Matthew James' CZ typ 477
Thanks for the pictures and rebuild story Matthew!
|Juha Siikarla's Jawa Special
I have made this Jawa sport model. Frame is Jawa typ 353 with Gilera Giubileo 175
rear frame and rear suspension (rear swing fork is Jawa original). Engine is Jawa Six Days
553-04 with high compression head (Jawa typ 557 /11.5 : 1). Fuel tank and side boxes and
front mudguard are from old Gilera Giubileo. The front lamp is Honda CB 350 unit. Electric
system is Vape without battery (12 Volt). Front fork is Jawa 353 item, shortened about
55mm. I built the bike in about three years, last summer was first driving year. I've
admired Italian bikes so I thought to make a bike by my mind. Greetings from
Jirí ika's Jawa typ 635 Sport
Im sending you photos of a Jawa 350cc prototype from 1963, the typ 635 Sport. It featured a 2-stroke single cylinder 340cc, (75mm Bore x 75mm Stroke), and a 4-speed engine that produced 21hp at 5500 rpm. The bike also featured 16 wheels, weighed 135 kg, (297 lbs), and had a top speed of 115-120 kph
This is a beautiful prototype, I wonder why it never went into production?
|Erwin Derksen's Monark typ 692
But just to inform you I bought a Monark type 962, built in 1963, that's the one with the Jawa S554 engine. The Swedish army bought 1000 of those S554 engines and asked Monark to build a frame for it.
Erwin: Thanks, nice machine. This is not exactly a road bike but it's not exactly not a road bike either.
Taeke Pijpker's Jawas
I send you pictures from the Jawa`s I have, Californian, jawa 353 and a Jawetta . I have a lot of work to make them as new. Greetings. Taeke Pijpker, Stiens, Holland.
Thanks for the pictures Taeke! I think everyone will agree that your bikes look very "new". It does not look like you have much work to do to me.
|Richard Raizada's 1975 CZ typ 471
Reese: Nice site. Attached are a couple of pictures of my 1975 250 twin. Regards. Richard Raizada
Thanks Richard. You did not give much info with your pics but you no doubt enjoy riding this cafe modified CZ twin around the beautiful UK country side.
Brendan Botha's Jawa typ 353
I am sending you this email from South Africa icw a 1963 JAWA 250 cc. (Will send some pic's & tell me what you think.) I have had the old girl for a few years but just dont have the time to restore her....and my wife hates the bike!!!! Have a look and let me know what you think! Regards, Brendan Botha, Pretoria, South Africa.
Brendan, thanks for the pictures. At least your dogs love the bike! Update 7/25/2009, Brendan has changed the color of his bike, at right the latest look. Thanks again Brendan.
Rob Leek's Italajet 350cc
Here's Rob's very original 350 Italajet. This shot gives one a
good idea of the original paint sceam of these bikes. Here's what Rob wrote about his
"I own an Italjet 350 twin which uses a Jawa 350 engine. Ik have one complete, and another in parts. They are from 1968. It looks as if this model is only intended for Holland, because there were always lots of Jawas sold here what would be handy when servicing an Italjet-Jawa. By the way, when writing this, is remember my first motorcycle, a CZ 125 or 175. How the hell dit you have to start these things?! How could I know that one lever had two or more funcions? Have fun, Rob Leek"
(I have received word that Rob passed away in early 2012, Godspeed Rob)
From Ian Bridge
Saw some nice competition Jawa's when I attended the Dutch Rally last weekend and enclose a few pictures.
Who knows the year, size, and model of the Ogar?
