Welcome to my web site, which is dedicated to the mopeds and lightweight motorcycles 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 and small motorcycles that were sold in the UK under the JAWA name. I have created this site after receiving many requests for information about these mopeds, from all over the world. I hope that anyone who shares my interest in these machines will find something useful within these pages.
The section tabs on the navigation bar at the top of each of the main pages should be self explanatory. The “Manuals” section gives access to lots of books, adverts, brochures and other information, all divided into sections by model type. This site is always changing as I add additional material as I find it. Have a look around and look out for the items that I have added. If anyone has any material, such as photos, manuals, brochures etc. 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.
The Coke advert starring a Babetta that was here, has been moved to my Reports page.
