    1st car 1951 Henry J 1st bike 1968 Suzuki 250cc X-6 Hustler Bought a Ural because my wife's bad back couldn't abide the 79 Honda CBX's rough ride. Now she has fallen asleep in the hack twice, so it must be better. By the way I really enjoy the bike too.
  1. Having her back home is a great way to start the year. I am so glad. If she already can use all her limbs and can speak normally, I am sure she will have a pretty complete recovery. Thank you for letting us know.
  2. Urals and Neppers are not good bikes to own if you sweat small problems. As long as the problem isn't intrusive or safety related, I just ride. I love the way they feel, sound and look on a ride.
  3. Hi Duck. Been watching this thread for awhile. Glad you are making real progress. I always got away with just using a light coat of grease on cork gaskets. If I use synthetic oil my castings seep. Some castings seep with any oil. You can use baby powder to track down a leak if it is hard to pinpoint. I imagine you already know cork gaskets don't like fastener over tightening. Other than that look for cracks or light gouges on the flanges. Good luck with your bike. It is really looking pretty.

  4. I am so glad you got it treated early. Here's hoping she gets to return home soon
  5. So glad she's home. I hope you get a hale and healthy Becky for Christmas.
  6. Here's hoping her progress speeds up soon. Thank you for the update.
  7. Vance, Thank you for taking the time to update us. We are all glad she is getting better.
  8. Get well soon Becky. Being selfish, we need your kindness on this board. Hang in there Vance. Best wishes for you too.
  9. I am so glad you are back. I missed you.
  10. Dowey, I did this same swap on my 14 just for grins. I didn't know if I would like it but I love it. It is much easier to get into reverse quickly and it saved my bacon once when a left turning car cut into my lane at a stoplight. Also my tranny has over 46,000 km on it now and sometimes when I shifted to neutral at a light, the old shifter would drop slightly and prevent me shifting to first. The heel-toe shifter doesn't do that. The only downside is that the shifter install is touchy about which notch you use when you install. Rotate too much to the rear and you can't get to the toe ped
  11. Yes Vance it is cancelled. DneprTim announced it June 2nd on Soviet Steeds.
  12. Welcome Spearman, I am not in the market but wanted to give you a little hint. You will have much more interest if you add pictures. For maximum exposure, you might want to also use Soviet Steeds, if you haven't already. Some will be leery of someone who is selling something in their first post and now is a rough time to check something out, so best of luck.
  13. Isn't it great. Now when I ride to the store for groceries in 32 degree weather, that is the sane part and going to the store is the crazy action.
  14. I have a $10 adjustable tension throttle lock that I like. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NSM5DYP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
