A Jawa is a small being indigenous to the desert regions of the planet Tatoine. They scour the landscape looking for discarded metal, vehicles, robots, etc.. to rebuild or customize for resale. You could say They are the planets hotrodders.


Actually, its a bike from the Checz Republic. They've been making the bikes since the 20's and are pretty known for their flat track race bikes. I've learned they were very well built and dependable from what I've seen online. Once we sell the RF900R, I'm going to bring this one to the shop and get it back on the road.
