Blogger Roma Urraco spoke about another “time capsule” – a 1990 Soviet motorcycle with a stroller Jawa 350/638, which was preserved new after three decades. The “calibration” mileage of four kilometers was recorded on the odometer, the factory operating instructions and tools, as well as the 1991 documents, are included.
The motorcycle was purchased on January 18, 1991 for 1,100 rubles for commercial purposes: the owner planned to sell Java to Cuba, but failed to carry out her plan. The motorcycle stood unassembled in the factory box for twenty years, but in 2010 the box began to take up a lot of space and Java was assembled. They did not start the motorcycle: the bike remained in the garage, and the mistress kept the glove compartment and seat in the apartment.
Jawa version 350/638 “luxury” – one of the latest models of Czechoslovakian motorcycles that were supplied to the Soviet Union. The instance discovered in Poltava refers to versions with a sidecar: such motorcycles lack a side step, a right mirror and a holder for a passenger on one side. The fiberglass “cradle” Velorex-562 was purchased separately, but it was not attached to the bike body and was kept in its factory form: there are mounts, a rug, and a set of wrenches.
Jawa 350 motorcycles are one of the most dynamic bikes in the USSR. A two-cylinder in-line engine with a capacity of 343 cubic centimeters with a capacity of 27 horsepower allowed two-wheeled vehicles to accelerate to 125 kilometers per hour. However, the quality of the later Java models is low: the paintwork is weak, so even with the new technology there are chips.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the number of motorcycles manufactured by Java fell sharply, but the company was able to stay afloat and maintain the production of motorcycles of its own design with foreign motors.
