Price kind of sucks too. I paid $1k for a pristine Wolf in 2013 and while that was an exceptional deal I struggled to sell it for more than $2k a year later.

Ouch....one of these was listed for $5000 a few weeks ago and either sold or got de-listed. I'm pretty sure it had two shifters and two brake pedals? It was the first time I had ever seen something like that.

They all had that. It's standard. Despite the two available leg positions, the ergonomics were horrible. The lower position made it really hard to get any reasonable boot to fit between the carb and the peg, and the forward position felt very silly with both legs and arms forward and couldn't really be sustained for long.

I did not know that! Seems good in theory...but I never did understand the whole "highway pegs" thing for cruisers. I've never felt the need to stretch out while on the bike. If I want to do that, I get off the bike.

Sounds like it's a bar hopper. Must be why it has like no miles. "Less than 2000 original miles" after what, 15 years? Crazy.

To be honest, it kinda looks like a honda rebel that had its frame expanded and stretched. Not a good look.

What's it actually worth? You paid $1000 for a bike that only 30 exist of here in the states? Seems pretty rare to me...should mean a little extra value, even if it's only 2 or 3 thousand...

Why did you sell it? Was the seating position/handling comfortable? Are the Wolf frames close in design to the retro? In your opinion can you expand on why don't these bikes fetch much on the used market other than the obvious lack of raw speed?

It's uncomfortable, slow, and queer-handling, in addition to having all the classic limitations of a Ural it doesn't have any of its strengths (sidecar, reverse, original-looking rather than a nondescript cruiser).
