Below is a link from a company called F2 motorcycles in Wisbech. They are the agents for Jawa bikes. Some interesting thumpers! Interestingly these are from the Czech Republic. Apparently Mahindra (who also own the  BSA name) also own the Jawa name in India....how bizarre!

They've been around for a long time and used to specialise in Iron Curtain flat twinns - Dnepr, Ural etc. They also sell Brisk sparkplugs which are alleged to be less sensitive to carbon build up than others.

well i never, i used to work out of wisbech for many years ... has a rich motorcycling history... not least that Barry Sheene lived there during his formative racing years, and home of Mick Walker racer, author & mentor.
and there used to be an MV racing team based there, who had a dyno that i used from time to time.
might give F2 a look at some point, they're just up the road from a good friends house.
