1994 Ural M66 with Sidecar
Owner: H. B-C, Virginia
COMMENTS:  This Ural was purchased brand new by the owner in the early 1990s when he was in the former Soviet Union. It was shipped to the US but sat for several years, uncrated, in a storage facility.  When the owner was finally able to find a shop that would work on Urals -  that would be us - he brought the bike here in February 2007 to get it running.  After we "de-mothballed" it and replaced the 10+ year old maintenance items including the original Russian tires with modern Dunlop's, the bike still did not run.  Poor Soviet electronics were the reason, so we added a Boyer Bransden electronic ignition adapted & customer fitted for the Ural.  Once the Ural ran, the owner requested upgrades and custom features including: new Mikuni carburetors with new choke and throttle cables, a trunk strap for the side car, improved headlight, replacing the turn signal switch, adjusting the driver seat to make it 2" taller and 2" further back, add improved mirrors, and repair several rust spots on the side car. The addition of non-standard handlebars was added in 2009 to improve the rideabilty for owner who is a tall gentleman.
