I used to fancy one.

Check this out. No need to watch the first half. I’m not talking about the flooded engine, more why the drive had gone.

They certainly used to make solos but looking through a few sites, I can't find any reference to new ones... As a matter of interest, the bikes in the video appear to be fitted with some sort of stand, even though they are obviously dedicated sidecar units with the third wheel driven...

I was wondering, as I'd seen brand new "old style" lada niva 4x4's for sale new in Azerbaijan and thought they might be still making the airhead Ural even if they didn't export them to Europe.

The only bikes I ever saw in Azerbaijan were dirt bikes or foreign registered BMWs or Harleys.
I saw Ural outfits in Russia, but they didn't look new !

I don't think my K100RS outfit will do that, but then
I'm not about to try either.
