Here’s the first Ural I’ve ever featured on Return of the Cafe Racers and I’m sure you will agree it’s worthy of a mention. Ural motorcycles have been around since 1939 so I’m a little ashamed to admit it’s the first, but the truth is that custom Ural’s don’t come along all that often. Ural motorcycles were developed for the military during World War II with the first model being based on BMW’s R71. These days Ural’s range is dominated by sidecar equipped models but this Ural’s been stripped of the extra weight to get the most out of it’s boxer engine.

At first glance you could have mistaken this bike for another great build from CRD motorcycles in Spain but this build comes to us from the Ukraine. Built by Dozer Garage who blew me away with their XS650 “Goldfish” Bobber last year, they’ve named this bike ‘Ural Fashion’ which I can only assume is because it looks so damn good!

The 650cc Ural now sports a Dneper (Ukrainian motor cycle manufacturer) 4 speed grearbox and headlight, Posh grips and bars, Shinko classic tread tyres and plenty of custom made parts. Dozer fabricated the exhaust headers and mated them to megaphone style mufflers. They heavily modified the Ural frame and added plenty of custom copper work giving it’s engine a steampunk look. Finally a custom made seat wrapped in milk chocolate brown leather and a matching paint scheme finish off this masterpiece of custom work from a workshop that’s quickly becoming a hot favourite of mine.
