Contents • • • • • • Batavus Intercycle Corporation was the leading manufacturer of bicycles and in Holland during the 1970s. During its most productive years, the company’s 350,000 sq. Herereveen, Holland plant employed 700 craftsmen to produce 70,000 Batavus mopeds and 250,000 bicycles a year. During this time the Batavus was exporting 55% of its production with the remainder going to Holland which had more than two million mopeds on the roads as of 1977.
Origins Batavus originated in 1904, when Andries Gasstra opened a shop in Heereveen, selling clocks, watches and sewing machines. Bicycles were soon added to the catalogue as two-wheeled transport gained in popularity, and the original business was discontinued when Gastra acquired the sole Dutch representation for the German bicycle, Presto. He later started selling bicycles under his own brand name, Batavus. Bicycle with a motor During the 1930’s, Batavus began making three-wheeled transport bicycles equipping them with an a few years later. At the same time they produced their first motorcycles. By 1940, when Holland was invaded, Batavus employed some 120 people. Post-War, the company made rapid strides and a new project which had started out as a bicycle with a motor was soon developed into a functionally designed motorized two-wheeler, with front and rear-wheel suspension for riding comfort and a creditable performance.
Long-distance rides on Batavus machines were taken through the United States, and to places like Morocco, Alexandria and Baghdad, to help popularize the name outside Holland. Post-war growth and expansion By 1954, the company was operating from an assortment of buildings, producing a variety of machines, but in 1956, just 52 years after Andries Gasstra opened his shop, a new factory was opened in the industrial park in Heerenveen.

Further extensions and developments became necessary and today the company employs about 650 people in a modern factory which uses advanced design and manufacturing techniques. After the new premises were opened the company continued primarily to be a bicycle manufacturer and benefited from the growing demand for bicycles, not only in Holland, but all over the world. However, in 1969, Batavus acquired the bicycle and motorcycle production of another Dutch company, Magneet, and in the following year took over an amalgamation of three famous three-wheeler factories in Germany. Although their sales of motorised two-wheelers were subjected to increasing fluctuation, with various model and style changes, there was steady growth every year.
World-wide distribution In 1970, Batavus joined the Dutch Laura industrial group, which includes Motoren, and were used on all Batavus mopeds in the UK, except the powered sports machine, the Mk 4S. First imports to the UK were in 1973, with the setting up of Harglo Ltd. By two former BSA/Triumph executives, Wilf Harrision and Peter Glover.
