After buying the German firm Wanderer in 1929, František Janeček created Jawa by taking the first two letters from his last name and the firm he had purchased. Fast forward to the 50s, and Jawa had made nearly a million bikes, including the 250cc twin exhaust Type 353. The seller doesn’t include much in terms of details besides the fact that it’s 100% complete, it’s registered, and it still features the original paint. But as the reader that submitted this to me said, “A 60 year old Czechoslovakian two stroke; what’s not to love?” Find this Jawa Type 353 for sale here on Craigslist in Malone, New York for $3,000.
