How I became a Jawa/CZ biker.
My father had ride a Jawa bike in the 50's and 60's but then the economy
gets better he sold it and bought a car I have never seen it because i wasn't
born that time but he told me about it.
In 1996 I had my license but no money to buy a bike than a friend told me he
had a Jawa Californian in his garage. It was build in 1974 and he bought it
in 1976 second hand than he ride with it for 2 years and than he put it in
his garage. I may have it if I want but he didn't know of everything was
allright because it stand there for 18 years. So one evening we go to the
garage and bring it over to my house, the next saturday we bought some
things like a new battery and spark-plugs and try to get a good spark when
everything was checked we put petrol in it and after 3 kicks it runs that
was amazing because it didn't run for 18 years.
Than I met a few people from the Dutch JAWA/CZ Club and make myself a member
of them. After that I started to collect parts and things for my Jawa. Than
1998 I bought a Jawa 641 sport but a friend a my get an accident with it and
I sold it. After that I bought the Jawa Tramp it was in 2000, than I bought
5 Jawa Californians in diffirent shapes and they didn't run so I sold 4 of
them, I have still one for sale. last year I bought a CZ 175 cc type 477 and
a Jawa 634 in parts, I build the CZ together and ride with it, the Jawa 634
is still in parts and I will sell it in parts. Than I became a telephone
call from a man he want to sell his Californian I go over to take a look of
the bike than he had also an 640 blue style and another 634 in parts.
He want to sell it and we make a good deal and I bought it all.
I sold the jawa blue style and the 634 is still in parts in the garage. Than
I bought for 75 euro a CZ 250 sport type 471 year 1979 and put it in tha
garage also. In October last year I bought 3 bikes in one week, the Italjet-Jawa,
an Jawa Californian and an CZ 250 sport build 1937, they were all ready to
drive with so they I keep and sell a few of the other bikes.
Two weeks ago I trade a Jawa Californian and the CZ 250 Sport Type 471 for
the Jawa Caféracer (self made).
That is my Story of Jawa and CZ.
