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.

Bike Image Description
1961 Ural M-61 1961 Ural M-61

The M-61 was almost unchanged from the earlier flathead/sidevalve M-72, except for the installation of Russias first iteration of an overhead valve boxer engine. Authentic and virtually unmolested; this one does have automatic ignition advance and the bar mounted Hi/Low headlight switch, and the battery was moved to the sidecar trunk.
