Lew, I have a bookmark of it in computer and iPad. Searching every day... nothing available.
The 2013 Retro with 1500 km was sold last October for a very reasonable price (6k) in Port Hueneme. Last year I was willing to buy something bigger and more reliable then Ural.
One of Paso Robles guys bought it. After a year he sold it to Dennis wildhorse.

There was 07 Retro with 5000 km sold near San Francisco for $3500 last week.

I also regret not going and buying the red Dnepr sidecar near by. I found it and post it here for someone lucky to get it:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=54516&p=697856&hili ... 50#p697856

I could've mount it to something bigger and better like Honda, BMW... :D


There was also this 2013 Retro But I did not want to deal with CA DMV again due to 49 state, non CA complaint and having less then required minimum of 7500 miles:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=54698


And, I don't want to buy any out of state bike with high mileage.

Nice 2012 Tourist for sale right here on SS that happens to be in CA.

Buying from a SS inmate who happens to be moving up to a newer model (thus happy with the brand and his purchase) is the cream of this forum.

Thank you Lew for looking.
Looks nice for 1999. But that's Tourist is yesteryear with 650cc engine.
The original owner-Seller wanted less than $3000 a few weeks ago, I spoke with him... I could've got it for temporary fun if it wasn't 150 miles away from me. Now this guy (the current seller), who bought it tying to flip for $4800😅 He is trying to make $2000 on that sale. I already got tired of his everyday new ads and blocking them. I have set CL new listing alerts for Ural and Sidecar ads...
Good luck to him!

Now I am really curious about what years are acceptable and how much you are prepared to pay?

4REICH,

It's in my original post...clean, low mileage...

If you have one that I am interested, we can talk. It depends on mileage and physical/aesthetical condition of it. If I find one in exceptional condition, I will know how much I am ready to pay for :D

So far, I have driven once 280 miles (round trip) with a truck and a U-Haul trailer to buy a 2010 Patrol with 8000km, but saw a rusty junk for $5000 and was disappointed. Later checked the VIN # and found out it already had 60,000 miles reported to DMV.

Second time my wife and I went 60 miles away to see and possible get a 2013 T which had 38000 km on odo and he wanted $5500. I came, saw it, did not want to start the engine nor test drive or do any haggling. :puzzled: time wasted!

I'll be honest, I like the look of the flipper's one. If it's still unsold in a few weeks, I might try to get him down to $3500 for it.
