I am into Eastern Bloc shit (I own a Trabant 601, Yugo, Tomos TX50) so this JAWA is right up my alley.
Well OK Slovenia (former part of Yugoslavia) and Yugoslavia itself wasn't exactly an Eastern Bloc nation but you get the idea.
I was hoping to trade the guy a Snapper lawnmower, air compressor or something I had laying around I was not using but he wants $100 for it. I have not looked at it. I don't know if it even runs.
After discovering what parts that are available for my Kinetic TFR are either used, interchanges with a Ciao, repaired or borrow from another moped. I'm not sure if I want to get something else hard to find parts for. So how many of you JAWA guys are out there? What about this moped? I take it, it is not variated but does it weigh less than a Kinetic and go up hills better before the clutch starts to slip?
I found Tomos Targa for $350. Looks like it's in good condition.
Not a big fan of the Targa (would rather have a Sprint of ST) but I do like the up hill torque my A35 engine and two speed transmission has on my TX50 minibike.
I suppose what I am getting at is if you live in an area with alot of hills, I suppose the Targa would be the best choice.
Maybe once I get my Kinetic running again, I'll know if it will make it up some of the hills I plan on taking it up.
If I want to do alot of pedaling, I'd ride my 20 lb Mongoose instead of my 100 lb Kinetic..
