I see, cheers for that. I was thinking surely not, as even here in Asia we're getting hit with Euro 3 regulations requirements for new bikes.

They still allow 2 strokers in the UK? (one of the linked vids said "2016 Jawa UK spec"). I thought I had a "new" 2 stroke in my 04' Suzuki 50.
Short answer is no.

There was a loophole that allowed exemption from Euro 3 for a limited number of small volume sales, but that ended in 2017.

Whether something similar exists that allows exemption from Euro 4, I honestly don't know.

If F2 motorcycles still have 2 stroke Jawas for sale they may be pre-registered in 2017.

Turn your volume up to 11 (c. Nigel Tuffnell) for the full experience. 8-)

I have a mate with the last of the 2t Jawa's imported by Dave Angel at F2 motorcycles - even has electric start - it's very smooth to ride; torquey too.

Mind you he also has a Rickman Interceptor and that tries to pull your arms off with a sniff of throttle.

I have an Interceptor motor on the bench at the moment - the crank is HUGE; note the new C90 type alternator flywheel....

BTE that tool on the right that looks like a T is a telescope gauge - not as accurate as a full on bore gauge but will get you very close and has the advantage that you use the same micrometer for both the bore and the piston.

Were you in The Wurzels, cap'n?
The other thing that bothered me about The Wurzels, as an amateur economist, was this.

Even with 63 acres, let alone the original 20, a brand new combine harvester is gross over-capitalisation! :shock:

Rather than buying a combine harvester he'd be better off hiring one in that was under-used elsewhere. At certain times he'd be better off harvesting manually using a migrant workforce.

This cavalier attitude to financing spoiled the whole song for me. :lol:

Sorry if you've had any sleepless nights over this, cap'n but I too have been a bit restless lately.
I still can't get my head around why I walked 500 miles and then walked another 500 miles just to fall down at the door of this girl I was seeing years and years ago. Don't know what came over me.

I quite agree. Also there is the training aspect to consider. In the 80's I was offered a job as a farm labourer in Lincolnshire (twas a "Good Life" type of idea). Drove a Claas Dominator across a field of wheat then looked back and realised I was doomed to life in an office!

Did end up with a ride on lawnmower though - I Know What I Like. :lol:
