Re: AMCA meet Rhinebeck?

Tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. Still torn on two (2) things: which day to go and what bike to take. Both days are to have outstanding weather. If I go Friday everything will be fresh but there is no Air Show at the Aerodrome... Saturday there is. If I bring the Ural I will have room to buy stuff (t...

Re: Substitute for rubber plug

I have never heard of these plugs shrinking? I have, in setting the timing lost 2 of them in 10 years. Ya know... put them down someplace and they end up in the Bermuda Triangle. That's why I have 3-4 of them as spares (cost is minimal). Once you have spares you never seem to lose them again. Use du...

Re: My first Ural

That is one mean looking rig.
Are you planning on doing a lot of off-road adventures? If not get some street tires or at least 50-50's before your teeth chatter themselves out of your head.
Congrats, Good Luck and Ride Safe.

Re: engine locked up

What happened that it "locked-up".
Someone is selling an engine on SS right now I believe. A 2009.

Re: For Sale 2013 Gaucho Rambler $8000.

That's a great deal. How do you like that steering damper? :) Anyone want to buy my great running 2007 for $6000.00 so I can buy Sean's 2013 for $8000.00. That's how good of a deal this is for all of the "fence sticking up your a$$" folks waiting for the right deal to come along. Same for ...

Re: Corrosion Control

My current hack-body was originally Red. I bought it used from another member here. It had almost exactly the same bubbling as you had. The dealer (whoever that was?) changed it out for the owner. When I took it to get media blasted/sand blasted I got a call from the shop saying after taking the fir...

Re: Corrosion Control

2015 so powder coated body I assume. Feathering matching "paint" to powedercoat will be interesting.
They coated it at the factory with rust underneath. Not the first time we've seen this but yes, if it is under warranty I'd let the dealer take care of it.

Overfill, no big deal.
Underfill, a really big deal.

Re: My friend Scott K in CO (city on the side)

Definitely a bike/rig that shouldn't need any "fake news" about it. But now that it's out there... oh well!

Re: CL Find: '81 Neval 2WD

Pretty cool piece of history. The speedometer in MPH was the first thing that caught my eye and the Federal sticker.
I liked these bikes 30+ years ago but they were always a mystery. Then kinda disappeared.
Eventually when I got interested in Urals I'm sure it was a deja-vu moment from Nevel's.

I like that old Subaru. Looks like less little stars (representing factories) in their logo back them.

Re: AMCA meet Rhinebeck?

Getting closer. Still planning on Friday but Saturday is pulling at me as well because of the Air Show and the open to the public rides after-show at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome (which is actually in Red Hook). I checked their website and while there are regular rides after the shows on Saturdays an...
