Meet the guy at Toys for Tots motorcycle parade last year when he pulled up a few bikes behind me. He really didn't know much about the bike and was surprised when I gave him a bit of history and spotting differences between my Ural and his bike. I do know he has it titled out of his cottage in Michigan because Illinois has crappy licensing laws and didn't like the outdated importation documents. Seems like an honest bike and ran just fine for the parade but don't know much more than that....

hard to tell from the FB photos, it may be 2WD.

If I wasn't facing CV19 furlough at work and had the room and had the extra $$$ I'd go there.
I could get used to the School Bus yellow too.

It’s definitely 2WD, you can see the final drive and sidecar wheel driveshaft in the second photo.

Happy trails,

Definitely an MT-16. I had one back in the 90s.
