2003 Tourist for Sale: Help me out here

Bike is no longer for sale.

Due to a progressing brain disease, I am forced to sell my 2003 Ural Tourist
sidecar rig. This Ural is one of the motorcycles sold during the period when
IMZ was taking over the importation and distribution of Urals in the U.S., and
it one of the “CMSI” bikes. I purchased it new from the Wagners dealership in La
Port, Indiana, new, in August 2003. Bike has been reliable and trouble-free
for the last two years. Solid.

Price is $7,000 and includes the trailer and all parts listed.
Photos are big so that you can see the details, warts and all.

21,000K miles.Drum brakes all around. 750cc, electric or kick start. Electric
(Series 3) ignition. Spot-welded ignition rotor. Russian alternator has been
replaced with the new Nippondenso alternator with adaptor. Retro valve
covers (original stock covers included in sale). Two almost new Avon Triple
Duty Sidecar tires (front and driver wheels). Radiator hose intake hoses have
been replaced with reinforced aircraft ventilation tubing. Scissors jack (from
a Volvo) included. Vetter Windjammer III mounted and a Harley Sportster
boat-tail seat replacing Ural tractor seat and stock rear fender and lights (I
designed all of this so that it can be removed and the original parts put back
on if I ever got tired of it). Fairing has a seven-and-a-half-inch diameter
Bosch headlight from a /6 BMW (with a Vetter headlight adaptor). Sealed, gel
battery mounted between bike and sidecar. Barnett heavy-duty front brake
cable plus spare. New headlight relays. Two main fuses replaced with modern
automotive-style fuses. Battery tender. Heavy-duty motorcycle cover
(brown canvas and huge). Stainless steel "Manic Salamander" Bar-end weights
and cushioned grips. Power outlet on fainring with a second hook-up for the
Battery Tender on the battery box. Hinged, pivoting mirrors (carbon fiber housings).
Aftermarket no-seam mufflers, eliminated the crossover tube. Headlight on/off
switch mounted on fainring. Motovation "night-glow" analog clock.

Also included in the purchase is a Haulmark enclosed trailer, torsion bar
suspension. Purchased new in August 2003 when I bought the motorcycle.
Ramp-style rear door, no side doors. Seven feet wide by twelve feet long,
ten feet high. Four tie-down points, one at each corner of the trailer. Four
ratchet-style nylon tie-down straps. Aluminum with a steel frame. It has
electric brakes with an emergency activation feature if the trailer breaks
loose while being towed.

The floor jack partially shown in the last picture is also included.

I am willing to sell the bike and trailer separately, too. $4000 for the bike/sidecar
$3000 for the trailer.

Bike is no longer for sale.
