Re: Ural or Dnepr?

Dnepr MT-9, probably 1971/2 as it has the older teardrop tank. Note the MT-804 gearbox.

Re: Non-running DNEPR 650cc in New York, Ebay Motors

Probably early '90s MT-11 with earlier tank and taillights. If in Australia with an import permit and in QLD, worth USD 4,000. In the US - PASS!

Re: Van Got "Karen'ed"

It's tough being a dog owner today. No matter what happens the owner is liable. A few years back my wife was coming into the house with two arms full of groceries and our Astrailian Sheapard slipped past her and charged a passing cyclist. The dog never made contact with her but she did scare her en...

Re: Parts interchangeability

For that amount of money a BMW conversion starts looking really attractive. The cheapest BMW conversion is to use the short stroke R65 engine as almost nobody wants them, they're usually low milage and are cheap. Add a Siebenrock 860 kit and dual plug the heads. You can then run RON 94 E10 in Austr...

Re: are my piston rings one of a kind cose i cant find any place to buy them

Does anyone ever read the queries? It's a 1982 Ural with 4 ring pistons . In other words Soviet domestic cast pistons with two oil rings, one above and one below the gudgeon pin. Three options - get the ring grooves turned to take the new rings, get new four ring pistons and rings or get modern thre...

Re: Engine locked up... will a bmw engine fit in a MT16 frame?

Just be aware that there are mistakes in it. It's one of the appendixes to an over 350 page Service and Repair manual for all Soviet flat twins. It was compiled by two Australian experts and forwarded to many experts in Australia, the UK, Canada and the US, (and probably elsewhere). One unscrupulous...

Re: Military motorcycle MW-750 for sale

But we are experts in Soviet moto :) We have been restoring these motorcycles for 25 years. This is a completely original version MW-750 (russian "MB-750" read wiki), almost in the factory version (except for the handlebar (M72, BMW R71)), headlight mask filter, and trailer. Earlier cylinder heads ...

Re: Ford Lend-Lease tooling for Ural?

Wow, a lot of interesting stuff there, thanks all. One of the reasons I ask is there is a similarity in the boot on the Ford, as well as the fenders and even the tire size. It does not take a big stretch to imagine the same tooling being adapted to produce Urals. The picture is not one of mine, but...

Re: Ural Workhorse Hercules

Aren’t those used at the Ural factory to haul parts? Didn’t know any escaped to ty US. That's exactly what I've been told. And it's the reason why there is no paperwork available for the 650 types. the newer type 8750 models with the car tyres) did come from the works with paperwork but they were e...

Re: Ural Workhorse Hercules

It now has a 750 cc Ural engine in it. The year of it's manufacture is stated as 2000. The only engines Ural made in 2000 were 650 cc. Ural also used slip in exhaust header until 2006 when they went to the bolt on style. The only engines exported to the US in 2000 were 650cc engines. IMZ was making...
