost new, did u get this one recently or 'back in the day'?

Mark,

26".

I bought it NOS from the little Zieleman shop a couple years ago. Collected it when visiting AŽdam with a friend. Remember sitting in a restaurant with the frame on the window-ledge. Also remember drunk English asking me after 'my bike' in the pub. Stoned school youth considered me and my bike an attraction on Amsterdam Central Station.

Pretty indeed and there seems to be another small one on ebay as well which looks to be a 80's frame. Local pick up only unfortunatly.

^ Those are both my size! I am realizing that my taste in vintage bikes is more classic 70s so the one in LA is unfortunately not that appealing. The 52cm one on marktplaats is more like it--MUCH more, but expected price (eu 400) seems high, especially considering the components. I can't justify to myself (let alone my wife!) taking the trouble (and risk) of attempting to buy it, get it shipped, etc. Or enlisting the help of one of my Dutch colleagues here to expedite! But maybe for someone that bike will look like a bargain. The partial chrome is very classic, for sure. If the two bikes were in the opposite places I would have been bargaining with the guy in LA from the first few hours the bike was listed, as it appeared on my eBay radar that morning.

It worked! Just needed to crop a bit... I think it's from the mid eighties, considering the chrome and panto's. Also the lugs have the Z carved in. Sorry for the awful nds-pic btw, I wasn't thinking straight after seeing such a nice bike between all the modern alu & cf.

This red one is pretty except for the fork maybe I am a fan of those 80,s Zielemans but I agree with Wouter that this little blue one is a cool gem.

There's under a month to go, before the youngest local C&V-ride takes place: http://www.tourdhistorique.nl/ Anyone joining in? I already signed up at Stalen Ros last march, which scored me a special beer called 'KoersBier'. It ended up breaking the bottleneck in my fully packed with freshly purchased C&V-goodies backpack. Lucky for me the bottle was upright, so little harm done to the precious (which included a nos Gazelle cardigan from the late 70's/early eighties). The revenue I believe will go to charity btw and the distance of choice will be either 35 or 80 km.
