Have a nice day. Etienne BLANCHON (France) firstname.lastname@example.org
I have just finished my Jawa
350 chopper project, and thought you you might like to show it on your
pictures section. l bought this bike in Wales for £350 in good
condition with only 2000 miles on the clock. l live near Portsmouth
but completed the trip in 10 hours. It is a quite rare Jawa 350
Chopper 1995. What l have always wanted is a twin two stroke street
scrambler and the only bike that came close was a good old Jawa 350. l
know it is good to keep these bikes original so as l have changed a
few bits l have done this so as l will be able to refit all these bits
back to make it original again. l have put trials bars on, relocated
the mudguards, fitted smaller indicators and a pair of micron exhausts
which sound great (but not too loud) off eBay for £125. All in, it
has cost me less than £500 and l am so proud of how it has turned
Portuguese Antonio Lourinho and Ricardo Lourinho - father and son owners of this Jawa 500 OHC Typ15/00 (1952) which will soon be restored to its original
condition. If you have any spare parts for this Jawa model please
E-mail them as they are still struggling to find some bits to complete
their restoration. E-mail: Kinglourinho@gmail.com

Just thought you'd like to see a few pics. Event was a huge success
public car park had to be closed after an hour as it was full and it
was pretty big! As you can see we presented a good cross section
that drew in the visitors. The Avenue was heaving all day. You may
just see Mr Kinnish trying to hide in one
pic! Czech bike club also exhibited.
Here are a couple of shots of a 1957 Jawa 250 complete with Velorex sidecar which took part in the recent International Rally at Luc sur
Mer, near Caen. It ran two-up all day and performed remarkably well. Now if I could just get one to bolt onto my Jawa 250..................

To Pete Edwards,
This is not a request
for tools etc. Just to say all the best to the Jawa / CZ Owners
Club. I look at the very interesting website every couple of weeks to
keep me up-to-date. Nice to see some of the names are still
around from the early days. I look back to the early rallies at
we had with very fond memories. I couldn’t wait for the date to
come around each year and still have the prizes I won including all
the rally badges from 1978 to 1985. I still have the motorcycle I made
with the Citroen 2CV engine / gearbox all those years ago (though I
can’t ride anymore).
It has a Citroen Visa
652cc engine, modified to fit a 2CV gearbox, fitted with infra red
ignition, lightened fly wheel 7lb, lightened clutch, hydraulic
operated, CX 500 forks and wheel, twin front discs, modified cylinder
heads fitted with twin Amal carbs, alloy rocker covers, straight
through stainless exhausts, 4 speed and reverse gears. I did try to
start it 4 years ago. The carbs were flooding but there was a good
spark. Below are a few photos.
Anyway, best wishes
to the Jawa / CZ Owners Club. From
a very old ex club member.

JAWA 660 introduced on a motorbikes show in Prague last month. It
will be on the market from early 2010. This
new model will replace current JAWA 650 motorcycles. How
do you like it? We think it looks great.
Saw your website while looking for JAWA info. This 350 JAWA was converted to an outboard leg
here in West Australia in the 1960's. We still can't confirm the brand of leg it was adapted to. The fins were removed and copper jackets fitted around the cylinders for cooling. The kick start is now a hand start lever! It is fitted with a 6 volt electric fuel pump and
carb just rotated 90 degrees so as to remain upright. You may want to use it on your photo gallery. An excellent
site. Well done! Regards Steve Green
Hello, I just want to send you some
pictures of my Jawa 638 outfit, which I mainly use in winter for
rallies like the Dreiköngistreffen or the Tauerntreffen in the Austrian alps.
I built the outfit in 2007, using a rather rotten Jawa 638 from Styria, a Velorex boat from Vorarlberg and a
sidecar frame from Russia. In my opinion it is perfect for driving in winter, because its so light, which makes things much
easier in the snow. With tyres, all the Austrian winter drivers I know use the
tyres made by Stephan Immler in Germany, which are perfect in heavy snow conditions. With these you need not very often to fit the
snow chains to get further on.
Unfortunately this year on the way home from the Tauerntreffen (which means riding up a
sledge track and camp 1700m high on the mountain to participate) the gearing of the Jawa broke. So I had to get out the engine a 350km from home, take it with me and leave the rest there. I built up the engine new already and it waits for getting reinstalled to get the outfit back home. Because I
didn't find very much information about building up a Jawa 638 engine on the web, I
documented the whole thing from changing the crankshaft bearings, building the gearing in the right way and
reassembling the whole thing.
With kind regards from Austria, Robert Kittel email@example.com

Dear Jawa CZ Owners Club,
Here is a photo of my 250cc bike which is the same model as shown in your leading photo of Ian Robert's bike (obviously in much better condition). Mine is original apart from the mirrors, and the tank was resprayed. It is not really surprising that the model was rare, as, even though I enjoy it now regards general handling and 4th gear throttle response between 60 and 90 km/h, which is nice for tight roads, I believe the 175 was better a performer overall. Also, looking at the saddle on Ian Roberts bike, I think I have an economy version, albeit with aluminum rims.

are some photos of my 1961 Jawa Manet AOO 869 that I am restoring. It
seems like every one knows about the 350s but not many have heard of
the Manet 100s. As you can see this bike has not been on the road
for many years and even after I spent most of the day cleaning
the mold and grass that was growing on it there is still a lot to be
done. Mark Reeve firstname.lastname@example.org
Roberts’ very tidy & quite rare CZ model 485, 250cc single.
This model is a “modern” CZ frame and cycle parts, fitted
with an engine similar to the older Jawa 559 twin port, but with a
came from a friend in Montenegro (in the Balkans) and is of obvious
interest. The bike is based on a
Type 639 and is a split twin. This
means that rather than the sensible option of having the pistons 30
degrees out of sync with each other, the pistons move in banks of
means that with the choice of already torquey power plant, power
pulses to the rear tyre are a bit violent.
It does, however, solve the ignition and exhaust pipe problem,
as a staggered firing 30 degree engine would require six separate
pipes and complex ignition. Andy

Here are a few shots I took
while covering the Manx Classic Trials Weekend. The rider is Gunter Ruttloff from Germany and the bike is a 1962 270cc Jawa CZ. Gunter won the overseas award and the overseas newcomer award.
Whilst I am not a member and only had
the misfortune to own a CZ 175 Trail for 12 months in 1976/77, I have
always kept an eye open for them when out and about. I saw this model
in the El Khalili market in Cairo last week. I have a snap of the
other side too; you can see the engine is a Linhai twin. There is also
a Jawa 350 combo I snapped in Aswan. The vast majority of over 250cc
bikes I saw in Egypt were various models of Jawa 350. They are even
used by the Police, alongside some very, very ratty Yamaha FJ1200s. I
also saw a tidy 1960's Jawa 250 twin rattling about Cairo (a bulbous
red thing it was). Sadly, my favourite Marque (MZ) was not as
prominent, with only a smattering of ETZs in evidence. The current hot
bikes in Egypt are Dayun and Honda 150 fourstrokes. Tony Houlihan Windermere.
Below is a photo of a full restoration of a 1977 CZ 175 Trail I bought in a sad condition last September of
eBay. I have had great amusement from this restoration and found people very optimistic about this marque. I also have a CZ 250 twin and a Jawa 350 which will receive the same nut and bolt restoration. Parts for these bikes are still reasonably easy to obtain. The classic scene is much more fun and it’s great to hear the sounds of the seventies 2 stroke machines again.
