Ajaybiz, you may notice that the front mudguard on your photographed bike is also the updated type, not the WFM one which is wider and longer. Using these as bargaining points hopefully you can get the price down to 2000. I might have a headlight dome for you, but it would be the polish type, and that looks like it has a larger speedometer :-( which I don't have.
The shocks in plastic covers are not as desirable as the chrome ones, but also used to come on later WFM bikes (I have seen many). So you don't have to upgrade those.

Oh, but yes the rear ones, just saw, are definitely not original. They must be fully enclosed.

@powertwin

Sir, the Jawa looks simply superb. Perfect. Just like out of the production line.
Apart from the tanks, I see that you have changed the stand and rear view mirror too.

Which tank does it have now? Did this model come with the milling hub? Did you change it to the later model?

Really happy to see a jawa in such pristine condition. Hats off to you!

Regards,
Ajay

Got it for 2.5K and i think that fair enough as at present no but in coming 10-15 years this is going to be another cult classic.
Insaneinsaan thanks buddy and yes i am OK to buy if you want to sell me that headlight dome, I'll arrange meter from somewhere else. Does this shares the same cylinder kit as the last few produced Rajdoots?Can we fit crank and cylinder kit from those Rajdoots?to be very precise if someone knows the bore and stroke, crank rod length, port mappings etc.

The bar end mirror was my ORNAMENT !!
As I ride once in a blue moon, have fitted the regular Jawa fuel tank

Ok guys sorry to interrupt. I know the thread is going a bit slow, but it's still going.
Can we please keep the jawa talk restricted to the ABUNDANT jawa threads? This has got really off topic :-)

Hi Guys,
I am nearing completion of restoring my bike and 3 parts are eluding me.
1. The original 2 cup shock absorbers for the rear
2. The clutch and front brake levers
3. The neck lock.

If some one could give me some heads up for these items , I would be very grateful to you.

@AjayBiz,
Yes, It shares the same cylinder kit as the last produced Rajdoots. I guess there was only one version of cylinder kit for Rajdoot. I did buy one and it suited my vehicle perfectly. I guess they are easily available in the market.

Regarding the bore, stroke and port mappings etc , it should be available in the Rajdoot workshop manual. Will try posting a link to it here or will mail it to u.

Happy Restoration.

@Sirish,
Yes, you started the thread with
"This thread is going to be dedicated to an unsung hero of Indian heritage bikes. The OLD Rajdoot, assembled (I believe) from parts made in Poland."

from now on, we will stick to it

@Powertwin
sir,
I would like to hear more from you regarding our Jawas and Yezdis. We shall do it off this thread.We will have our Jawa discussions on PM

Regards,
Ajay

Nice to hear that your restoration goes well. How about some WIP pictures?
Regarding the shock absorbers, I think you will have to look out in some second hand market or some old stocks. My rajdoot has the original rear shocks which have plastic top cups. The lock will be difficult to get. All the best!!!

With thanks and regards

This Bike is certainly a reference Bike for all restorers.

The Carb does n't seem to be a Micarb. It has a tickler instead of a Choke. Can you please post some pics of the Carb and also the name of the carb.



Ajay
Yes Ajay, this is the carb for all WFM Rajdoots, that is not Mikarb or Mikuni is PEGAZ, a Polish product, licensed from Amal ( Brtish).

Do you even I have picked a 1964 WFM ( pics after a week),even it had Mikarb, so just few days before sourced a Used PEGAZ carb for my bike..here you see the pics of the Carb only


Please observe the Carb top lid portion, you can see the Choke cable adjacent to the accelerator slider cable ( from my friend's bike carb)
