Ural Tonneau Management

Post by BigVic64 » Thu May 30, 2019 10:22 am


I'm guessing this has been covered before but I couldn't find anything.

I have a 1998 Ural Deco Classic. I'm trying to find a way to either remove or fold the tonneau for passengers. It looks like its held in the front by the windshield and it seems too large to fold.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Pull the 5 leather straps holding the windshield skirt... they also hold the tonneau cover on the front...

Something that wasn't obvious to me until it was pointed out by a German friend - the windshield was made originally to lower into the tub when you didn't have a passenger. Just unattach the skirt and lower the windshield onto the seat. The tonneau then attaches to the same metal brackets the window skirt was on and covers the entire lowered windshield assembly. Have a passenger? Just remove the tonneau and raise the windshield.

My tonneau folds pretty well along the lines of the tub opening, then folded in thirds. It lives in a bag in the trunk when not in use.
