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??
You could go yellow & red!!!




Oh, that's already been done.

Would you mind if someone carted you around in their pannier, or tied you on to the handlebars?

You blokes with Urals might have noticed the four holes that aren't normally there.




Well they are the start of this.



When we were first talking about doing this, Nev said he wanted some luggage racks on the body. He brought some pics that he had downloaded and the following was what we came up with.






















A little bit of a clean up and the front one was ready for the powder coaters.




Then the one for the rear

The bike in the background is my half started K1100 project


After the racks were done we had to have a look at mounting a screen. Eventually came up with the following and Nev's going to get a custom screen made once the whole thing is assembled.

Nev, dont you dare paint it any Fucking KTM colour

Your idea re message is the way to go.

I like the XJR1300 that Phil is doing. Usually the Suzuki 1400 gets the nod.

Yeah, comeon Dave, pull yer finger out

Clancy, you da man! Damn, those racks look nice.

I saw them at nev's place after they were powder coated but the great on the chair.

Want some more work? I need some racks made up for the Strom to fit my panniers.

Thanks Davo The credit should go to Nev though. He had the ideas, I just made the stuff. Phil's work is pretty bloody good though.

Thanks mate, but it really is only basic stuff. Go take a look at some of the work the NASCAR fab guys do. Now THAT's really good stuff.

The work hasn't stopped
Phil is still working on the bike and mating up the sidecar frame. I'm sure Nev will post up some pics of that.
The body is at the paint shop, getting prepped and waiting on a colour decision.
All the farkly bits have been powder coated and ready for refitting.
