    The viking pictures were from a cyclocross race. We rode around and clubbed people on their helmets as they passed us. The downhill was kind of gnarly and we flipped the first time we went down together, so the monkey dismounted after that.

    I have decided to thin my list of projects I have just sitting in the garage. I will probably end up replacing it with another project but that is how things go.

    This was built by Doug Bingham at Side Strider for Bob Braverman, the editor of cycle guide, 1n 1971. It started out with a 500cc H1 kawi motor and then was upgraded to a 750cc later in its career. I purchased this , less an engine, off of Ebay a couple of years ago. As you can see it was pretty complete less engine when I bought it.
    So far what I have done is sand blast and prime the frame, had the wheels powder coated, new tires and bearings all the way around, new deck for the monkey, found a complete set of H1 expansion chambers to modify for the exhaust and have a complete roller 1972 H1 (less title) to go with the project. There is some minor rust on the hubs for the wheels and I have not completed the body work on the fairings. The engine did fire up when I picked up the donor bike, but unknown if it will now. There is a fuel tank that sets behind the engine, not shown, and the small tank on top of the frame.
    I also have some of the original magazines with the articles about the hack and Doug Bingham gave me copies of the complete series of articles. This machine has a lot of racing history including Bonneville and if you could figure out how to make it street legal would be a blast.
    I am asking $1200.00 for the whole package (hack and donor H1) and of course price is negotiable. As far as shipping this is going to be a come and get it or we might be able to work out a delivery compromise.
    The yellow and blue was when I picked it up. looks like somebody might of had it on the street at one time.

    I know a lot about them. That is a Ural Cargo Box, and I have one. They are not made anymore, and are very hard to find. If I didn't have one already, I'd be all over that.

    They have a top hinged gate in front, and actually have a dump mechanism. You fill it full of dirt, pull up to the hole in the ground, and dump the load into the hole, then back away. That was the premise. Most people never used the dump mechanism, and just welded the hinge down to the subframe. Mine is like that. Rhino line the inside, and you've got the perfect small pickup truck in sidecar form.

    Cleaned up, it can look a little something like this.

    RD,
    I sure can't tell much from those CL pictures but is it just the box or the complete sidecar? If it is complete then that is a deal.

    The pictures are awful. He says it is complete, never used. From what I can see in the tub on the second photo, there looks to be some frame and suspension parts. Even if it is just the tub, wheel, and fender, it is still a deal at that price. This is the first cargo box I've seen pop up for sale in several years. I would love to have a second, but just don't have the room for it. Although, MrsDonkeys thinks it would make a cool bed for the future crumb-snatcher.

    Awesome! Sounds like a lot of people are curious, both here and on Steeds.

    While my Ural is probably my most fun rig, my Bonnie/Cargo rig is the most functional by far.

    Just back from Elma. Marty is an older guy in declining health who has bought a lot of stuff over the years from storage lockers and yard sales. Ken is a younger guy who is helping him to sell the stuff on Craigslist for a cut. Here is a pic of the two of them in the storage locker with the car--

    [​IMG]


    Marty is hesitant to sell it--he says he wants to find a bike and turn it into an outfit--but I think that's just a dream. Asking price is $800 for the complete car including the wheel, fender assembly, frame and struts. The car is rust free except for a little bit of surface rust. The nose got crumpled at some point and was repaired. Pics below show the repair from the outside (the area with primer paint) and from the inside--

    Here are the other pics I took--

    Since I'm not a Uralist, I don't know if this is a good deal or not. Or if it's complete. One thing I noticed missing is the two clamps that attach the car to the front of the frame. And, of course, no seat. He does have a chrome front rack but I'm not sure if it mounts under the nose as a bumper/light mount or on top of the nose for luggage--but I think it was an undermount. Marty also said he had a rack for the spare tire somewhere but I didn't see it. Apparently he has his stuff scattered in 4 different storage units. He might actually have it. No latch or other hardware on the trunk lid. I didn't try to open it.

    If interested, Marty's phone number is 360 861 8762 and Ken's is 206 972 2361.

    RD and Barnone--I'm not a "Steeds" member so feel free to repost this info and the pics over there.

    Ohh, almost forgot to mention. They don't own that Ural Cargo Box sidecar anymore. Some guy from Tacoma bought it this morning. :evil

    Was the guy who bought it an inmate named Drone? If so, good on you! I'd just be happy to see an enthusiast get it and do something with it versus someone getting it who will let it sit in a garage for another decade.
