Re: Trying to figure out if I can trust the local Ural service shop

Yeah, but those are Russian hours. They are not as good as USA hours and don't last as long. :wink:

Re: Trying to figure out if I can trust the local Ural service shop

I'm with Eric on why the hack price changed after they saw the bike. First price might have been for just tub and second included the chassis. Most shops get about $100/hr these days. So that 10K check price is telling you it will take 4 hours. I struggle with that, too. You could also call another ...

Re: Opening on top of headlamp housing?

It is where they mount the optical sight for the Dishka.

Re: New owner from CNY

Yeah, it's a love hate relationship. Love snow, hates salt. And if you are in CNY that's pretty much the salted road capital of the universe, as you well know.

The location in your photo looks familiar. Are you in Jamesville?

Re: Electric lean for Ural Sidecar on CL

Surprised LMO has not piped up here. He worked for Vetter when they made the Terraplane. That hack had a manually adjustable lean that could be adjusted from the saddle.

You made the right choice. The hack is a California SC and made for small bikes.

Re: Help ID mystery chunk from gearbox

Hope it does not give you problems. I've never been inside one of these so I have nothing to offer. I the PP might have nailed it. Obviously part of circular component with a hole in the middle. There are other parts that have similar characteristics. Seems to me we saw a similar failure posted here...

Re: '99 Indian with sidecar- Craigslist

I have a '39 Four which is before the skirted fenders. I'm also not a fan of the skirted fenders and they were not a success when first introduced in 1940. Many ended up in the bin as dealers put unskirted fenders on new bikes at the request of buyers. I was partial to open fenders before I owned a ...

Re: Wheel work / new wheel - Knoxville Area?

Not to argue, but lacing and truing a wheel is not an art. It is actually quite simple. You just have to pay attention and follow a few simple rules. Plenty of tutorials on the web for anyone that wants to do it on their own. I learned thru the trial and error method when I was in my 20's. I think t...

Re: Truck bed liner paint.

There is a guy down the road from me that has down two complete vehicle. First was a small SUV. He did the entire body himself with a kit he bought and I have to say it came out very nice.

Re: Of all my "Vices"

Here is that unique vise I have in the barn at the lake. Never saw one like this before. Very handy.

No name on it, just a number. What would you call this?

Vanvil?
Anvise?
Visevil?
Probably called a vise-anvil or an anvil vise.
