Identity crisis

Postby Kirov750 » Thu Dec 03, 2015 9:08 am

Would people be kind and help me identify my Dnepr K750, K750m, MW750 or MW750m ?

For its right spare parts and be less confusing in the future :mrgreen:

On its papers it says MB 750. But some think it is not. YOU sir are an expert. I would be glad to know :)

I am curious about those thick looking pipes on the front wheel and why is there 5 on the front tyre and 1 on the back ... is it to reinforce the wheel ?

I don't see a brake on the driven sidecar wheel so I would call it "mostly MV750" because K750 never had driven sidecar wheel and later 2WD Dnepr models have sidecar wheel brake. At least you know that the sidecar wheel gearbox is definitely MV750 part. At least that one part. :D

They appear to be friction fit by tightening the nut. Looks like the rear wheel had more based on the marks in the hub.

The so called pipes in the front wheel appear to be threaded telescoping jacking type apparatus. I've never seen anything like it on a bike before - in my 50 years of riding European bikes.. My guess is that they are used to strengthen the wheel. I would expect that they are permanently attached & not pressure fitted - as a loose one could easily break your face. Like to hear more about those things.
