Butane Stove

Anyone use a butane stove like this? cs400-cs401-gasmatebutanestove-01-wfpcgtvvslad.jpg I'm building a squared-off teardrop to travel south on business and am looking for accessories to go with this style of stove. An oven attachment or wok would be desirable. Not having fixed gas (LPG) saves hundre...

Re: CL Find: BMW R75WH SIDECAR TUB ORIGINAL!

were R75 bodies only made by Steib? The beemergarage link suggests there were other manufacturers. Look at the mounting holes, those sure seem to line up with the accessories on the R75 in their photo, and the trunk lid handle looks like a match too. The sidecars were made by Royal (BMWs original s...

Re: Rare WW2 BMW or Zundapp

Interestingly enough, before the Chinese aquired the jigs, parts and plans to produce their own version of the M72M, they used, or produced, Zundapps. There was speculation some years back in the "chang" community whether or not the Chinese somehow made copies of zundapps or got originals somehow. ...

Anyone noticed the front disc brakes?
Which wheel and disc would that be? Very nicely done!
Standard Dnepr wheel with a drive spline adaptor for the disk and a tab welded on for the caliper. Do a search for CJ750 disk brake and you'll find dozens of examples.

Re: 1700 CC Dnepr anyone?

That's a Wolf for starters, so the driveshaft and cardens/u-joints are different any way. These guys are machinists, Russian machinists...really good with limited resources makes a really good machinist. FD does kinda have a Dnepr loo. When the Retro's motor goes, will have to get a crank from some...

Daughter No. One has often suggested that I be restricted to "Love" and "Sleep" emoji. I am aware that apart from the Islamic Republic of Iran no-one flies the F-14. However, I believe that much later US aircraft are S300/400 targets and that was the intention. If I was a betting man "radix malorum ...

Re: Retro Look Mods

This winter I plan major changes, not least of which is fitting a BMW R100 tank. Tbh I’ve never been a fan of the Ural tank, and I think this will improve the look of the bike. It means that I will need new badges. The Beemer badge is a stuck on, foam backed thing, 70 mm diameter and sits in a 3mm ...

Re: 2019 changes announced

I apologize for not explaining better; my comment was meant to convey a bit of sarcasm. Not having my Ural yet, all I can do is read about them. What I read a lot is that if the transmission just had more gears it would "solve" all of the shortcomings with the Ural. 5-6 gears would get a much lower...

But I'm a little more interested in the scooter on the right.

Re: I Bought An RPOC Today

It's a 14.3771 alternator which is commonly referred to as the grenade alternator. but as VWNate1 wrote, its problems were caused by owner and CSMI's insistence to misadjust the timing gear lash. Having egg shaped alternator gears certainly didn't help.

Re: Newbie

Too bad Ivan did not design the LL to include two pivot points like an Earle's fork so you could adjust the trail for the application. But I imagine that when the LL was designed, Ivan was not thinking about a global market and his countrymen were not a fussy as the rest of the world. The exact opp...

Re: CL Listing: 1976 BWM R75 Sidecar $19,900

I tend to worry about people who don't know the difference between a Dnepr and Ural sidecar and are building outfits. Tends to imply a lack of attention to detail.
