Jawa Hoods

Postby There is no try » Sat Nov 17, 2018 12:33 pm

Hi all,
What constitutes a 'large hood' Jawa? Looking on eBay sold items It seems to add a premium.
The leg says HK 1977.
I've measure the hood as just over 2 1/2 cm. Is that a 'large' one?
Cheers,

That's a large hood, have a look as this link to see a side by side comparison of the hood sizes, small, medium and large.

I've never noticed one type of hood being more valuable/collectable than the other, in my experience they all sell for pretty much the same amount, condition being the most important factor, and whether they come with or without their weapon.
