Nevgriff64 new toy, an Aussie built Ural+BMW 1150GS

G/day all

Here is the begining of mating a BMWR1150GS to a Ural sidecar, Aussie style.

Proud owner is nevgriff64, celebrant Phil Duffy aka Phyllis.

Here is the handsome groom.



The blushing bride didn't want to have her photo taken just yet

As with all good relationships, you need to have a strong foundation for the union to survive the rocky road ahead.

May I present the subframe.



To which the Ural chassis will be attached to the subframe by these soon to be sloted clamps












RHS, note that even with a bash plate fitted there will be no loss of ground clearance


Rear upper mount




Here are a couple of other projects Phyllis has going, thats his LL design.


Front upper mount, ties in the head stem nicely.





And here is the man himself.



Guess you can tell he is from an areonautical background



And as every good celerbrant knows, Cleanliness is next to Godliness

As well as Phyllis doing the hard and technical stuff, the body has been undergoing a few repairs. I've got all the pics and I'll leave the main story to Nev.

This was the body when Nev took delivery. Repairs already started but you can still see one of the bigger bits of damage.




There were a few dents all around it and it was a case of just working through it.

The main dent in the nose wasn't easy to repair as the shape was distorted along the corner of the nose, and that russian steel is fairly thick and must be treated differently to the stuff we use here. It's quite hard and doesn't reshape well

The front mudguard needed some attention too

Thanks Chris for starting this thread mate.. Have had a couple of gentle hints that maybe I should get something started but being the usual slack bugger that I am, just hadn`t got around to it as yet..

Very happy with the way its all coming along and can`t thank Clancy enough for all the time and hard work in getting the Ural repaired and ready for the painting stages.. I`m sure he has a few more photos to come of some other very nice items that he built but i`ll leave them to him to post and explain how he made them..

Headed over to Phyllis`s house today to see how things were progressing and also to pinch a panel off the BMW to colour match for the painter.. Was delighted with how the build is progressing and must also say that the quality of work thus far has well and truly exceeded my expectations.. Thank you Phil, keep up the great work..

The panel was dropped off to the painter to colour match and after speaking to him for a short time, we realised that it wasn`t the genuine BMW paint work.. I knew the BM was first registered as black but one of the owners had decided he liked the silver a bit better.. What this now means is that not only will we be painting the Ural body and guard, we will also be painting the BMW panels at the same time.. We think a nice metalic colour would work nicely but what colour do we go with??

I have a few days before I need to make a decision so any input here would be greatly appreciated..

I`m kind of thinking a nice Orange colour very similar to the KTM bikes would look brilliant.. Maybe even KTM blue to match the 950 Adventure??

Hi Chris,Phil and Nev, this is going to be great Looks like a lot of work but I sure it will be worth it, Are you going to fit Leading Links? Are the wheels remaing std? I'll be keeping a close eye on this build, cos if I can't find a good Tiger 900 when I am ready to build my adventure outfit then I going to look for an adventure 1150 GS (yeah yeah I know I had GS) All the best guys to those involved.

This thing wasn't bolted to a k75c per chance ? I recall a woman teacher that lived not far from me that had one the same and used it as her only transport for herself and her son .The mounting system was a work of art .

Yes! That's the one!! When my three boys outgrew it, my missus lent it to her mate Marz in Brisbane for about sixteen years. Before the K75 it was on my K100RS .Before that it was on my Z1300 Kawasaki, and before that on no less than three GL1000 Goldwings....phew.. yeah it's been around for all the time I've been riding chairs.. almost forgot..it was on an XS2 650 Yamaha as my first outfit in 1977. And there's a good chance my grandkids will be riding in it before too long!!!

Hi Bruce, Depends what you mean by "available". I do make sets now and again, but I'm not doing it full time, I've still got a "real job".

Thanks for clearing that up for me phyllis .Marz lived a few streets away from me when I lived in Brisbane and I saw it nearly every day .Several times I dropped in to have a chat with her .The mounting system was to say the least very ,very brilliantly done . Then one day I never saw it again .I will not mention the 'sump extension' another work of art .

Sidecar Mounts

Thanks for the compliments! I've been concentrating on developing neater and hopefully stronger mounts from the word "GO". You'd probably notice that nice paint is not a priority on my personal outfits, When Marz was finished with it I brought it back to Melbourne for future use. The chassis will soon be back on the road on Bones' BMW K ,thanks to Sunbury Jack.
