Exceptionally well documented and edited video about restoring the old Russian heavy sidecar motorcycle called IMZ-Ural
In 1940 the Soviet Union acquired the design and production techniques for BMW R71 motorcycles and the sidecars. The first M-72 model was finished in 1941. Initially, the “URAL” was built for the military only. In the late 1950 the KMZ plant in Ukraine assumed the task of supplying the military and the Irbit Motorcycle Works (IMZ) focused on making bikes for domestic consumers. In the late 1950 the full production of the plant was turned over to non-military production. In 1957 the M-72 production lines were sold to the People’s Republic of China.
