Not mine, it's a 650 not 750 unless the bike's been bored. Sportsman? Final drive looks a little odd.

They had that rig on eBay for a couple of rounds recently with no sale.
It has the "kinder and gentler BFH" in the tool kit.

Happy trails,

I beleive these had an FD with a diff in it full time. If you fly the chair it can damage the diff, parts are very rare for them. Also I think that if one wheel slips you loose all forward motion. No lock on the diff.

It's also going to be kickstart only, have "Oh the Soviet Union just collapsed a couple years ago" initial build quality, and a host of other potential issues.

Everything can be fixed.

Some people really like the differential drive, there's no sidecar pull on acceleration. I generally don't fly the chair.

For someone who's going to drive a couple hundred miles a year, they just want a toy to putter around with, why spend $18,000 on a new Ural when this will have more character and get the job done?
