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...

Wow, and I thought my bikes were basket-cases when I got them. :P

I demand a build thread!

On the second crank, as the repaired first crank twisted again. I found a surplus motor. Hopefully it's all sorted finally.
Couldn't have done it without your help, RD.

I was so interested by your thread that I bought a K750... did not want the sidecar (I have a GU Ural) but really wanted a SV! Did all of 50 miles with it! Gearbox was hard to change gears, front of the shaft was almost off the hockey puck and rubbing the frame/swing arm.... After looking at the gearbox rebuild here, I decided I was better at polishing paint and bought a "new/redone" gearbox on Ebay (motowadimus).... the only thing new were the outside bolts/screws. The inside was in worst state than mine!! So now the gearbox is out to Ken Ulrich... Gearbox turning into dearbox!!

Nice score!

Very sweet bike! I'm jealous. How is it riding solo with that leading axle front end?

Ken will do you right with the gearbox, from what i hear. I read all his posts on Russian Iron with considerable interest- he's a wealth of info.

More pics!

Well... The little I rode was interesting, bordering dangerous! If I had really deep pockets I would ask a machinist friend to create a way to "push" the front axle to the front.
I do not want to highjack your posts but here are some interesting pics:

How out was the rear shaft...

Well finished shaft!

Kick starter spring in my "new" gearbox


Found in my old gearbox!

Hey Prmurat - that fall won't hurt that thing! Imagine (or don't) what it has seen already. You have a great looking and interesting bike there - it spans about 4-5 decades
