Another Proud Owner of a Vintage Bike

The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame held another silent auction during this past weekends Motorcycle Show, for this donated 1966 Jawa CZ 175cc motorcycle.

This little beauty caused quite a stir with the numerous Europeans who grew up riding Jawas and other people who wanted to know “what is that thing?”  Our favourite item to show off was the shifter that doubles as a kick-starter.

The countdown to 4:00
SOLD!
