I bought this bike back in the 80s,the PO said he got sick of being cut off and not seen,so he made it Hi Vis. So then he ended up tail ending a car.

It got painted classic black,odd bike, the shift was also the kick start. The lever twisted up and then you kicked it,but don't let the lever fly back,or you'd be in gear and grappling for the clutch. Jawa 350.

I found it reliable,good low end torque,cornered well,but suffered from poor brakes and it sure wasn't in the same street as the RD 350 LC Yamaha. Surprisingly good on petrol.
