Origin of Javanese names
Frantisek Janecek, the man born in Klaster on 28 January 1878, is a specialist engineer in combat equipment. During the First World War, he invented a number of innovations in the field of weapons, including a hand grenade that was later used by Czechoslovak soldiers.
After the war, the demand for weapons decreased. Janecek plays the brain to be able to earn enough money. He then looked at the two-wheeled automobile industry. In 1929, noting the Java Motorcycles page, Janecek bought the Wanderer motorcycle company from Winklhofer & Jaenicke.
Janecek no longer uses the Wanderer brand. He created a new brand, namely Java. Acronym of Janecek-Wanderer. It is certain that the name Java has nothing to do with Java in Indonesia.
Janecek's first project was to complete the development of the Wanderer 500 motorcycle. Janecek's hand was later named Java 500 OHV.
To strengthen the development process of a Javanese motorbike, Janecek recruited an engineer, also a former British rider, GW Patchett. From 1930, it was thought that Patchett was at the head of a Javanese motorbike designer.
Patchett's experience as a pilot as well as his expertise in the field of machines contributed to the manufacture of the second Java product. To adapt to the economic slowdown in the post-war Czech world, Patchett made motorcycles with small engines that can be sold at affordable prices.
