Default Jawa 350 Pics

The pics of the Jawa 350 as I had promised:
Remember, this bike was built by us over 3 years ago, so some of the features (like the Pulsar tank) may look outdated today.

Front 3/4:


Rear 3/4 showing 100/90 Dunlops:


Custom side panel (there is also a custom rear panel which fits into the back, but its been removed now):


Pulsar Tank:


3.00-18 Zapper and Hella 3000 clone headlight:


New mod: 28mm Pacco Carburettor(yet to come: tuned intake pipe and K&N filter):


Stock dials on custom dashboard w/Neutral and charging lights; Yamaha YBX switchgear:


Conical Alloy drum with twin-leading shoes rotating on CBZ front forks:



And lastly, a small digression: Darth Vader, my 1996 KB125 which is absolutely stock on the outside but has blown away many Pulsar 180s and Karizma in its heyday, today its a civilized daily driver:



In retrospect, I think the Jawa was better because other people snapped their necks doing a quick double-take, but the KB125 only snapped my own neck due to its wild power delivery: 9500 RPM on the street, anyone?

Good for you. My drag bike used to do that much. In 4th too. But on a street bike, well i think you would be in first most of the time to even keep up with the traffic.

Vin its extremely tough to find a good one. Very few were made in the first place. But if you get lucky, grab it!

The bike was in a decrepit condition when it was bought. We had to do up the entire vehicle from scratch. Everything except the frame and engine castings is new. The total cost of everything (bike included) came to about 45k, if I remember right.

Spares are available in plenty in Mysore..keep a stockpile of them if your buying a bike, though...

very innovative idea of using the rear coil springs for the front suspension. He could have been a little more creative in the design part. Could have given it a better tear-drop tank, wire-wheels and a 21-in + front wheel. This looks like it's done just to breal the "Longest Indian bike" record, where its extended just for the sake of it.

Anyways a nice attempt.

i dunno why he has done what he has, the discs were'nt working, as you must have noticed in the pics, there are'nt any callipers, well whatever he has done just looks cool and is eye-catching nothing more, as a rideable bike i dont think it is any good, the front fork i thought can crack easily if went into a pothole.... could have done somthing much better with it

Everything is good, about the bike, the design, color, but where it fails if the engine!

hey man ! thats nice maintenance but I guess those allows would be too heavy for your bike...You could try the Karizma Alloys...they might easen the load of that engine...remember...you have to maintain the power to weight ratio...else you gonna get beaten down a straight line...
Always think twice...
