Pays your money, takes your chances...don't really need to understand what he is saying, you'll get it.

Love the front brake backing plate...

Does not appear on IE. Won't play on Chrome. Need to copy and past URL and play directly in YouTube.

Poor guy does not look like he can afford to get hosed on a wrecked front end. I thought I heard him say what sounded like Poland. So, he may have gotten this from Poland.

He's wearing military pants. Might have been the wrong guy to screw over.

Y'all didn't notice the backing plate? The one for a hydraulic front end with that dandy modification?

+1 also. Necessity is the Mother of Invention.

I have a Dnepr telescopic anchor plate that I'm not using ahem. It worked better than the Ural brake/backing plate that was on the leading link I bought....hmmm, maybe I will be using it.

What I find amazing is not that this gentleman was unhappy with his Ural part. But with all that driving, I didn't see one drunk Russian driving a diesel electric train on the wrong side of the road with a cow catcher, full of dead cows, dodging a falling meteorite. Very disappointing.

What makes you think I was trying to impress? This part of the forum is for useless stuff, like this. Sorry you don't get it, the rest of us apparently do...

The fork is from Tcheliabinsk region (400km south of Irbit), he got it for 7000rub (99$) +20$ for the transport to Kaliningrad.
He will recheck all the fork including the welds.

I have seen this guy before on Oppozit.ru with his ride from Kaliningrad to Crimea.

He just posted part 3 of the that trip on YouTube! He makes a pretty good video, and is helping me pick up some Russian for my next trip over there.
