Unbelievable! Coolest thing on advrider in a while. Thanks for sharing!
You're welcome. Thanks for posting.
These are the ones I have here in the states.
This one in East Germany.
And this is my 50cc Simson in East Germany.
And my 150cc MZ in Germany.
Don't know if this qualifies for this thread however here it is anyway. Two previous owners and a genuine 4500 kilometres on the clock. Still runs the original Turkish Birlas tyres however unfortunately the rear only has a few hundred miles left. Front still good for another 4500k though!!
Seemed like reasonable value at £450.
I LOVE that bike! Especially the larger engine. I have a book, in German, about the Turkish MZs, but I cannot find it at the moment. Most people do not realize some of the design features these have. In addition to the rubber mounted motor and the fully enclosed drive chain, I also like the crankshaft mounted clutch.
Here's a clever MZ feature I've never seen on any other bike. It's not an odometer or a trip meter, it's simply a number reminder! You can roll the digits to any number you want, last fill up, start of trip, wife's birthday. It's not connected to the speedometer at all. I think it's COOL
Mine. Restored from a rusty mess.
1970 350cc Jawa Californian. Lived in an open three bay shed unprotected from the weather and bird crap all over it, only 5603 miles on the clock. I rescued it about 5 years ago and returned to it's former glory. Runs beautifully now and a pleasure to ride.
OMG! Beautiful Yours is SO much more awesomer than mine!
I did get it running, however
Yeah mine started out like this ...
and like yours I had to paint the sides of the tank...it was too rusty to chrome , or so my local chrome shop said. Shame that, but they still look good painted I think.
i have 2 and a half jawa.. very nice to ride, low price, high quality.. i do serious travvelling on them..
For all of our general amusement, I submit this JAWA which required three months of PB Blaster and propane torch to free a cylinder. Look carefully, you can see the smoke
This one is from England,but its pretty neat.
this one is pretty much done. just minor things to finish.
and this is what i'm starting on now.
1994 Jawa 350 ( mine..:) )
And my Jawa 250..
