Roosky. Either a Dnepr or Ural. Looks old enough that I'd put money on it being a Dnepr.
Outside trunk door makes it a Ural--I think.
Looks like a Ural with BMW /2 wheels.
the paint on the Tub looks CJ'ish
but isn't the open step on the frame more 650 Ural?
The Dnepr's have the rounded Fender
But this has the open Step
Dnepr frame and Tub with Ural Fender?
Either way, it's all thought to be solid stuff and if you're the handy type it's a good deal.
More details here --
This car was posted last week in the Fleabay thread.
Back in the 70s, the Ural and the Dnieper looked the same but physically, the Dnieper body was slightly smaller. Definitely a Ural (from the 70s) fender light.
If you have a /2 BMW or a conversion, those wheels are almost worth the asking price!
Here are some additional pics.
Ural for sure.
Rusty spokes are the Ural trademark.
Ya snooze, you lose. Ad gone.
I didn't snooze, I jumped right on it. Why, I do not know. I don't even think I really want a sidecar rig. I'm just curious... and you guys are so entertaining. Now, I really have to start paying attention. Anyone have a subframe for a /7 or even an r100gs gathering dust? How do I get rid of all of the rust?
Well Good on Ya!
Looking forward to seeing on how of this works out.
Rust? What rust?
Ok, so this doesn't look does it? The picture angle isn't the best, but there's definitely a bend. I've never seen an old ural frame before but guessing they don't come like that from the factory.
If I had that for a short while in a welding shop along with an oxy acetylene heating torch.
You would soon say what bend?
I should imagine Ural frames should be straight at that location to allow for easy and free adjustments .
New-ish Ural frame and tub with a older (Ural or Dnepr) M-72 or (Chang-Jiang CJ-750) fender with the light cut off and replaced with something else...
This is a CJ-750.
It has the same fender as the "for sale" hack but with a modified light.
It is hard to tell anything about M-72 and CJ-750 frames at first glance.
Their tubs have been frame-mounted, leaf-sprung, torsion bar sprung, and maybe even swing-armed with all kinds of steps to include no step at all.
This is a 2WD Ural.
See how big the step opening is?
That's because the hack wheel is set further back to line up with the rear 2WD differential.
It also makes 2WD rigs more to susceptible to uncontrolled flipping when front braking in a left hand turn!
Single-wheeled drive Dnepr.
