Like other motorcycle companies, Jawa has its roots in the armaments industry, formed in 1929 when Czechoslovakia's National Arms factory diversified into motorcycle manufacture after obtaining the rights to a design from the German Wanderer firm. Company founder Frantisek Janacek combined the first two letters his last name and the first two letters in Wanderer to create the Jawa marque. In 1949 Jawa's operations were combined with those of rivals CZ, and throughout the succeeding two decades the consolidated company's main claim to fame was an outstanding run of success in the International Six Days Trial enduro and international motocross. Using a mixture of Jawa and CZ machines, Czechoslovakia first won the ISDT in 1947 and would go on to take a further six titles up to 1962.

This 1957 Jawa 250 from the Mork collection is a Type S353 street-going replica of the works ISDE bikes, with under-engine bash bar, rear knobby tire and numberplates attached, though it appears a previous owner has retrofitted the front wheel and fender from a Jawa 250 road bike. The Jawa has been started and ridden during Mork's ownership, though as of late the bike has been in storage.
