This lamp sure is a new one for any home. Great for all motorcycle enthusiast. If you did not recognize it, the lamp itself is the headlight of a motorcycle. It is the headlight from a Jawa CZ motorcycle. Jawa Moto is a Czechoslovakian motorcycle and moped manufacturer founded in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1929 by Franti?ek Janecek, who also bought the motorcycle division of Wanderer. The name JAWA is from the first two letters of Janecek and Wanderer. In the 1950s, JAWA was one of the top motorcycle manufacturers in the world. They exported their P?r?k model to over 120 countries. The tripod stand is made out of wood. The height of the tripod can be adjusted by the wing nuts on each of the legs. The lamp can extend to be as high as 54 inches but sits around 30 inches at its shortest. This lamp comes with the stand, the light, and the wire. The lamp needs assembly but it is very straightforward. Set up the stand and attach the light with the included nuts. Plug in the light using the adapter and then there will be light wherever its aimed. Just a couple of tightening here and there and it's set to light up a room.
