Re: Ebay 650 solo

I love that project and still harbor dreams of crafting my own variant I have not seen this before and it is impressive. Is the frame completely custom?

Re: Ebay 650 solo

Remember the Icon Quartermaster solo custom? I think that sold for a mere $2500 (I almost bought it, despite it being on the wrong coast) and it was a lot nicer than that.
I love that project and still harbor dreams of crafting my own variant.

Re: Old style tubes

Sorry, my 650's both have 19" rims. I've used both rubber stems and threaded steel stems without issue on them.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Oho! And I just figured out what happened to my reverse gear - the selector gate became detached from the shift shaft.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Any idea on how to remedy a valve not seating/sealing?

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I don't know what happened above, but somehow my reply and Birdy's post got merged into one.
That's, like, so weird.
