Back in a War Zone

Anyone like to read the RR these guys could post?

For the questions coming, this is a Ural 2003 contracted as mail delievery vehicle.
It was one of a few hundred that were ordered under the "oil for food" deal w/ Iraq.
Motor looks like a 650.
It has drum brakes cause of the desert sand & many third world countries still order the drum design.

Right now I'd say the Males are about to make a hell of a delivery.

Delivered about two hours ago. 1977 BMW R100/7 with a Sputnik.

Not perfect, needs some little things. Runs beautiful, no leaks, new tires.

Could use mirrors, fork gators, clean up some sidecar wiring. Front brakes are just pathetic - they work but no feel at all. Very stiff. And stiffer rear shocks.

But - two huge grins from my wife and I up and down the street!

The pivot point of the tire is moved to be more inline with the angle of the triple tree and make the rig easier to steer. This is accomplished by having a custom built triple tree or by having a leading link front suspension.

Ride an outfit with standard teleforks, then jump on one with links, hub-centre or trail reducer.

Got an outfit, or just thinking out loud?

One may struggle with the geometry but you wont have any confusion when it comes to the practice.

One objective is to reduce the trail. From something like 100mm on a standard telefork bike to, um. I don't care what it is, just that it works. Being bespoke, there is opportunity to build in a facility to alter the trail, in an effort to optimise it for your combination in the situations you ride.

There are also issues of strength and stability of the front end, amongst others.
