Bike looks great.
Get the orginal tank!
Check out YEZDI CLUB on orkut, they have a thread called mechanics list, u can find out about the better ones in ur city there.
->Get the JIKOV carb immediately. its a combo of performance and mileage designed for the JAWA, yezdi is a JAWA. You should get the JIKOV for 1500 bucks in banglore or I have 2 extra ones but they cost 2000 bucks here in hyd. Putting a Rajdooth carb is easy delivers great mileage comparitively but screws up the power, if u cant get a jikov get a pacco, its use and throw pacco cant be rebored and re used, jkov can be, upto 3 times!
Not every mechanic can tune the jikov baby though
The actualy power & mileage of the bike will be good only if it has a new piston kit, power goes down upto 20-40% on a rebored one depending on bore size & age of bike. 60 size can get the mileage down to 22-24 with an old bike. best is to replace with a new bore & piston for power (if you manage to find it )

->You are in banglore dude! Look around you might get the tank, if not available,try shivajinagar Scrap yard.

Get 90 grade oil for the gear box great for long term(the manual recommends 40 grade)
->I'd keep everything original. Dont know about anyone having discs on it, so cant comment on it, i havent found the brakes a problem, just get oversized brake shoes.
->Dont try kerosene on it, ruins the engine after a bit. But yeah, the bike runs bluidy well on it
->Dont like the sound? i love it, try it w/o the mufflers man! if we use half mufflers, we wont have to get the silencers de carbonised often.
Here are some JAWA tees i got printed, planning to get new ones again.
Last year's set-JAWA and OCC logo.

This is what I'll probably get dont later this month!
