Back in the mid 1950's my dad was a
cycle mechanic in southern Holland. He always talked about his CZ
350. I hope to find one someday to add to my stable of bikes.
I have two pictures of my dad on his CZ:
one he riding in a street competition (that he won) in Oss, and the
other is my dad and mom on vacation in Germany.

Hello best friends! Here is a picture of an Italjet Vampire
which belongs to a friend of mine. Very rare, maybe something for
your club Magazine. With best Jawa/CZ regards.

Attached are a few
pictures of my Jawa 350, 638 which I have converted into a Café
racer. It is a bit of an on-going project and the next thing I want to
do is get some expansion chambers. I’m
hoping to get the bike on the road before the end of September.

As you know there has been a great deal of publicity surrounding the Jawa Retro model produced by an independent company. Jawa informed me that this independently produced model is not a Jawa, not covered by Jawa warranty and they were in the process of taking legal action to protect their brand name. However the good news is that the factory have seen the merits of a Retro model and I can now offer the official factory produced and warranted Jawa 350 Retro. The first delivery is here at
F2 and I have to say it has exceeded my expectations. The new Retro model retains the electric start and oil pump from the standard Classic model but the frame and panels hark back to the
1970's 634 model. I think they have done a fantastic job.

I hope you can help me. Several years ago
I hand built myself a Cezeta sidecar with a Suzuki 250cc engine in it.
I heard that it went overseas and is driving around somewhere in England.
Do you know who owns it yet?

My 1947 Jawa Perak has an
interesting story behind it. It was registered on the 13th of August
1947 and India became independent 2 days later.
So this is one of the last motorbikes to be registered before
Independence. These are the details of my Perak:
Chassis No: 9-6832
Engine No: 11-5276
I will surely update you on the proceedings and will keep you posted
on the restoration. Please see below a few pictures and let me know
your thoughts. Thanks again, Pratap Henry
The photo's below were sent in by
from Zakynthos (Zante) Greece sent a photo of a CZ 175 with
Honda Chinese copy engine 110cc.
I see your web pages, its very nice to see that English are supporters of
Czech Jawa - its great! You have nice bikes there!
Below is my Jawa 350 perak from 1950. Refurbished over winter. With the best regards,
Jaroslav Musil from
is the next what I have - Jawa 500 OHC from 1957, refurbished in 2
years (not correct all parts, but I like her).
This is my bike. A Jawa 360-00. This motorcycle is cool....very cool.

Hi, I was looking through the photo's on your site and noticed that you may be interested in some Jawa photo's. I've attached some that you are welcome to use. This Jawa started life as a T.S.
350 from 1990. I wanted something more retro looking but had to be Jawa. So
I set about trying to develop and make a new model of my own (the R.T.
350). This involved making almost everything myself that's fitted to this Jawa such as rear fender strut's, rear light holder,
new seat base with modified seat rail etc. The front end has been
lowered by 40mm and the rear end raised by the same amount. With all these
modifications the seat height is lower than standard. The exhaust's have been shortened and raised at the rear.
Hope you like. Terence Hines
Hi Pete. Just a little something for the Jawa Mag! If anyone is in
Southern California, try looking in on the Town of "Solvang" a Danish village built in California just off Highway 1 or PCH as its
known! There you will find a very nice motorcycle museum with some nice Jawa & CZ racer's on display plus the village is nice to look around too.

Pretorius from South Africa has been working hard to
launch his JAWA 500 OHC Twin which looks great!
am Murat from Alanya, Turkey. My joy and pride is a 1971 Type 559
250cc. It has been overhauled down to the last nut and bolt. She is now
the mascot of our airport (TAV Alanya-Gazipasa Airport). The overall
cost was no more than 175 GBP including all the license papers etc...
