Re: They are almost all gone.. Sad thing..

I work with a guy who was a child conscript of the Nazis.
The Brits lined him and several other guys up to be executed, but one of the Germans spoke English and managed to talk their way out of it.
He later joined the US Army.
He has lotsa war stories...

Re: Red Bull vs Vodka

Had the same experience with koryangju in Korea.
It's tastes like a lot like tequila, if tequila could go bad.

I still have half the bottle I drank. All have to do is touch the bottle and it sends chills down my spine...

At any rate, I know what it is NOT.
It's not a 1968 Ural, because these would've been the only mass produced bikes rolling off the IMZ line...

Re: 1968 Ural Tourist info needed

[quote="Scott Another clue that I spotted is that it appears to be an IMZ 8.103-40 model. Which came about in the mid-1990's If it had the bottle cap wheels then it would be an IMZ 8.103-10 model. I'm pretty certain the -10 and -40 designations refer to the final drive ratios and wheel sizes. Accor...

Re: Rain and issues kickstarting

Yep. Your battery is on it's last leg. You've got the classic symptoms.
1. Stops e-starting
2. E-start possible after battery charges after kick-start.
3. More and more kicks to start.
4. "Stair Master of Death" to start.

Hook up some jumper cables to your car battery to verify...

Re: 1968 Ural Tourist info needed

And in the book I did see a bike with a Deco style paint job with upswept mufflers and a sidecar but it had bottle cap wheels. Plus it had a very different rear frame section for the rear fender. It was upswept as well and the passenger grab handles were mounted to the rear fender. Since Weav's boo...
