Frantisek Janecek began manufacturing  motorcycles in 1927 in order to diversify the interests of his arms factory. These were German Wanderer motorcycles made under licence. In 1929 he rebranded the 500cc machine with the name JAWA, derived from the first two letters of the words "Janacek" and "Wanderer". During the mid 1930s the company also produced a range of cars and utility vehicles.
