Yezdi Delux 1987 Model Modified To Look Like The Jawa Perak: Details

An owner of a retro, vintage 1987 Yezdi Delux has modified his motorcycle to make it look the modern day Jawa Perak. Mr Manjunath bought the 1987 model, and had it modified by a Mr Shamsher Ahmed for a grand total of Rs 1.5 lakh.

The modified Yezdi Delux features all the two-stroke mechanicals, but looks fairly modern. It features a similar matte blackish-grey paints scheme and a tan coloured seat as of the Jawa Perak, as one can see from images posted via Instagram.

Mr Manjunath said that quite a few components had to be locally fabricated. While the modification job does not look as polished as the factory built Jawa Perak, it does stand out, and does look like something modern Perak could have been inspired by.

The modern Jawa Perak was launched roughly a month ago, and is now open for bookings. Launched at Rs 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the bobber style motorcycle has generated a lot of interest. So much so that Jawa says that their website crashed because of the sheer volume of traffic.

The Jawa Perak is powered by a 334cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine that produces 30bhp of power and 31Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.

The Perak however, sprang during the days of Ideal Jawa India Ltd. - the company that manufactured two-stroke Jawa and Yezdi models at its Mysore facility between early 1960 until 1996.

The old Jawa 350 had a 344cc air-cooled two-stroke engine good for a humble 14bhp and was mated to a 4-speed gearbox.

General Trivia

While a majority of motorcycle enthusiasts across the country love, adore, cherish, and possibly own old Jawa and Yezdi motorcycle, few are aware of a connection between the two.

Ideal Jawa India Limited bought rights to the Jawa name from the brand's Czech parent company, and launched a Semi-Knocked Down version of the Jawa 250 until 1969.

The license to use the Jawa name ended in 1973, and Ideal Jawa India Limited starting manufacturing the Yezdi Model B line that shared the same engineering, platform, and styling as the Jawa models.

Ideal Jawa India Limtied was founded by Rustom Irani and Farrokh Irani who belonged to the Parsi community of Yazad, popularly known as Yezdi.

Thoughts About The Modified Yezdi Delux 1987

We're impressed with this modified Yezdi Delux. What's refreshing is that the modifications are not over the top. The owner and the builder have both retained the simplicity of the old school 1987 model. Fantastic job!
