My motorbikes (and some others)I'm not going to make any kind of portal here. These pages are my own collection. I have so much other things to do, including my work, that I will clean and sort this material very slowly. There will still happend changes every now and then. If you find something of use, please help yourself. It would be nice to get email and new material. Inform me if here is something commercial or copyrighted or if you want to use some of my material commercially.
I had two 'pappa-Tunturi' (some parts left) in daily use 365 days per year.
Take a notice that a winter means here 5-50 cm snow and 5-35 centigrades cold
for at least 3 months. Autumn is just cold and wet. Summer is short and most
often three weeks after midsommer ;). I had also warious other mopeds in my
carage waiting in pits and pieces. There was for example 'big' Zyndap (some odd
parts left), Jawa 50 (still there), Hopeasiipi (Some parts left), Vespa (sold).
These mopeds I found from our summercottage. I'm not going to restaurate
them. So, if you are interested...
A Zundap -58. Has found a new carage.
My father owned two Jawa CZ's: CZ scooter and CZ Dreidraroller. Both were terminated in those days, when the value of a JAWA was nil here in Finland. Various parts can still be found in our cellar: Motors, exthaust, electronics, wheels...
And of course the manuals (I will scan them here allthough they need a huge amount of space:
Dreidraroller Deutch, CZ Scooter Deutch, 353 Finnish):

It was about year 1974 I left the mopeds behind me. I found a blue Jawa 250,
-1959 and bought it with 1000Fim (~160 Euro). The bike was in daily use 9
months a year and saw 16000 km all over the Scandinavia. I left the bike -1977
to our summer cottage.
17.12.2007 I got this email:
Hello! I am selling in Saint-Petersburg Jawa's motorbikes new and low used spare parts (for old models such as Jawa 350/360-00 or 559) But I also go in Finland sometimes and have an opportunity to deliver them in Finland. Some of them you can see here http://foto.mail.ru/mail/jawa350360/ Costs is much lower than at Jawashop.com for example.And all of spare parts were produced in 70's years. I saw an Jawa 353 on your web-page and so make a decision to write this information for you. Best regards,Anton.

The first Speedfight was golden like this one in the picture. It was SpeedFight II with the liquid cooled motor.
Now our princess is gettin in the age. I bought another Speedfight for her. This is red and aircooled.
KYMCO ZINGnot for sale anymore!This bike came here when my wife sold her car. She got this bike and some money. She doesn't drive bikes herself, I have my Honda and our children are too small for it.
I had some small ad's in local NewsPaper and we sold Zing for some money and a -99 Peugeot Speedfight 50cc scooter.

I have allways liked slowly running motors. If only Harley had kardan, it might be fine. Guzzi has kardan and simple V2. It sounds good and feels right. In V65C there if power enough for me and it handles well so far as I have had possibilities to test it. I bought it in the autumn when the weather was just getting cold, so I didn't get much kilometers.
This Guzzi is in critical limit. With 650CC it costs 1280 Eur/year while 750cc costs 1524 Eur/year as insurances. I have next summer 25% bonus in bikes and 70% in cars, altough I have about 40000km experience with motorcycles.
When I bought my first car I moved my bonus there. Somehow the law feels stupid here.
Yamaha ViragoI have never had a Virago. I have tested briefly a '250 but no more. I had to make this entry because I got some pictures of 535 to my hands (1.5MB zip).
