How I became a Jawa/CZ biker.
My father had ride a Jawa bike in the 50's and 60's but then the economy gets better he sold it and bought a car I have never seen it because i wasn't born that time but he told me about it.
In 1996 I had my license but no money to buy a bike than a friend told me he had a Jawa Californian in his garage. It was build in 1974 and he bought it in 1976 second hand than he ride with it for 2 years and than he put it in his garage. I may have it if I want but he didn't know of everything was allright because it stand there for 18 years. So one evening we go to the garage and bring it over to my house, the next saturday we bought some things like a new battery and spark-plugs and try to get a good spark when everything was checked we put petrol in it and after 3 kicks it runs that was amazing because it didn't run for 18 years.
Than I met a few people from the Dutch JAWA/CZ Club and make myself a member of them. After that I started to collect Jawa, CZ and other Jawa relative bikes like a Italjet-Jawa and a Velorex 16-350.
That is my Story of Jawa and CZ.
