Huh??

Looks like an old late 60s, early 70s Jawa or CZ. They didn't change much from year to year, so it would be very difficult to narrow down. Gettin warm?

Hi Ur-knee & Jorko,

You guys are getting very close.

The country of manufacture is close to where CZ's are made. The country does end in "ian".

I thought that it could be an FN but was unable to find any pictures, that would make it Belgian,

I think another hint is required.

The year this motorcycle was made was 1956. It is a very important year for this country.
