c.1956 Eysink Renata 50cc Model B Tandem Moped
Founded at Amersfoort in the Netherlands in the late 1890s, Eysink made bicycles, cars and motorcycles until 1920, concentrating on the latter thereafter. The firm used proprietary engines for its motorcycles, 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, arguably 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 over the front wheel, Velosolex style; Model B with JLO engine in the normal position; and a de luxe version of the latter.

A type of motorcycle rarely encountered in the USA, this Renata tandem was purchased by the vendor circa 2002 as a fun project to run around town on. Sourced in Holland, the motor is a 'new old stock' item, and drives the rear wheel via a single gear. The original engine (which is operable) and a substantial quantity of spares are included in the sale.
