  1. #1 Default Want this (attn cheu-Ural content) 
    It's a 98, but it's not running. Boo. Asking 4k but I'm sure I can talk them down.



    However, fchat's motorcycle forum is telling me to run like the dickens. one person says it's too antiquated in a bad way...like drivin a model a in modern traffic. Another, who claims he is a friend of a Ural dealership owner and would occasionally work on them, said their hunks of junk and I can pm him if I want specifics


    But it looks so damn cool

    I know someone who owns one. It seems to always have problems. Granted his bikes always seem to have problems.

    Edit: I'm going to add my normal old bike disclaimer. Buy a bike that runs. Buying one that doesn't is asking for trouble. That might be a 98, but lets be honest, it's Russian, it's an old bike.

    cant really comment on quality, but I have heard that they are hunks of junk as well.

    what i do know is that they have less than 50hp from the 750 cc engine, and the thing isnt light. So you are really really slow for a motorcycle. It does look cool, but I have no idea what it's worth in the used market.

    also if you are serious about it, there are sidecar specific motorcycle training courses since it doesnt lean like your typical motorcycle.
    Oh Yeah!

    lol well it is a hunk of junk. but you should still get it
    I guess I was thinking if you get a new one for $10k, it comes with a warranty.

    otherwise get this indian, its only $45,000

    Looks kind of like the motorcycle this guy up the street from work drives. Daily drives that shit, snow and everything. Could be something totally different though and I wouldn't know.

    There is a huge Ural contingent coming to my event at Sunday River in July. They are also hosting their own group ride on Saturday of the event. Buy Ural and come to the meet!
