He gave me some old coins too...from 1970s. Could you shed some light regarding the pins & patch, please. I don't know what he gave me but would be nice to know. Supposedly these are from the USSR (CCP) era...dunno. Thanks!

The funny think is that 90km after I was just behind him... I was even suprised myself because I stop a lot of time to take some pictures but maybe he stop also a lot of time to refuel

No this not an Ural but a prototype for the new Russian bike project.

Interesting bike. I think that the original idea for the "Stalinets" was for a 1000-1400cc sidevalve flat twin. Last pictures I saw was for a 1600cc narrow angle V-twin engine. Any idea of what the current design is?
