Welcome to my web site, which is dedicated to the mopeds produced in Czechoslovakia, and later Slovakia, and sold world wide under the names JAWA and BABETTA. Also included is some information on some other brands of moped produced in Czechoslovakia.
I am John Woods and I live in a rural part of North Wales, in the UK. I have owned, and been interested in JAWA and CZ motorcycles for some years and I have a particular interest in the mopeds which were sold in the UK under the JAWA name. I have created this site after receiving many requests for information about these mopeds, and for help with problems, from all over the world. Whilst I can not say that I am an expert, I hope that anyone who shares my interest in these machines may find something useful within these pages.
This site is a “work in progress” and I will try to add additional material to the site as it becomes available. If anyone reading this has any material, such as photos, manuals, or stories that you think would be a useful addition to the site, please contact me and I will be pleased to include it. Also continue to contact me if you have a specific question not already answered on the site, and I will do my best to help.
