I am the proud owner of a Dnepr MT-16 which I have been working on for the past couple of years to bring back to road worthy status.  I have, however, run out of time to complete the remaining work required to complete my MT-16.  I am a Navy Submarine Officer and our operational schedule has prevented me from completing my MT-16.  I am curious if anyone is available to receive my MT-16 and complete the work I don't have time to complete.  

The work remaining include; tune the engine, it is currently running however it's not too strong yet.  Finnish truing wheels and bearing adjustments, finish rear brake adjustment, run in the drive train, and give the bike a good look over and recommend/fix any problem areas you see.  

The bike is 90% complete, almost everything has been restored/rebuilt or upgraded I just don't have the time to complete the final touches.  

Thank you for any information or recommendations you have.

All reasonable offers will be accepted.

Very Respectfully,
LT USN

I am in Connecticut, at the Submarine base in Groton.  Ken, I'm sure I can work something out I have many friends in Minnesota and might be able to convince one of them to trailer the Dnepr your way.

Thanks.

Ken, We spoke on the phone two days ago about doing some requested work on my MT-16.  I have secured a shipper and the bike is headed your way.  Should be there on Monday.  Thanks.
