Akshay: This is a very neatly designed motorcycle. The curves on it beat most of the beauty queens. If you notice the throttle, the cable runs inside the handlebar.

Thank you all.
This is one of those designs that is so enduring.
Some of the features include interchangeable wheels, automatic clutch, enclosed carburettor etc. Amazing ride quality.
You should see the history tab in this link to give you an idea of the evolution.

Neat Jawa.
All you need to do now is to get round foot rests and replace the silencer rubber with castle nuts.

Wonderful Restoration and its the Jawa Orginial Maroon colour which gives it more authenticity.
