Latest to jump on the retro-styling bandwagon – although possibly with more integrity than some – is Jawa.
The Czech, former Soviet bloc, manufacturer still produces utilitarian, budget, old-fashioned, two-stroke twin cylinder runabouts to this day, which have been long-time exclusively imported into the UK by F2 Motorcycles.
Now, this ‘new’ 350 Retro joins a range comprising 350 Classic, limited edition Military, faired Sport and a sidecar combination.
Styled like the classic Jawa 350s of the 1970s (although it probably wasn’t that difficult considering much of its specification has barely changed), the Retro features Jawa’s classic air-cooled twin and enclosed chain drive, retro styling such as the chromed tank and mudguards with modern disc brake and electric start.
It’s priced £3295. For more contact F2 at their new, larger premises near Wisbech. 01945 410165 or www.f2motorcycles.ltd.uk
