1969 Vostok C364

Built by Moscow-based Central Construction and Experimental Bureau with help from Motokov (Jawa) in Czechoslovakia, the Vostok 350 and 500 fours raced outside of Russia only infrequently, and always in Communist-controlled countries. Loosely based on the Honda/MV/Gilera designs, these crudely built and unreliable machines disappeared in 1969, outclassed by European and Japanese machinery. These machines were the most technically advanced racing motorcycles that Russia ever produced.

Not true they raced solely in commie countries. From 62 –64 the name was CKB. Later Vostok. 1963 4th in the 500 in Finnish GP on CKB I’ve seen Sevastianov and Kiisa in the 1963 Dutch TT in the wednesday training on CKB. A week later they showed up in the Belgian GP at Francorchamps. 1964 Kiisa 3rd 350 Finnish GP, he also entered at GP Monza – Italy, Sevastianov got 6th 1965 Sevastianov 3rd in the Gran Premio Adriatico – Italy Between 65 – 68 the real Vostoks where withdrawn and they used 350 CZ bikes with Vostok emblem. 1968 Finnish GP: Kiisa on Vostok 500 passed Agostini in the 3rd round but got engine troubles. Sevastianov ended 4th.
