jawa babetta revived..sort of

Yet another moped revived... A 70s jawa babbetta due to a broke solder wire on the low tension sensing coil, bad timing, and a bad thyristor...

Ah the sound of spring...... moped reving good.!

Nice! I love 207s! I especially like the sound the exhaust makes while decelerating under load. WAAAALALALALALALALAAAAAaaaaaa...... Coolest moped noise ever!

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

Record sound to share with all

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

Looks just like mine, only less rust.

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

why is there no tension on your pedal chain?

John, I see missing front forks dust covers "gators"- if you need them let me know, could bring them and another parts back from Slovakia in May when I visit there

So sue me..

the pedal chain needs adjustment for sure....

Vlado.. please advise me.. honestly I want to keep this bike , like completely stock,,, and run it. I guess I dont know what part you are talking about..

I pulled the rear wheel and replaced the inner tube. the configuration of the rear wheel is a bit odd. One side of the axle nut is fixed and you have to bull the nut axle assembly out . That is odd. But I did replace the bad inner tube and tommorrow I will fix the wiring etc.

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

What did you do to fix the Thyristor? My Transistor had the red Tranzimo unit that was included on the older 207's. I had to completely remove it and replace it with the cdi from a Honda Spree. Did you just find another Thyristor or did you replace it with something else?

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

that should be in my collection not yours

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

The article in the wiki is great for making your own thyristor, the hardest part is finding a case to put it in! seriously, both cheap, and effective.

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

You know, a spring loaded chain tensioner would be a nice improvement.

Re: jawa babetta revived..sort of

no the best improvement you could make to that Jawa is to give it to me

thyristor/spark woes.

The bike I had originally had the tranzimo , which may actually have been functional. At some point in fustration I trashed that . I failed to check continuity of the ignition coil which had a bad solder connection.

Assumming the tranzimo was bad, I bought the stator ring for the thyristor coil combo. and a coil and a thyristor (still have and they are for sale).

because those did not work, I bought on ebay the thyristor coil combined unit they still sell in slovak land. when that did not work, upon Vlados advice I checked the ig coil on the stator ring and found the wire was not connected to the solder connection, so I resoldered that and then everything worked..

I also have the parts for the make it yourself thyristor..
