I've been busier than a cat covering shit on a marble floor.

Yeah, I was bummed I missed Matman's ural. woulda been perfect to put a sporty motor in.

This is my current project along that idea, its in the shop in Bulgaria. I didnt have alot of time this summer, so I just got it mocked up, but it looks like it'll work fine. Its actually a dnepr, not an ural, but they's about the same.

I found out that the sporty frame cradle will fit down into the dnepr frame just fine. I just gotta do a little bracket making & welding.

biggest problem is the sporty motor is taller, so I had to cut off the backbone of the frame, but I think I can flip it over, make a couple bends, add a few bits, & weld it back on.

The rear swingarm is also from a sporty, and I have a chain drive 16" sporty rear wheel.

technically, its a buell motor, out of a 01 cyclone. So I'm gonna replace a 15 horsepower dnepr motor with a 100hp buell motor.

some pics so far..... the motor is now in the frame, but I guess I forgot to take a picture of it.
