Re: Cycle Trader find - 1968 Izh with Sidecar

I've sat on that bike... Bluemoon is my local Ural dealer, as seen on American Pickers (Zundapp episode). Used to be my BMW dealer, back in the day... His rather nice collection is in there.

Man these things are always "original" no matter what you do to them! Drag or ride her on over to GROPE next month! It might not even be the oldest or crustiest thing there!

If you listen to the most paranoid of the medical professionals, who will talk, small gatherings OUTSIDE w...
