Seeing as I’m setting off on a Ural today, here’s a special Ural for sale. Troyka is Russian for “3-horse carriage”, which is why Ural bestowed the name on their luxury version of the Tourist. For Ural, luxury meant telescopic forks, chrome wire wheels, two-tone paint, and a deluxe sidecar.

Editor’s Note: A few weeks ago, I discovered a gentleman named Monty Myrtle. His story is very cool – and I’m going to try to get him to do an interview soon. But for now, you need to know he’s an American ex-pat that’s currently in Kiev, Ukraine. When he’s not working, he’s busy exploring the area on two wheels …
2-18-16 Update: Almost a year and a half later, this interesting hack is back up for sale. Now it’s in Playa del Rey with the same asking price ($4,500) here on Craigslist.

6-27 Update: 8 months later, it looks like this bike is now available here on Craigslist for $3,450 in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Post-Sale Update: This Ural Solo sold for an unknown amount off of eBay. When I say Ural, it’s difficult not to think of the motorcycle/sidecar combo. But they also offer the motorcycle by itself (called the Ural Solo), and …
The seller claims this is ex-Russian military, though I don’t see any proof of that given. Still, it was apparently a museum piece that was put back on the road and it will need a tune-up.
IZH was best known for making the AK47 assault rifle, though they did have a civilian division that also made cars and motorcycles – production of the latter started in 1927. Here’s an example of one of their most successful bikes, the Planeta.
Well here’s a deal you don’t see very often. Raceway Ural/Royal Enfield of Salem, Oregon has a 2013 Royal Enfield C5 in Desert Storm that has been taking up floor space for over a year (or probably more) and they’re looking to get rid of it. Their oddball idea? Buy a brand new Ural Gear-Up in the sweet white Urban …
Post Listing Update: This hack was pulled off of eBay because of “an error in the listing.” A Russian-made military bike, the “Dnepr” M-72 was used by the Red Army and was built to be a copy of the BMW R71.
