The people’s motorcycle

This month’s LUGNuts build challenge, is called “Behind The Iron Curtain!” and is all about building vehicles from (former) communist countries.

Russian Ural 2

Rather than a Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby, the sort of thing Lino Martins (Lino M) normally builds for these challenges, he now brings us something rather more utilitarian and military: a classic Ural motorcycle as used by the Red Army during WW-II, built in olive green and black. Not one to forego flashy colours, he presents it together with a brick-built Soviet Flag. Classy!
