find dnepr conversion to full BMW drivetrain

Post by arbalest04062 » Wed Sep 18, 2019 5:05 pm

Hello folks,

I have been a bad boy. I cleaned out my email and discarded all my old emails. Of course, now I want to contact a former poster who was building/fabricating a complete BMW drivetrain into a Dnepr (or was it a Ural??). Does anyone here recall that build thread? Ultimately ha had to abandon the project, so the thread just trickled down.

I think I remember that thread, you show be able to find it with a simple forum search.
Richard Winter AKA Bural, has/had a Dnepr with a BMW engine/transmission/swingarm/final drive that he successfully built, perhaps if you also search his posts, you might find what you’re looking for.

Happy trails,
