History

1980 Sparta De Luxe

Sparta Motors was a Dutch motorcycle, scooter and moped manufacturer in Holland. In 1931, Sparta released its first moped, which was equipped with a 78 cc engine. World War II haulted production, and afterwards, the company focussed on producing mopeds.

The late 70's models of Foxi Sparta mopeds that were imported to the U.S. were formed between 2 company's that manufactured 2 unique models under the same Foxi name and logo. The Foxi name was U.S. only, and never existed in the European market.

Sparta produced the more common model as the Foxi GT Sport, and the Sparta Buddy or De Luxe. The frame and design was a progression and evolution of the Sparta mopeds from the past, and shares similar features all the way back to the 1950's models. The brand Flying Dutchman also sold an identical model of the Foxi/Sparta under their own name.

KTM produced the alternate Foxi model which used it's own unique frame, and was called the Foxi Deluxe Automatik.

  • All Foxi/Sparta and KTM/Foxi mopeds were made in Holland.
  • All Foxi/Sparta mopeds were imported by United Mopeds in the 70's.
