    I'll live with the Modtops for several months and then decide what to do.

    There's nothing wrong quality-wise with KMZ bikes from the 60s and 70s. They were probably better than their IMZ contemporaries.

    The prevalence of kit bikes has given Dnepr's a bad rap. (Thanks, Yuri.)

    Gotta go with Eastbloc on this one. They may not be high tech but I cut my teeth on triumphs of the same era and the build and material quality of the KMZ is definitely no worse than the Triumphs. If nothing else it is good to not be dealing with Whitworth and UNF threads. :happay

    I've put a pic of this sidecar of here before. But this is a pic of the hack riding out on the sand in the Outer Banks, NC. My brother was following in his Jeep. Was a little rainy so didn't take many pics.

    Agent,
    Like those Transalp and SV650 sidecars you posted. I had two 1989/1990 Transalps years ago and they were fine motos.

    Hauling a bale of straw for a little erosion control.

    Looking good.

    What wheel are you running on that? Is it a stock Ural axle?
