    Cool! I'm planning a trip to Vienna and Prague next June 19, and I'll be shopping for an early 50s Jawa 350 Twin like my dad used to ride:

    That's my dad and mom on the Jawa during their tour of Germany from Holland back in 52. My mom said it was the Ogar and not the Perak, hope I can find one!

    There is hope in my search for an early 50's Jawa 350 twin! I was in Prague back in June but got no time to visit any local shops, sigh. But, just last week I met Stan Simpson at a customer account. We got to talking bikes and I mentioned I am looking for a 48 to 54 Jawa 350 twin. Stan has LOTS of contacts. Next day he says "is a complete 52 in a crate, along with a Trackmaster frame ok?" He has a contact that has one! I have no further details but a lot of hope this may be a good grab!
