    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.

    :dealHere'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:deal DSCN7055.JPG

    Mine. Restored from a rusty mess. The Finished Product 002.jpg 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.

    Yeah mine started out like this ... 01 The Beginning 178-7847_IMG.JPG 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.

    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 JAWA 010.jpg :D
