Re: Why is this kid messing with atf?

My father remembered when full auto Thompson SMG's were on sale in local hardware stores, any adult could buy one & walk out.
The law restricting full auto sales was in reaction to the number of innocent bystanders killed by drive-by gang warfare shootings.

Re: Seat opinions.

I happened to have this British made Lycette replica saddle. They are wider & longer, the pebble grain leatherette covering is put over lots of springs. The seat has 2 rear suspension springs as well. I had to modify the front pinion configuration of the Ural seat stanchion. It is very comfortab...

Re: How many of us are active hams?

Always loved to listen to shortwave since childhood, & have had several interesting ones, including a collection of Zenith Trans-oceanic's. In the 1980's a friend gave me a huge working tube RCA communications receiver & transmitter. I visited a couple of Atlanta Radio Club meetings, & f...

Re: Different Ural models

Rebuilding telescopic forks is not one of my favorite jobs - much rather replace a worn shock. I might add; that IMO the Ural leading link IS A BETTER DESIGN than the old BMW LL. On my second ROAD tourist with LL fork & 19" interchangeable, drum brake, wheels, running AVON SM tires. I'm ver...

Re: Sharpening Things...

Pipe smoking can be satisfying in the same way. I gave up both, wear a beard, & trim with a cheap BIC razor.
I also enjoy sharpening using a set of varying grades of diamond impregnated, perforated steel plates. super simple - but NOT sharpening razors.
NICE COLLECTION !

Re: Rain Riding, gripe and complain

If you had an enclosed box trailer for your truck, you could get there in comfort, then pull out the bikes when the rain stops. Surprising how age dampens enthusiasm for rain riding. I wear oiled cotton riding gear, & may get rained on - but I never leave home on a ride when when it's raining al...

Fastenal never would sell me just one of anything - wanted me to buy the whole box. I don't go there anymore.

Re: WTB: 2wd. Fly and Ride back to Louisiana

I have owned a Dnepr & 2 Urals & am a competent mechanic. I also have found "murphy's law" to be real through 70 years of life experiences. Therefore I recommend you ship it home, way cheaper if you consider dealing with possibility of breaking down in the middle of nowhere, gettin...

Re: Help identifying my bike

The long Aluminum lever on the transmission is EXACTLY the same one as a Chinese CJ LONG REVERSE LEVER I own, & the Transmission resembles older CJ'sI have seen. HMMMM ? Any Chinese characters stamped on it anywhere ? Could it be a OHV CJ ? CJ parts are reasonable & obtainable from a few goo...

Re: Tire black trouble.....

There is a trick I have used for years to renew the blackness of tire side walls on cars & street bikes (no body cares on off road machines) I use an ACETONE dampened rag to wipe the sidewalls. Works amazingly well - really makes them look new. Wear hand protection (carcinogenic). Use only outdo...

Re: Other places to find Urals?

Watch out for scammers. be suspicious of to good to be true ads. be sure not to do business with anyone you can't at least speak to & question about the bike. when you demand this scammers won't respond. Always best to see the bike. Non - runners (cars & bikes) are "PARTS" so if wh...

Re: Info on a basket-case (with pics). Thanks!

BTW, Dnepr's are UKRANIAN. Dnepr has been out of business for a few years. Parts are available, one of the members here "Arbalest" comes to mind. Many frame/sheet metal parts from Chinese CJ will fit, even some Ural bits. Another member, Gobium appreciates Dnepr's, he has excellent taste +...
