I think I got a line on a running '82 900C with a pristine stock exhaust and little if any rust for around $1000.

Since it's getting so close to winter and I don't seem to have enough time for a big painting project right now, I think I might just get the 82, swap the triple trees from the 80 (while keeping the leading axle forks from the 82) to reduce trail for sidecar use, and ride it.

Then I can either use the 80 for parts, part it out, or fix it up and have a solo whenever I have the time....

If I get the '82, I'll just give the tub a quick wire brushing and a shot of cheap implement paint to hold it over until spring....

Edit: Still need a seat for the tub, though. Anyone have a Ural hack seat pan and back they want to get rid of? I don't care what condition the cover or foam is in. Or maybe I can cut something out of plywood....
