Jawa 500
From the Czech cold into the Dutch spring

250 JAWA 500 cc four-stroke branches were once made. These were seen as decadent by the people's socialist planning office. JAWA was instructed to destroy them.

And the Czechs did that, but only administratively.


But in distant Winterswijk, which, as you know, is close to the Czech Republic, one has surfaced with enthusiast, technician, collector and a little trader Roel Donatz from Moto Donatz.


The Jawa is the result of a targeted procession through the former Eastern Bloc country and the friendly maintenance of an extensive network in that region.


And isn't he beautiful?
