For the Sportsman.

Post by jaybird » Mon Jul 15, 2019 10:47 pm

I already have two pairs of these, since I don't actually own a Ural Sportsman, and tend to debadge everything I own, I thought someone on here might be interested in this.
Yes, I do know this is from a Dodge van (that's where I got mine) but you can cut that part off and have a nice badge for your Ural Sportsman.

If I had a Sportsman I would get these for it. I like the older Urals and must admit that the Sportsman's two wheel drive setup seems like it would have some advantages for on street driving. Maybe I will order a set of these in anticipation of finding a low mileage unit in the future...

I asked the seller of my '99 if I could have this Suzuki emblem that was laying on his property, so he donated it.

I think the sidecar would be perfect. Place it on the right side so it can be seen like the pilot's name on a fighter.

Innovative, Rob. I hadn't considered that option.

Besides being slow and utilitarian, I don't really get the connection to the Ural, but I'm not one to stifle creativity.

Not noted for being a Speed Demon company!

Also people would be very puzzled (more so than they are now)

FYI - I came up with a CAST ALUMINUM step plate for my 02 Ural Sidecar. Mine came with a bent chrome one. The CAST ALUMINUM STEP is off a URAL Sportsman, & is a half inch thick in places. I prefer its looks & it won't ever get bent. Worth looking for IMO.

RC20, I am sure you’ve puzzled many a man (and women) in your life 😁

I have a /5 BMW That I broke down for parts, the PO had a section of mud flap from a Mack truck installed, depicting the Mack Bulldog, I still have it, and the rear light cluster it’s connected to, hanging on the wall in my motorcycle shed. I never quite figured out the connection between BMW Motorcycles and Mack trucks, I guess the guy just liked Mack’s..

It’s your motorcycle, put whatever you want on it.

I agree with the better looks of the cast step, and functionally it probably provides a better foot hold.
What I want to know is, how would someone bend a step plate?

I think the P.O. could - & sure did. - My guess (from the forensic indentation) that he used a bottle jack under it. I can laugh about it now - hahaha
Wasn't funny when the bike showed up - with an other surprise dent, & holes drilled in stupid places. I knew about its fried head & piston -
ALL fixed now.
Actually his burning a valve, spared the mostly new looking, low mile bike - from more torture & abuse. It has a very good home NOW.
