Do I have a Jawa Babetta or an x30

Lea Ann Martin /

I was recently given what I thought was a Jawa x30, the dates on the front light say 1971 and the metal plate says 1971 as does something else I looked at (cannot remember where on the moped now) anyway...the metal plate in front of the carb says "Jawa x-30" the plate is black and the writting is in blue, the rest of the moped is red.

I have been reading sites about Jawas and some of them indicate that the X series started in 1981. I wonder if that cover plate in front of the Carb and gear box is a replacement part and my moped is a Babetta.

If it is I would probably rather have the Babetta cover plate and trade out the X-30 cover.

Does anyone know what this moped is by looking and by the dates I have given?

Thanks

well no need to reply.....upon checking the front plate on the frame again....I realize now it says 1981! Not 1971 as I thought before.....never count on the guy who gives you the moped to correctly read the metal plate on the frame.

It's an x-30 for sure.
