Batavus Bingo front fork shocks

John Gooding /

The front fork shocks on my Bingo are blown. I lift the bike up and the tube slides down. I bought the bike like this. How do I fix this? Is it an adjustment or do I need to buy a used replacement? The body paint is nice so can I transfer the guts from a used shock to this bike? I'm sorry its just been so long (20 years) since I've worked on these.

I saw that thread and it’s doesn’t help. When I lift the bike up the shocks seem to slide out more than they should. I’m guessing a past owner tried to fix these and left a part out or didn’t tighten something. Should I buy used forks and transfer parts over to my bike or is this a simple fix?

Just tear apart what you have . See what's what and go from there .
