    The 1952 KMZ M-72 was an evolved M-72 (with numerous upgrades) derived from the 1941 production run of the BMW R71. It did not replace the TIZ-AM-600 as the production stopped during the war.

    I think I must have unintentionally touched a nerve or something. Let me simplify my logic a bit.

    I bought an old Dnepr. I wanted to make it look old, so I did.

    Great history there. You should take the knowledge and update the Wiki pages addressing Dnepr M-72 production history. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dnepr_M-72

    Thanks. I was hoping I could put one on my Indian Roadmaster but the link does look promising for Indians. Oh well. Thanks anyway.

    Sorry I didn't respond sooner but we got hit by a double barrel twister. I'm still only partially dug out from all the damage but just too tired to continue. So needed a break.

    A fireman from town just 2.5 miles away got this photo and it's almost right where we live.

    Rode through Greensborough in Kansas some years ago.
    It had all but been blown off the map a year or to before by a twister a mile and a quarter wide.
    It's an amazing hazard to have to have to live with.
    Even if it's a rare thing to actually experience.
    Hope it goes well for you getting things sorted again.

    I stopped for gas in Greensburg in 2009 . There were some gas pumps , but , no building except for a small shed. About the time I was going to try my card a guy came out of the shed.
    He told me they moved most of the public buildings to different positions in town. He said they were about to move the well when someone mentioned it hadn't been damaged and worked pretty good where it was.

    Would be keen to know more about your rig, have you got a build thread? Or any details on it?

    It was early April 2009 I think.
    So we were in the same town the same year.
    We fueled up there also but there was what looked like a prefab building with a small shop etc beside the pumps.
    Was about 48f and little wife was freezing.
    She popped her wheat bag in their microwave (like a hot water bottle)
    Then put it inside her jacket for warmth.
    Ok enough thread highjacking.

    No mate i don't. I only bought it a while ago. Got it from the original owner who had the sidecar fitted. Bloke called Gnome built the subframe and body.

    And one on a Majesty.
    Both of these were at the Harvest Festival in Luckenbach , If you're ever in Texas when it's going on , it's well worth checking out.
