It's a Ural M70 Retro, a sort of off-the-menu package from Ural. When we started Ural shopping last year we travelled down to the Portland, Oregon (USA) dealer because he had it in stock. He said he has a soft spot for the package/paint job, and after we bought it he was trying to decide whether to order another.I love that bike!! It looks super cool! Please tell me about it. I absolutely love the paint job. :wub:
It comes with the BMW-style paint job, obviously, with hand done pin striping, as well as fancier sidecar appointments, tank mounted reverse shifter, etc. We asked him to leave off the Ural tank badges so we could confuse other motorcyclists.
The people it fools the most are people with a pretty fair knowledge of old BMW's. Typical is a guy who came in to a restaurant and asked around for the owner of the rig. When he'd tracked me down he said, "I first thought that was the best /2 restoration I'd ever seen, then I saw the disc brakes and thought, well, understandable, then I saw the fuel injection and had to find out what the heck it was."
