1995 (or mid 1990s) Ural model type???

Postby uralmaine » Tue Feb 09, 2016 6:42 pm

I purchased the sidecar in the photo below a few months back. The previous owner said he bought the bike/sidecar together and then sold the bike (had seized engine) separately and removed the sidecar. I then bought the sidecar and here I am. Sidecar frame is solid, while the body will need some sand blasting and new paint.

I am trying to figure out what model sidecar this is, or the model of the bike/sidecar combo before they were separated. I have heard different things from different people regarding what model this could be. The PO thought it was a 1995 but not exactly sure. Any input would be great, mostly out of curiosity, but in case I need any sidecar parts would be nice to know exact model info.

Thanks!

Also, this will be mounted to the 1100gs pictured next to it.

One more quick question...When searching for a tonneau cover is it simply 2013 and newer and then universal for those older than 2013?

Other than the forward tonneau mounting tabs change in 013(?) I don't think there's any tub design differences other than 1 or 2WD. Yours was off a whatever year(pre-013) 2WD because of the sidecar driveshaft tunnel.

Looks like an Italia which was a model sold by CMSI from around 1996-1998. Tubs were all identical throughout this time except for how they were mounted. 2WD bikes had higher tubs with the rubber "snowmen" fixed to the underside of the trunk. 1WD bikes had the "snowmen" sitting inside the recess visible in the rear of your picture to lower the center of gravity.

You'll have a blast with that mounted to the R1100GS. I built and rode an R1150GS-Ural outfit for ten years before coming back to the foil proper.

thanks for the additional info. I was riding a 1150/dnepr rig a few years ago and really liked it so I am sure this will be a sweet set up once its done. I haven't had the chance to try riding a full ural set up yet but I am intrigued and hope to try one soon.
