I can explain with pics from the workshop manual, if you'd want. Also, the 'Kyvacka' shocks are different from these particular Czech shocks.

Gendarmee: I have the original workshop manual from 1956. Let me look it up again.

Update: The engine has been put together. I will post pictures as soon as the parts come from painting.

Sorry for the late posts. It has been raining over the last week here in Bangalore, so the whole painting process has stopped. It looks a little sunny'r the coming days and hopefully the painting will be completed. I had a late 1950s Jawa part that is in its original paint. So we got the paint mixed to almost the exact same shade. Right now the body parts have all been tinkered, primered, and the first coat of red has come on (not the original color), and bondo'd. The engine has been put together. Only the Cylinder needs to be painted. Once I start assembling the bike I will put in detailed pictures.

Yes the monsoon is playing hide and seek when it is regarding painting. I can understand, hope it turns out to be in your favour. All the best.

Glomus and Chanu: Yes it is going to be the original color. Like I said I had a jawa part that belonged to the late 50s which is still on its original color and I matched the paint to he closest shade of red that I could get. Well, the painting has been done and it has come out a shade darker but then it would lightening a bit after the "rubbing" is done and also I matched it with a part that is 60 plus years old and lightened a bit over the years. Will start posting pics soon.

Hey guys:

At last the bike has come back from painting and the assembly is on slowly. Lots of hurdles. First thing the festivals and then one of the exhausts developed loads of pinholes trying to chrome it. These are the old type ones and it took me a while to get. I was lucky to get another one and it should go for plating now.

Ok, let me start with the frame. The basic difference in the pre-1962 and the later frame is that the former came with a steering lock (check the pictures.) Another subtle difference is the portion where the side sheilds and the tank bolt fits. In the newer models, you will find a small pipe and the older ones a square frame. Then you had the downpipe with the cover for the cables which are different from that pre-1967 to the later ones. You had a provision to fix it to the chassis with a bolt and a nut. The shape of the cover is very different too. So these are the basic differences in the chassis or the most glaring ones. Im attaching pics of all these and also of the exhaust with the pin holes.

Nice to see some new WIP photos. I never thought that Jawa came with a handle lock like this. Always found old ones with a Godrej lock!! The color looks very nice. Waiting to see some more developments.

With thanks and regards

Hi

I am doing up my 1966 250cc 353, can anyone let me know what is the colour scheme closest to Red

One of my friend tells me that i have to select Imperial Creamson Oil paint by Asian Paints and computerised it, this will comeup close to the Original Red supplied by the company

Tuffryder, any updates on the bike? Been checking almost every day, hoping to see pics of the completed motorcycle.

Cheers
Rahul

Default Update: Bike should be ready by this weekend

Here are some pictures of parts that are going into the bike.

Electricals: PAL HT coil and brakelight switch and a 1961 czech made alternator.

Throttle body: Managed to find this almost unused throttle body of a jawa/cz. I got the throttle body and a pre1962 jawa handlebar (will post pics later). Note the shape of the grip. The left hand side grip is a similar one except that it is thinner.

Kicker/shifter lever: Attaching pictures of the pre1967 and post 1968 pics. The one with the slit is the correct one for bikes of this period.

Fuel Tap: NOS Jikov.

Sproket: NOS milling type sproket. Not an original one but this would last at least 20-25k km.

Hubs: NOS milling type hubs.

Taillamp: Collected this in parts but the whole set in a brand new one now.


Sorry for the late updates. Been pretty held up with other things. As of now the bike has been put together almost completely. It needs to go for a paint touchup and a round of polishing and then pinstriping.

Thanks Ed. I was planning on a more detailed thread but time is not permitting. Im spending a considerable time of the day fixing the bike myself.

Here are pictures of the PAL 6v horn. The horn grill is missing the brass badge in the center which Im planning on importing along with a few other parts.

Note the ventilation for the battery box in the pre1-962 models. They had fins compared to the holes in the later models.

Here are pictures of the bike before going for polishing and paint touchup.

Update: bike has been polished and the cylinder painted. We need to paint a few silver parts, like the hub cap and cylinder head and then send it for pinstripping.

Brilliant job! Your attention to detail is superb man! Original PAL horn even! The last pic shows the bike with the regular steel centre-stand. Was this original, or was it the aluminium one?

Hope she's even better looking after the final touch-ups. Good luck with everything!

Cheers
Rahul
