Help needed I have a Ural Voyager that's been turned into a trike, The front end is the Ural the back end is a reliant Axle engine is a BMW R100.
My Question is I have attached a picture of the brakes I need to buy new seals and dust cover for the piston, I have contacted a company a company called F2 in Northampton England he informed me they no longer do that type of brake. If I can't get the seals is there an alterative. Any help would be appreciated.

Ural never made a dual disk front end like that.  The disks look a little like BMW, but the forks and calipers don't.  If they aren't entirely homemade, I would guess something early British.  :smile:  You should get a better answer here soon.

They're Ural calipers, used for a short time in 1999/2000. I'm guessing that IZH supplied them and that they're based on a Yamaha design. I've got a source for a set off a later Voyage with the Brembo front brake, but freight to the UK would be prohibitive.

Hi Both Thanks for your suggestions, I have posted a picture of my trike.
I am not to sure what to do now.
Last resort might be a new set of legs.

Hi, I have the same bike, from 1999 with the early 750 engine [not the 720] similar front end but with slotted discs rather than drilled. It's already had the master cylinder replaced with a Nissin one. The callipers appear to be the same back and front and are of cast iron. As Peter W says they look very like an older type used on Yamahas, the single bolt/swing out does look familiar. I suspect the piston and seal size may be Russian, think Lada or similar, but my inclination would be to run a calliper past a reconditioning specialist like the one we have nearby in Worcester [That's Worcester UK] and see what they say. Those callipers were only fitted to the Voyage and to the very early home market Wolfs [pre Paoli forks] so total production less than 2-300 in total, I know that pads are available in the UK although as my bike's only done 70km they're not needed yet!
I know that Uralmoto listed the 720's in 1999 but I'd never seen or heard of one till I bought mine, I remember Chris Smith having a Cobra. It's now ready to roll after sorting the electrics and replacing the original alternator with the earlier L454 type plus regulator, I've kept the "hand grenade" type on the shelf with the toolkit. I'd be interested to see some other photos of how the trike was done coincidentally that was what he previous owner of mine was going to do but he was put off by the SVA requirement.
Where the voyager was different from the Wolf was the swing arm and diff which was a floating type a la Guzzi Nevada or 1100 Sport and only fitted to the Voyager; the innards are interchangeable but the casings are not.If you have any bits left over from the conversion that you don't need then let me know.
Get in touch with some more photos!

Theres a couple sites and Face book pages you could join and get loads of contacts for spares from in and around England, if you can't find them via googling drop me a line and I'll chase up the links for you. Here is a good start the charity of skint trikers face book page, theres a great bunch of people on there and they will bend over backwards for anyone wanting help. The admins are Trevor and Mike and if they can't help they will point you in the right direction.
Let us know how you get on, and I hope you get sorted
