Hello Folks,

Well I wish to make the Russian bike thing a family affair so I am thinking about building a bike for my wife only with a BMW engine as she will need a reliable running engine for obvoiyus reasons. I have come across this engine but the owner knows little about it other than that its a BMW engine.
Anybody out there know what model/year it is or other details... and if it will do well in a Dnepr/Ural tranny and fram.

Can't be sure, but it looks like it's from the 70's to me.

The engine will drop right into either a Dnepr or Ural frame with no modifications. There are a variety of different ways to mate a BMW engine with the Ural or Dnepr transmission; some are more complicated than others.  Search here or over at Soviet Steeds and you will come up with plenty of threads on the topic.

My guess is early to mid 70's /5 or /6.

Looks like it could use some love though.  Hope it's a deal.

If my Dnepr engine ever has a critical failure, I'll most likely replace it with a Beemer.

I have a 6.5mb zip file of all the info I have ever found on the Internet about the conversion.  I can only post 1MB attachment here, so if you can receive a file that large via email, PM me your email address.

JustTroltln,

Thanks, E-mailed you my Mail, looking forward to the read.

I agree, it looks like it need lots of love but I haven't had much luck finding these engines second hand.
I have asked the owner for more details but no answer yet. Lots of bits are missing and so on. If the is a box of bits to go along with the engine its a deal, if not I may just pass. I have plenty of time.

cheers


Anybody else out there with an idea ? ? ? ? ? ?
thanks

I bought a new one in 78, the rocker arm covers were different. This one is pre 78.
