Also known as the Model 11, the Jawa Perak 250 was developed in secret during WWII when Nazi Germany had occupied the Czech Republic. Jawa predicted that when the war was over, its competition would only be able to offer gussied-up versions of pre-war bikes, and they planned on stealing market share with a new design full of special modifications such as front and rear shocks, unit construction engine, and a semi-automatic clutch. By ’48, Jawa had a new Perak model called the 350 with a 344cc two-stroke, air-cooled twin that put out 14 horsepower through a 4-speed transmission.
This example was restored in Australia by a gentleman named Rick Schaap 10 years ago, and the bike has only been ridden 84 miles since. Everything is said to work, but the seller notes that the paint “finish is not the best quality” and there’s a small oil leak coming from the speedometer cable.
