1966 Jawa single-cylinder motorcycle - "Simple, Isn't It?"

Simple, isn't it? You're looking at about the only moving parts in a single-cylinder Jawa. For its two-stroke design is based on simplicity - no timing gears, camshafts, push-rods, rocker arms, valves, valve springs nor valve guides to wear out. Just three moving parts here: a piston, rod and flywheel. (Well, there's four, if you really want to get technical and count the wrist-pin that joins the piston and conneting rod). Then there's a relative handful of bearings that support the crankshaft and connecting rod. But that's about all, so you're money and miles ahead with a Jawa... 1966 Jawa Single Cylinder Piston Rod Flywheel Motorcycle Ad available at CLICK THE PICTURE TO "BUY IT NOW"
