Any Classic Motorbike Collectors? Possibly CZ Motorbikes???

Hey all,

are there any classic motorbike collectors on the forum?

I have uncovered a "Barn Find" collection of frames, fenders, fuel tanks and handlebars which seemingly come from CZ motorbikes.
I am assuming they are from the 60's or 70's.

Looking for a direction what to do with them and hoping to find someone with superior knowledge.

See pictures below.

I have to make a decision what is to be done with them this weekend.

located in Zürich.

Thanks

Eli

Are all the frames the same? I might be interested in 1 of each item depending on location and cost.

I am hopefully making an inventory of what I have this weekend.

As far as I know so far, the frame shown is a Jawa Perak.
Fuel tanks are for a CZ model B 125 or model C 125/150. from late 40's - 50's

Am still gathering information and will let you all know.

Eli

wow.. that tank is a work of art....

IMHO you're best putting a few items on ebay (or a specialist forum) to gauge the price / level of interest

Just frames and tanks? No engines submerged in oil?

I don't think you'll have much luck moving that many frames. Unless someone crashed their frame, you can always strip+blast+coat old frames and they're almost as good as new, as long as the bearing surfaces weren't ruined...

The gas tanks would probably be much easier to move, as those are irreplaceable in the original new condition like you have.

In any case, great find. I miss my old Jawa, I'd totally build one up again. Always leaves one to think what else is hiding in barns around the world... maybe some classic Japanese two stroke madness

Hey all,

Thanks for the feedback, I currently have an offer for the whole lot.
In other parts of the world there is more of a following for this brand.

Let you know what happens!

I sold them as bulk package, the items will probably come up and available through the Czech parts dealers, thats where they were destined!

Thanks for your input.
