Re: non running ural on craigslist

Think $1750 would be a better price if the eyeball agrees and the title actually appears. It is a genuine Soviet classic and worth saving if one has the time, inclination , skills and possibly, money. Most parts except tinware are cheaply available from Eastern Europe. Remember, even with compressio...

Re: 2005 dnepr

The "never started" and "bought as a kit" sounds like a Yuri bike. Why couldn't the owner get it started in the past 13 years? Does he have the missing airbox and ignition components? Do you like your friend? Airbox won't fit due to the aftermarket starter kit fitted. That bike ...

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

I haven't taken a close look at the limiting bush (yet), what holds it on? Nothing apart from a slight ridge round the end of the shaft it slides onto. Use something long and thin to work round the shaft and free the rubber bush in case it's stuck on. Squirt some lubricant in between the bush and s...

Somehow, I can't imagine that you found the task too objectionable. :wink:

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

Bolt them in loose at the botton, pivot them forward until they hit the shock mount , then use a screwdriver to ease them into place. Part of a Dnepr toolkit is a 10mm diameter round tommy bar with a tapered end for use with box spanners and removing the front wheel spindle. It is also used as a pod...

Re: iKon Suspension for Urals

DNEPR. Oh hell! indeed :) WHY? I've replaced literally hundreds of them and had very few problems. If using OE 325mm centre ones, they just slot straight in with very little compression needed. There are certainly difficulties when fitting the common Ural Chinese replacements , firstly the top bush...

Re: Army Expected to Sell Off Thousands of Surplus 1911 Pistols

In Twisp WA in 2013 on a training day for my son the visitor of the land lord brought a 1911 officers gun (Beretta?) for to test. Luckily it did not percute. When I dismantled that pistol (my first pistol dismantle since Army time) i found out that the safety stop pin for the back slide movement wa...

Re: non running ural on craigslist

Bike might not be running for several reasons, does it spin freely and have compression? Looks like Kehein carbs, somebody either had it running or figured it would be close. The intake hoses can be made from other materials, Russian probably won't fit the 32mm intake side anyway. I thought M66's h...
