Ural Classic Bikes
The URAL was built for the military
only, up until the late 1950's when another plant
in the Ukraine was built to take on that job and the
Irbit Motorcycle Works (IMZ) began to concentrate
on bikes for domestic consumption. The popularity
of the rigs grew steadily with the Russian people
and in the 1960's the full production of the plant
was turned over to non-military production.
