Lot Details
From a Prominent European Collection,
c.1956 Eysink Renata 50cc Model B Tandem Moped
Frame no. 75928
Engine no. 858762
Founded at Amersfoort in the Netherlands in the late 1890s, Eysink made bicycles, cars and motorcycles until 1920 – concentrating on only motorcycles thereafter. The firm used proprietary engines for its machines, sourced from major British and Continental producers, as well as power units of its own design and manufacture. In pre-war days Eysink offered a comprehensive range of machines including large-capacity v-twins and racing models, while after WW2 most of its products were powered by Villiers engines. Throughout the late 1940s, the firm was active on the racetrack, the highlights of its competition record being 1st place finishes in the 125cc class of the Dutch TT in 1946 and 1948. Tandem mopeds featured in the range from 1952, marketed as 'Renata' at first and later under the 'Eysink' name. Three versions were offered: Model A with Berini engine mounted over the front wheel, Velosolex-style; Model B with JLO engine in the normal position; and a Deluxe version of the latter.

A type of motorcycle rarely encountered in the USA, this Renata tandem has been part of a European collection for many years.
