I have cut my stable down to one bike in hopes to make room for a roadie.
Batavus Bottom Bracket
I am helping/teaching a friend to overhaul his bike which is a Batavus Monte Carlo (No idea on the date). My question to all the Batavus experts is: What is the Bottom Bracket threading? I don't want to remove the cotters and find that I don't have a corresponding bottom bracket to replace it with. Thank you for your help and information.
Not sure what your BB is like but there was a thread several years ago concerning a rather unique Batavus BB. Maybe this info would apply to your bike? Anyhow, it also states that the Batavus staff is very responsive so dropping them a line might be in order as well? Batavus Winner + removing BB

I had a '75 Batavus Tour de l'Europe way way back when, and my memory is that it took a British BB. Mine was from the year they switched over to a Sugino Maxy 3-pin crankset. It was the same bike but with QR, large-flange hubs and chrome fork socks.
