Very impressed by your Tenancity to tackle this project!!! Plus the transmission !!!

But I digress there are some sick cookies here - Leaf, Northwest, ect I think you might fit in with those guys!!!

Great build just in time for Spring!!!
A note on the valve covers/cylinder caps, those are pretty rare. The three ridge ones are actually off the original, late 1950's, first-generation KMZ (Dnepr) K750's like the one I have (even mine doesn't have them due to an engine swap!). They're sometimes (erroneously) called "winter heads". The were NEVER used on an M-72, and certainly never used on an IMZ (Ural) bike.

And as far as "sick cookies", I'm sure I make the other guys look as sane as Dr. Phil. This is my project bike I brought back from Iraq in 2007. It's all packed up in pieces in my shed, all painted, with every single part ready for assembly. I just need some time and space...

1959 KMZ (Dnepr) K-750 (Happy now?!?!?)
1962 KMZ (Dnepr) K-750M
1959 IMZ (Ural) M-72M
