  1. Today
  2. One of the best things about our hobby... Puppy rides with me..... SB#3
  3. Yesterday
  4. We had one dog who would jump into the sidecar but as soon as I approached the bike he was out of there, he didn't like engine noise. A shame because he really liked to ride in the car.
  5. Last week
  6. Just sharing a picture of my dog Enzo, enjoying his perch on our old Dnepr. We rode 76 km on 29 August, 2021. He's always up for a ride.
  7. Hi yes these model were sold in Ireland.
  8. Earlier
  9. Are you in Europe? All US models came with Keihin CV carbs. And I believe the chrome shocks mean you have Russian shocks and I think the US models had Paoli shocks. Or someone changed out the carbs.
  10. Hi yes I have one like this but I have a few different parts on my model My carburettors are k 68s air box are different front fork legs are crome..
  11. It is a Ural Wolf. First imported into the USA in 2003. Production began earlier for Russian release. I own one of the first ones to hit the USA. RussN
  12. Hi here is the photo when I pulled it out of the ditch.
  13. Up for Sale is my Dnepr MT16 - 2 Wheel Drive sidecar. It is really much better than a new Ural in a lot of ways. Then there is the cool factor. The bike has been part of the family for a long time, I will likely regret selling it. I purchased it with 25 Kilometers on the clock in 2009. I replaced the speedo when I did the conversion, it reads 3,300km. It is registered as a 1964 and has a 1978 BMW R100rt motor. The title is clear, current and has a North Carolina Antique Plate The VIN is a California "Blue Tag", making it as easy to register as any other vehicle. I am turning 65 soon and moving most of the year to Europe. That said, a few life changes are going on, including selling a bike or two. This Bike is a full time 2 wheel drive (like a car and unlike the Ural locker type) and goes off road to places you wouldn’t think it could go. The BMW conversion is common in Europe and well proven. The motor is electric start, fires right up and runs great. A few of the Upgrades to this bike 1,000 CC BMW R100RT motor, I lowered the compression (shims under the cylinders) for better low end and the ability to run low octane gas. Check what the motor alone is worth, if you can find one.... I have only run no ethanol fuel in the bike from day one. It has hardened valve seats and puts out double the power of the old Soviet motor. It is a big valve engine with 40mm Bing carburetors. As is common practice with this conversion, there is a BMW /2 clutch disc, it doesn’t slip. There is a heavy duty fiber reinforced rubber donut on the driveshaft, designed specifically for the bigger motor. The Dnepr 804 trans is widely regarded as the most robust of the Russian Gearboxes, it has been modified with a lower 1st and a higher 4th gear ratio, the bearings are all Timken or SKF. It has good low end power and easily runs up to speed. Electronic ignition; it retains points and the auto advance mechanism. The dodgy Soviet wiring harness has been replaced, all connectors are soldered and shrink tubed. There are 30amp relays controlling the starting and headlight circuits. The headlight is a 55/100 Hella bulb and lights up the road as well as a modern bike. There is a full size car battery in the trunk. Front Disc Brake – the drums were OK 50 years ago in the Soviet Union; they were unsafe on American roads. I used a large piston Honda Type Master Cylinder, retained the Leading Link front end (for easy steering) and installed a double caliper disc setup. It stops really well now. All the U Joints were replaced a couple of years ago. Comes with lots of extra parts, gaskets and filters. Tires will last another season; they are Duro and a Kenda knobby as a spare for dirt work. All wheels are interchangeable on the bike. This thing is a hoot to ride, it goes in the snow and the mountains with ease, everyone wants to go for a ride. There are few motorcycles I have owned that faithfully give me the grins, this is one of them. I also have a full size trailer that fits the bike, that I will Sell for $250 if you buy the bike. $8000 mlcfry@hotmail.com
  14. I may be of no use to you but there are some fairly helpful folks here. If you post some pictures, someone here can usually identify them. Besides, we like pictures. Just be sure to size them below 1 Meg.
  15. Hi is it possible to find out the year of my bike from vin number my bike did no come with paperwork it a project.
  16. Yea the shaft doesn't have enough clearance for a 180. Tyre.
  17. Tank you. I'll give it a try.
  18. Almost any photo program will let you resize a photo to below 1 Meg. Or you can take a photo with your phone and email it to yourself. Most phones let you resize on and email. If you can't get either of those to work, I'll send you my email and you can email to me. I can resize and post them.
  19. Unfortunately I am unable to figure out how to upload photos that I have taken. The file size for a photo is too large to upload. Any ideas? I would appreciate any advise. Milage is 10662.
  20. Sounds like a good movie title, "Night of the Rarewolves". 🙂
  21. Hope all is well

  22. I have the stock rear wheel on my 2003 Wolf. Works fine. I think drive shaft clearance could be an issue. My Wolf measures ~9mm (~ 0.350") between the shaft and the stock tire sidewall, when sitting still. Please post your results for the rest of us rare Wolf Pilots. RussN
  23. Just curious, I've never even seen a Wolf. How is the tire going to clear the driveshaft? I would certainly like to see pictures of the wheel offset when this is done. Best of luck.
  24. Hi I want to put a wider rim on rear of wolf has anyone down this I want to put on a 180 wide tyre. Thanks
