Legendary two wheeler brand Jawa made its re-entry into the Indian market few years ago. The manufacturer currently has three models in the market. There is Jawa Classic, Jawa 42 and Jawa Perak bobber. The motorcycles became quickly popular among buyers and even had a long waiting period. The Jawa motorcycles directly competes Royal Enfield Classic 350, Honda Highness 350 in the segment. In the last couple of years we have seen several modified examples of Jawa and Jawa 42 in the past. Here we have another video of a Jawa 42 motorcycle that has been beautifully modified into a off-road adenture motorcycle
The video has been uploaded by Infoarun vlogs on their youtube channel. The Bike has been completely modified by Mr. Onkarpreet Singh. He has done several modifications based on Jawa motorcycles in the past. Starting with the front, the headlight of the Jawa 42 has been replaced with projector LED headlamps with integrated turn indicators in it. There is a small windshield which gives enhances the look of the motorcycle. The stock turn indicators are retained at the front.
Coming down, the front mudguard of the Jawa 42 has been replaced with an adventure bike unit. The overall height of the bike has been increased by 5-10mm and that has completely changed the overall stance of the motorcycle altogether. The height of the bike has increased because the height of the suspension has been increased both at the front and rear. The front fork even gets gaiters for better protection.
The wheels on this Jawa 42 are the same as standard but the rim has been powder coated to protect it from rust. The rim is wrapped with 18 inch dual purpose tyres. Moving up handle bar has been panted in black and the odometer has been repositioned to the center. The handle bar also gets protector guards to justify the look. The fuel tank remains the same but it now gets custom made tank grip. As the overall height of the bike has increased, the seat height has also increased which comes in handy while you are off-roading on a bike. The seat is a single piece unit as before.
The rear of the bike now gets a short fender that has been painted in black. The stock tail light has been replaced with an aftermarket LED unit and the turn indicators are now placed under the seat. A luggage rack has also been installed at the rear which will also act as a grab rail to the pillion. The short fender exposes the wide 17 inch dual purpose tyre at the rear. The rear steel rims has also been powder coated in black. The stock silencer has been replaced with an aftermarket unit which is shorter than the stock unit and produces a good note. The time taken to complete this project is around 12 days and the overall cost of this modification is around Rs 40-45,000.
Mr. Singh also mentioned that, he is now planning to modify a Jawa motorcycle into a Cafe Racer. If anyone is interested is planning to modify their Jawa motorcycles, then can directly get in touch with Mr. Singh on 9810454349.
