Post Sale Update: After 72 bids on eBay, this Jawa in a crate sold for $12,100.

This Jawa Californian was crated from the factory 45 years ago, and it’s been in the crate ever since. It’s been well protected and it’d be fair for you to assume that the bike is in immaculate condition, however the crate was hit by a forklift during transport so the headlight bucket is damaged.

Other than the headlight issue, the seller says that everything else is in great shape. There’s not much else to say about this bike (Frame #: 3905, Engine #: 3640). It’s been in a basement for four decades! The seller says the engine turns over, and that the bike does not have a title/has never been registered.

Here’s a picture of another Californian that was sitting unassembled out of the crate and “covered with the same amount of dust” for reference:
