  • My Bike(s)
    Prototype Reimann-Ibrahim Interdimensional Transfer Vehicle and Cold Fusion Power Module camouflaged as aesthetically distressed 2000 Ural Deco Classic. Behold I come quickly. It was a gift from Jesus. I kid not.
  • My Story
    Al I can say for now is: retired to a life of serene decay. When I find out the rest I will let you know. I am more interested in your story.
  1. Thank you Malamute. As you can read from my post in response to Russian Bike Nut, my latest research into selling it has led me to keep it for now. But I will post more current and complete photos for purposes of salivary entertainment.
  2. Thank you Russian Bike Nut. Photo session with bile yesterday renewed affection. Decided not to sell for now. Will upgrade post with photos soon so you can swoon. Besides, my research shows values increasing. Perhaps keep in reserve for burial insurance and be interred in tub. If (he says hopefully) present engine does not endure, favor BMW R90 power train as I owned one once and it was nice and smooth. Did you do your own installs of upgrades? If so, can you guide me to guidance? If not, who did? (They have everything in LA, right?) Looking from Central Arkansas, the nearest shops that sell a
  3. Reviewing this string of posts nearly a year later, I'm a little shamed that I have not kindly thanked all respondents sooner. If Malamute is still around and interested, yes I would be willing to sell the sidecar separately and even - given spousal permission - deliver it (attached to bike) for suitable fee.
  4. 75 MPH definitely: I grok it as greater power of 2010 motor and especially tall final drive ration in 2000 Decos compared to other models.
  5. Runs strong: 75 mph uphill, headwind, "shields up" and passenger in tub. (I did not believe it at first either. Maybe combination of tall final drive ratio in this model, a little more power in 750 cc motor and Ducati ignition at time of install.) Clean but "aesthetically distressed" i.e., normal wear and tear for age/km - ridden regularly 27,000 km and change 10,000 km and change on new 2010 motor, Nippon Denso alternator (Ukranian hand grenade did in old motor), starter (have all receipts for install). All done by Gene Langford at Holopaw Ural who heat-bends kick-starter so you get to
  6. Dear SB#3, Pleas forgive my delayed thanks. Owing to much other business, is the first time I have signed on to the site since I posted my plea. Thanks so much for confirming my sanity and for the additional suggestions. Since you responded the day after my post, I assume that the 72 subsequent readers must have thought you right on the money, as none of them has had anything to add or subtract. It looks like you have a really neat collection. Can I ride them all sometime? With gratitude and respect, -Tom
  7. Please, as I am only a minimally skilled amateur mechanic, I can use all the collective wisdom of membership! Grateful for any response. Please assume that WD40 has been liberally applied & left overnight prior to procedure. My plan at this point: 1) punch dimple dead center in end of sheared bolt; 2) use three reverse-twist (left hand) drill bits of increasing size and with the very lightest touch of pressure to bore shallow hole in end of bolt; 3) If drilling itself does not start turning the bolt out enough to grab w/fingers or pliers, try using phillips screwdriver w/light pressur

  9. This is the bolt with locknut that sticks out of the back of the transmission and by screwing in and out controls the rearward throw of the reversing mechanism. When screwed too far in, reverse does not engage or does not fully engage. This is my situation, bolt being sheared off flush to transmission case. My Ural Guru tells me these bolts and corresponding threads in case are differently machined. So I suppose safest bet is one from that year (2001). If the one you provide does not work, I will pay shipping back to you. In my current post on bolt extraction I am looking for tips. T
