Howdy All,

Ilya, is trying to get me on a newer Ural but before I can do any kind of deal with him I have to thin my herd of Urals.

First up the 2008 Gear Up, that I did the circumnavigation of the entire USA on in the summer of 2008. This bike now has 26,547 klicks on it. photo taken just a few minutes ago this is ACTUAL mileage.
Image

This bike had its drive train, checked and rebuilt as needed by Sergey after it did the round the USA trip, since then it has been ridden very little mostly by Mrs Cob, and not at all for the last three years. It is in VERY good shape as it was serviced by IMWA all the time that I have owned it. I am going to post up some older photos of the bike, it is STILL in the same shape as when these photos were taken, I can take NEW present day photos after I get it out of the garage which will take some doing. These photos were taken the last time the rig was ridden off road while participating in Dana's April Ural event. You can see that at that time the rig still had the IMWA factory dealer plate on it, Ilya gave me the rig about 6 months later. Just before Ilya, gave it to me Sergey, gave the rig a clean bill of health, it HAS NOT been abused since these photos were taken as I was in the process of building the "Predator" which was to become my off road rig.

Getting a full service and new clutch in the IMWA shop just before Ilya, gave me the rig.

I am pricing this rig for a quick sale, it has a real history, it is a part of the Ural-IMWA story and is well known by many. As an added bonus this rig comes complete with a Mr. Cob, skid plate and heavily reinforced left side crash bar. The price, $5,500.00, this is a damned good deal on a well maintained and historic Ural.


Let me know ASAP if your interested. THANKS

Now that 2008 should sell quick. If new or wannnabe foilheads don't knew golden hand Sergei and his work quality, this is their chance to buy a good running Urals with a good rebuild engine.let's see who's going to be the lucky buyer.

Good Luck with your sale Dave!

Howdy jgendr,

The 13/14 has been sold. That is why all photos and information concerning it have been removed from my ad.

Hello all. Just wanted to say I'm the one who bought Mr. Cobs 2013 bike The Kraken. I can't say enough good things about the experience. He was wonderful to deal with and anyone would be luck to get his other bike. Shipping was easy as well Motorshippers were very quick and professional.

Howdy All,

A couple of days ago a fellow from seattle came out to look at the 2008, he liked it. I told him I would get it running and cleaned up so he said he would come again to see it when I had done the work. So this morning I dug the 2008 out from under all the crap that it has been sitting under for the last four years. Put a battery in it, kicked it over a few times, turned the petcock on, hit the magic button, the engine spun over about 5 times and STARTED. Four year old gas and it started, coughed a few times then settled into a nice idle. The 2008 has always been a great rig and I have always liked it, kinda sad to see it go but it is what it is. Shanon, will be coming over tomorrow to take a look and a test ride, wish me luck in the sale.
