Title: How nice is this ..
Post by: spooky on January 13, 2021, 10:05:55 PM
If you like a 2 stroke v Twin, feast your eyes on this beauty, I`m not sure who rode it in 1967 ,
I have struggled to get any more details so far, any help out there...

Lovely. It wasn't Bill Ivy was it? I know he rode for JAWA. In fact he got killed on one.

Looks like a very narrow included angle. Is it a true V twin or a pair of close coupled singles? It seems to have 2 separate crankcases given the 2 carbs.

No , not Bill Ivy, 1967 he was on Yamahas, the only Jawas he used were the 350. It`s possible it was never raced ?
