Offered from The Forshaw Speedway Collection
c.1972 Jawa-'Briggo' 500cc Speedway Racing Motorcycle
Engine no. MM 6859

• Described as having a four valve conversion
• Possibly used by Barry Briggs whilst competing in Africa
• Part of the Forshaw Collection since 1989

By 1972 Barry Briggs had been building his business very successfully, securing the ESO/Jawa concession from Alec Jackson in 1966, Alec having gained the concession only the year before. Barry secured Ove Fundin's dealership interests as well, providing Briggs with a considerable business. All this had restricted his riding career but by 1972 he wanted to gain more track time, in April saying, "This is going to be my year...I am going to get back to the top".

This 1972 Jawa is well presented and a very original example entering the Forshaw collection in 1989. The museum text which accompanied it described it as having a four valve conversion and that it was used by Barry in 30 races whilst he was in Africa, winning 14 races and finishing 2nd in four and 3rd in two.

Whilst we know Barry and Richard were great friends, we have not been able to locate evidence to corroborate that this was a machine he raced. Further research may prove fruitful. Accompanied with the receipt dated 16/8/1989 and extracted articles relevant to Barry Briggs mostly dating from the 1970s. The mechanical condition is not known and therefore we recommend rec-commissioning and/or restoration to a greater or lesser extent.
