I like the design of this bike.

Another reason could be the disc brake. The spare whell only fits in two positions.
But your reason is quite reasonable. Even the car people did that a while ago.

Tony,
The reason the thing lifts is the brakes are mounted to the swingarm. The one Richard NL pictured appears to have floating calipers which can alleviate the lift.
My R100R has fixed calipers which we may change over to floating at some time in the future.
What shocks did Lowell use?
Anyone have pros or cons to mounting the fender high or low? Swingram or downtubes? I know about clearance for mud buildup and also on the downtubes instead of swingarm it woudl seem to be less apt to be as affected by movement of the swingarm which could cause mount failure etc... Any other comments?

That’s exactly what I meant.

I mounted my fenders even higher, because otherwise my offroad tyres wouldn’t fit. At the same time this made is much easier to mount snowchains on the snowtyres. Simple story: the more space you have, the easier you can work and the need of changing wheels or mounting snowchains is most of the times at difficult places or in bad weather, when you don’t want to kneel too long.

I prefer as little "unfeathered weight" (don’t know how you call that) as possible. Moreover the risk of broken mounts is smaller.

FWIW the spare drum wheel works just fine on the disc front for a spare if you are in a hurry, you just don't have a front brake. And for those who would say you have to remove the caliper you don't, just put the drum wheel spare with the drum on the port side.

And even some peoples says that there is no difference if you have an old drumbrake in front or not. I try to remember my old Dnepr ... only the rear brake was working well

That's an "Arctic". Not a ВЬЮГА. Nice exhaust though. See you have put some more accessories on it. Street tyres, hey? That's what it makes better .......... Seen some snow lately?

Richard this is sunny California, there ant much snow! I have done some snow and mud with the stock tires. With the two wheel drive I had no problems. I am getting new tires this week that are going to be more Adventure ready.

This is what little snow Ive found.

How's it different from an arctic, aside from the missing wheel and a few bolt-on accessories?

Let's rephrase that. How is an Arctic different from a Gear-Up?

The colors of course (just kidding). Better ask the Russians or the owners why “Limited Editions” are so popular. There must be a commercial idea behind it.

Ural Pustinia (Desert), Arctic (Yep), Wjuga (Snowstorm), Vorona (Black Raven), etc. are indeed just plain Gear-Ups or Rangers or whatever you want to call them, but don’t tell the owners. I just went along with that story. Not important.

They look nice anyway.

Thanks. We built it for a great guy, Jack Hettrick. He said to post pictures. May get a leading link and car tire conversion(s) later on. Here ya go. Yes, that is a battery box.

Oh man, that is nice. Love the receiver-mounted winch. I gotta get me some of that

Do you build the battery box yourself? I'm definitely starving for some amperage. I tend to take a lot of short, 1-2 mile trips around the city where the bike barely gets to warm up. As it gets colder, each time I turn her over the sound becomes more pathetic...

Thanks Eastbloc it was afun build. Yes, we do aluminum battery boxes, panniers and so forth. Pretty much whtever size or state of finish you want.
Converting to a car battery with a hack is a great deal. They cost less and last forever it seems. Also can be placed to add a little ballast if you wish. It is not abad idea to charge them on a charger if you tend to drain them down from slow running oir powering up camp lights etc. It is good to have the reserve but some feel it is hard on the bike's charging system to have to replensh too much loss from one. I have never had an issue that way but a quick charge ever once in a while woudl never hurt. Oh and it is noce to be abel to chrge then quiker than possibel with a bike type battery. Been running car batteries on all our rigs for years.
