Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular

Spotted a Ural.... I think.... whatever it is it looks like a 650.

This pulled out at the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular (Hollywood Studios Disney Florida).

Got all excited and had to snap a pic for the collective :cheers:

I have a friend who is a maintenance tech at Disney. They have two Urals, both converted to golf cart electric motors so they can be used
on the indoor set. My friend said they had a stack of Uralshina tires about 6' high.

First time I took in that show, I figured it for a BMW, of course, until my daugther’s boyfriend said, “Naugh. It’s some sort of Russian deal”. That would have been almost fifteen years ago when he and my daughter worked at Disney. By the way, since the bikes run about 100 yards at ten mph each show, why would they need so many tires?

I figured it was converted to electric. Especially since when he “kick started” it he kicked on the wrong side of the bike.
