Re: Stainless Fairing Made by......?

Chris finds bike parts for sale in Eastern Europe (he used to live in Ukraine), is offered bike parts by others that know he is a buyer of stock, and then offers them for sale through Vostok Motorcycles. What he has available changes all the time. The fairing I bought for him was offered to him seco...

Interesting how the bottom of this version is different than the one in my original post. I'd love to see more photos from the side or front corner view.

Re: Stainless Fairing Made by......?

Ok, I've put a couple of pics on a blogspot I use for things like this, http://boristhednepr.blogspot.com/. I bought mine from Chris Tomes of Vostok Motorcycles - top fella - carriage was a bugger cos it's so big. It was packaged AMAZINGLY by the girls at Vostok, no complaints at all. Mine didn't ha...

Re: Stainless Fairing Made by......?

I have one on my 2003, I'm pretty certain it's aluminium rather than stainless just because of the lack of weight to it. I'll work out how to get a pic on here....

Re: how to remove rubber seat cover!

This might help - it might not, it's pretty vague, but here goes. The ( believed to be ) late SS member Dneprlover came round to my house once to buy some stuff, and he briefly explained in conversation how he fitted tractor seat covers.

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

Rode about 140 miles round trip from Chorley up into Cumbria, the English Lake District, sightseeing quiet country lanes with no traffic and wonderful scenery. The bike was faultless, of course.
