lots of speedway websites around.

try Matt Jones Motorcycles as he is a Jawa Dealer (in Melton). John Titman in qld is an ex speedway rider so maybe worth a shot if you can get to speak to him.

Be careful with that front brake.  It'll put her over the bars in a flash

sounds like that's from Experience Roger.

Call me Hoony, everyone does.

yes agree with all your comments.....there's a time and place and your correct.

so true about young people running places these days, owners exploiting the young. look at any take away place like KFC, Macca's.

I had one of those back in the day and also the model before raced them hard in MX ( what was i thinking) and Desert races. fast bike at the time for a 250cc 4T.

did the 6 hour pony express with a mate and when we finished i dropped the oil, it was boiling on the ground i couldn't belive how hot it was.
i always ran castrol GPS i think it was, exy oil for the time. have some old pics but don't have them hosted. had a lot of fun on that bike.

are you in Melbourne?

RK Engineering (in Garfield) is a Guru on engine case repairs, specialises in big sections broken or even missing and re machining.
cosmetic work like this would be easy for him to weld and clean up.

Uh huh. I have customers coming in wringing their hands stating that they've paid too much for a bike and that I should sell them parts cheaper or else they won't make money on the resale. Yep, it's all my fault then.

hope you tell em to fork right off.
