Re: 1968 Ural Tourist info needed

If I were you, I wouldn't get hung up on exactly what vintage the bike is. Look at it; find out what's wrong; and if it's a runner, make an offer. Who cares what year it is if the title is usable and the bike runs? Cheers, Dan K. The problems are: It came from the factory as a solo bike with solo g...

Yep.
Same thing.

Re: Tales of long distance treks on Soviet Steeds...

And a little bit better readable text of... The Motorbike Travels of Ann and Peter Parsons Peter Parsons is an oil engineer. But his main passion is motorbikes and touring. His wife Ann, too, is enchanted by the “travel muse” and shares with him the joys and hardship that involves. On his way back f...

Re: Guzzi California!

I know. The Guzzi California is pretty sweet.
There's quite a few new offerings out there this year. Seen this one yet?

Re: Messed up UDF

Yep.
The dude you talked to was definitely confused.
His staments are fraught with ignorance.

Any helicopter engine from that era would've been too large to reasonably fit in a motorcycle...
Aircraft engines are more expensive...
There would've been no leftover/unusable engines anyhow...

Re: 1968 Ural Tourist info needed

I'm 6000 miles away and can smell it from here Scott. The poster is being a little economical with the truth. Maybe he's selling a bike ? You could be right. There's a lot of misinformation in his last comment. First, there is no "gray-market" for 1960's era bikes. They are ALL perfectly legit acco...

Re: I stand corrected...

So I must admit that I may have inadvertently lied. Apparently it may actually be a 1968! The folks at Raceway in Salem, OR have confirmed that the 1967 I bought is indeed the real thing and is an all-original genuine gray-market import from Russia in the late 60's. The upswept exhaust is indeed a ...

Re: The All New Indians !!

By the way the Indian has no key, just a fob that stays in you pocket and you just push a button to start it, similar to the new cars. Kawasaki have had that for a while... as I see it the Indian is well designed, better than a Harley in it's handling and performance and looks good to some people. ...

Re: The All New Indians !!

I don't understand why some posters here and on a couple other forums seem to think that Indian should have built a near exact copy of what was produced 60 years ago. Harley does not. Their offerings today are nothing like the piece of crap AMF my best friend bought new. God forbid that Ural brings...

Re: The All New Indians !!

Went to HDforums to see the response, the thread post count is growing faster than I can read them. :o Mostly positive response, and the predictable naysayers, the dislike of the touring fairing seems to be nearly universal. Most of the threads that I looked at were locked. I guess they don't wanna...

Can't do it by $ per pound since the Indian weighs slightly more than a Ural...with sidecar!

Re: 1968 Ural Tourist info needed

Like dneprlover said, someone probably fat-fingered what should've been 19 9 8 into 19 6 8... And, it's a Ural Solo. It has different gearing for higher speed cruising. It was not intended to drag a sidecar even though it has gearing similar to the original BMW sidecar hauler all Urals evolved from....
