I did attend this meet , but by the time I went most of the things were packed up. There were a handful of yezdis here and there , a couple of them selling Jawa caps and T shirts , and a battery stall. I was quite disappointed and returned home. But there were some nice well maintained bikes. It was a visual treat. An event like this has the potential to do more.

Jawa day 2017 at Mysuru

Vintage models

The motorcycles paraded included vintage bikes such as a 1948-model Jawa motorcycle imported from what was then Czechoslovakia. The motorcycle is now owned by Raghu, a resident of Mysuru, who purchased it from its previous owner eight years ago. “The bike is still used regularly on city roads,” Mr. Krishna said.

International Jawa Day is observed on the second Sunday of July every year to mark the start of production of these motorcycles in the 1960s. Not only vehicles manufactured at the facility in Mysuru till 1996, when the factory was closed, even motorcycles imported from Czechoslovakia are paraded at the rally every year.
