I've got a stockpile. I'll PM you.
Replied, Thank you. Exactly why I posted on here figuring someone had a horde-stockpile-junk bin! I know I have parts from bikes that I haven't owned in 20 years wondering what I'll ever do with.

This?

Yes, and also the rubber "cushion" and the bracket that bolts to the seat bars

Edit - Taking a shot at finding it used from someone who's got a stockpile vs buying new.

ISO - Driver Tractor Seat MOUNT

Picked up some inexpensive parts off a guy locally parting out a 2003 Tourist, one of which was a F/R tractor seat setup but he did not have the driver seat MOUNT from the bike to the seat. Anyone have a decent used one available, plus shipping to 46321.

Thanks

Re: What is YOUR average yearly miles?

I have this argument with a ridding buddy all the time... I'm in construction so summer is not the best time to take off and get big road trips in and he just got home from a 3k mile jaunt to OK & MT. He will regularly ride more miles than me, but I ride more often as I commute to work daily on one ...

Re: steering

What is your intended riding style? For mostly street riding a Retro is said to have a more compliant ride and no more difficult to steer. The retro has its own unique frame, so the steering geometry isn't a direct apples to apples comparison. For off-road use the leading link separates the suspensi...

Re: One new style sidecar side curtain for sale.

Some folks have balked at the $300 I charged for a carpet set. But go check out the prices on 100 yard spools of carpet binding and the price of 50 yard spools of Velcro. And 168 size sungard marine poly thread is quite expensive too. Add in a whole day of labor and I wasn't exactly making a mint h...

Ural Part Out - Chicago CL

Not my add, and no affiliation.

Re: Newb questions

Randy's rebuilt the front end of my '07 Tourist a few years back. They were a Victory dealership and still lean towards those bikes when it comes to service. They picked up Zero electrics & Ural when Polaris pulled Victory and they weren't big enough to get Indian. They are a "serviceable" Ural deal...

Re: 2012 638LW Alumna Trailer for sale $1100

Nice trailer and if you lived closer to me, I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Better excuse than mine; I left a company based in Cedar Rapids after multiple "difference of opinions" on how to run our Chicago office, I vowed never to set foot near there again. Nice trailer, if I weren't already running aro...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Drove it down to gas up. When I took off the gas cap (learned not to use the key and/or lock it) I got a bad surprise. The paint had bubbled up around the gas tank opening. I have read this is a known issue. So because the 2018 GearUp is so low mileage I pop the gas cap on a regular basis to keep f...

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Sandwich run to the local food truck base of operation. I called ahead as they still only do curbside delivery. They always ask what kind of vehicle you’re in so I just said an old green motorcycle with a sidecar. The young lady running out orders took my picture. I had to order hockey equipment fo...

Re: Rear Brake Problem - Not Really Solved....

So the issue came back after less than 100 miles of riding. Took the rear wheel off again and I think the problem has finally shown itself. There is a crack in the housing where the brake cam passes through the final drive. There is a lot of play up & down on the cam probably allowing the shoes to t...
