under tank MC

I installed a rebuild kit, honed the cylinder and drove it. It's been two years. No leaks or problems. The brake functions as good as it ever did and as good as that set up can.

Reliable CJ

Dave,

I was responding to China's comment about staying away from all CJ's. I would not pay $5k for ANY CJ with that low mileage. Chris sold a nice running flathead, legally registered and...

Reliable CJ

China,

I beg to differ on CJ reliability. The flatheads can be very reliable. A friend, Chris Jordan, knows how to build reliable flathead CJ's. I have ridden my R90 with Chris on several 200 mile...

new drivetrain in a Ural

Somebody tried putting a complete Goldwing drivetrain in a Dnepr, some years ago. It was not successful, but I don't remember why. I think that would be a good drivetrain. There was a thread on the...

new drivetrain in a Ural

You might consider a Dnepr. You can probably buy a Dnepr cheaper than a Ural, and there is a little more room in the frame.

1990 Ural

shakeybone,

The ad has been deleted. I doubt if it was a 1990. Urals were not imported to the US til 1996 (I believe). If the Ural is earlier than 1996, it should have bottlecap hubs (used for...

K1100 fork tube diameter

Sidecarcrazy,

The measurement you have is correct, but a little misleading. I needed very short tubes between the triple trees on my K100, and 1 5/8" is as close to perfect as you'll find.
