Hi,I have recently acquired a mobelette kaptein believed to be a 1960 model,the number on the top engine mount is S2 OB B247072.I am looking for a pair of fork springs and a hand book or parts book can you help please,john.
From the little bit of research I have done HERE I can see that yours is probably a Dutch Mobylette. It seems that William Kaptein imported Mobylettes to the Netherlands and your would appear to be an S2.
It amazing what you can google.
I imagine that Brian Aplin, "Aplins of Bristol" could help with parts. Aplins have no website and no e-mail so its over to pen paer and phone.
Thanks for the info,Iwill contact Brian Alpin about spares, just getting fax signal at the moment.I googled kaptein and printed off Wikipedia article,it gives the history 1949---1973.I am learning but slowly regards ,john.
