    Hi Guys,
    I live in Sheffield S25 2RN and would like to meet up with any Ural like minded people in and around the Sheffield area and further afield as well.
    I'm sourcing parts for a diesel bike I'm working on, and at a later date I want a Ural Wolf. I used to ride a 250 and 350 Jawa's many moons ago and enjoy their character lol.
    I would like a Wolf to restore and iron out the little querks that it may have and improve on them, I do love the stance of the Ural Wolf as it has a great classic chopper/criuser style which I think will be better for my aching back lol.
    My diesel bike project will be based on the Daihatsu Charade 1.0 ltr diesel engine, there has been good results with the Ural gearbox. This is what I want for my bike and I will be upgrading the gearing to work better with the 1.0 ltr diesel engine. I will probably use a moto-guzzi frame or something similar that I find with a V5 log book that is sensibly priced.
    Any one wanting any shotblasting in the Sheffield area at a later date please drop me a line and I'll see if I can help with time permitting lol.
    Cheers4now
