Welcome to the Forum.
In our mid-60s age-wise, we have two motorcycles: A Ural Wolf (2003) and A Retro+sidecar (2007).
Both provide satisfying riding for my wife and I.
'Wouldn't have it any other way.
Our Urals have required very little "tinkering" and remain solid rides. Just standard servicing and inspections, and lots of riding.
I hope you enjoy similar experiences.

My name is Brian and I currently don't own any bikes. I have been living in Central Asia for the past 2 1/2 years. I had a dirt bike in the past but have not owned a street bike. I recently went to a small bike show here and saw some of the old Russian bikes. Several were for sale. I looked a 1951 M1A, 1952 EJ 49 and a 1958 K750. All these bikes were for sale but I was wondering if anyone knew what would be a good price for theses bike. They were all in good shape and ran. I would like to buy them in a package deal if possible and ship them back to the states. Photos of bikes are attached. I have tried to upload pictures but it keeps telling me file are to big. Any feed back would be a big help.

I trust you will find your project bike, and get back to The Fun.
Yes, new Urals are pricey now. At least their technologies and material/manufacturing quality are a modern match for that price.
Pretty much twist-and-go capable now. Times change, always.

As they have identified the problems and corrected them, each item came with a price. Things like good fasteners, etc. won't elevate the price much, but things like true rims, hardened gears, stainless steel, fuel injection, disc brakes, modern switchgear, hydraulic dampers, and on and on have crept the price up considerably. But the oil leaks are pretty much gone and as Russ says they are almost gas and go now. So you get what you pay for. And low production volume will also keep prices up. I don't think the changes have been easy and I'm surprised they have navigated the issues of keeping the charm and durability while improving the bike. It's a miracle they have done so well with the limited resources they have.
