Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

Jet in Backyard?

Postby siberman1 » Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:10 pm

OK, we all have jokes about what Russians do or can not do. Jury-rig this, patch that, and so on.

What about building a complete jet of your own design, including your own design and made jet engine, for you hobby? Yes, there were some design/material flaws, but he works them out.

This thing is amazing!
