On the left is the old factory with the
new factory on the right.
We have reconstructed our main factory building which was built in
the 1960’s. Reconstruction was done between 2014 - 2015.
Original Building Refurbished. Thanks to the reconstruction of the
building we will reduce its energy consumption and reduce our
operating costs. Now we have also adequate modern facilities for the
current serial production and for prepared production of future
generations of JAWA motorcycles.
Together with the main building reconstruction, we have invested in
new modern machine tools and other machinery which could not be
operated properly in the old non-reconstructed spaces.

"ITV love JAWA..." Jawa Classic Outfit to hit our TV screens
Club Secretary, Pete Edwards volunteered
the use of his 2011 JAWA Classic and Swift sidecar outfit to ITV who
were making a programme for Channel 4 – “Come Dine: Champion of
Champions” to be screened early in 2016. Filming was on 4th
November at Renishall Hall, Derbyshire.
The venue was superb and the parkland full of autumn colour. The
outfit had been cleaned up but the last few days were very foggy and
damp and the morning did not start well but by 10am it was simply
murky. The M1 was dry due to the amount of traffic so the
outfit only needed a quick wipe down to look its best. The
weather improved as the day went on and for the ride home on side
roads the sun shone.
