For Sale

This is my wife's motorcycle. It's a beauty and a ball to drive. But she suffers from arthritis and riding with the clutch has become to painful for her to ride. It's garage kept, all services done and in mint condition. We purchased from a reputable dealer in the Dallas area and own the title outright.

Price $9,500
Mileage 3,666 km
Color Forest Camo

About

The official version of the Ural story reads that, after a long discussion and debate, the BMW R71 motorcycle was decided to most closely match the Red Army’s requirements for a combat motorcycle. Five units were covertly purchased through intermediaries in neutral Sweden and smuggled to Russia. Soviet engineers in Moscow busily dismantled the 5 BMWs. They copied every detail of the BMW design and made moulds and dies to produce their own engines and gearboxes in Moscow. Everything about the bike was reverse engineered. Early in 1941, the first trial samples of M-72 motorcycles were shown to Stalin, who immediately approved production of the motorcycles.

My wife enjoys taking our Rhodesian Ridgeback for rides in the side car to the dog park or around town. He thinks he's king of the world when he rides in the side car. We also have a Christmas wreath that plugs into the electrical outlet in the side car to light up and drive around town during the holidays. I drive and my wife wraps up in a heavy blanket with Starbucks.
