Help me identifying this "Mexican Low-rider" look Batavus bike model

I just bought this 3 gears Batavus bike to my girlfriend on the flee market. Can you help me out with the name of the model?

I spent a fair amount of time at the Batavus site and couldn't come up with a match. I'd send Batavus an e-mail and ask them.

With the cottered cranks, I suspect it is an older model. You may want to wander over to "Classic & Vintage" to see if anyone there has any information. If the rear hub is a Sturmey-Archer, it may have a date code that would help to identify the timeframe.
