Re: The 2010 Green Patrol - $5950 - Gone Uraling

I have entirely too much Ural in my shop. IMG_20180819_144632.jpg Not too much Ural, Shop's too small. :lol: Time for an addition or annex. :D GLWS! Happy trails, Jaybird Plenty of space, room for one more at least! Betcha I could get 2 more in there! :foilhead: But I feel your pain, starting to fe...

Re: Florida Purchase / Payoff / Title question

I know what Harry was in Pittsburg for...but it would probably be rude to spill the beans, but...no, I won't do it...will let Harryball do that...will say this, next time the three of us ride together, everyone's spare tire (unless I am on Myrtle or the Harley) will fit each others bikes...that is a...

Re: North Georgia Help Needed!

Where in North Georgia? Near Helen could be Cleveland, Suches, Gainesville, Hiawasee... I am in Macon and have a twin-max. Saying that, I pre-balance the old fashioned Beemer way. Place my hand on one carb so I can feel when it moves when throttle turns and look at the other. When I think they both ...

Re: Left me stranded with a no-spark that healed itself...

Check the leads to the battery and main ground to the bike...simple stuff first. One should really use the big red switch. It's kinda like the front brake, so many old tales... Have seen more than one motorcycle (and that includes Urals, Beemers and Harleys) start or fire when the key switch was tur...

Re: International Ural Ride Day - September 8

Well, caught me by surprise, but really glad I don't have to worry about keeping up a web page and database during a hurricane this year. Matter of fact, we can do without the head on collision and the hurricane this year!

I don't know what the average is, but have 102K on my Retro and the valves, springs and assorted bits have never been out of her. Rocker arms replaced/rebuild, but no smoke, compression fine and ask anyone who rides with me, has no problem keeping up.
What year?

The new IZH e-bike! I hope they do well, but still an electric bike with all the pluses and minuses that go with it.

Re: Dnepr (?) on Ebay in New Orleans

The wheels are fine, but when they were new DOT did not like them for reasons we would find stupid, will just leave that there. Nothing wrong with them and spokes are available... I have a set for Myrtle, with Russian tires, ready to mount as soon as the tires on the "legal" wheels are done...

Re: Dnepr (?) on Ebay in New Orleans

Like Pro w@$# said, it's a 650cc Ural, my best guess, late 80's and that is a guess. The Soviet (I think) tag means it is older than the end of the Soviet Union (so I might be close), probably an imported domestic one that somehow slipped past customs and was not destroyed.Those wheels are technical...
