Can anyone tell me if a Ural Side car can be used with other motorcycles and if so which motorcycles?
Thanks

When you put a sidecar on any motorcycle not sold as a turnkey rig, you're in the custom world. Right now a Ural motorcycle with hack is the only turnkey rig on the market.

In the custom world you're going to have to make some parts yourself, adapt others. You're going to have to make the sidecar fit the bike.

All that said, the Ural sidecar will fit on any motorcycle - but only if you're clever enough. God luck.

Dauntless Motorcycles in WA state makes conversion subframes. They list the bikes they fit on their website and can do one-off if they have your bike available. We used one of their subframes to link a Sputnic sidecar to a BMW.
Several other firms do similar work and are familiar with Ural.
Usually less expensive, more durable and satisfactory to purchase a sidecar specific Ural all set up.
When you begin to do the modifications, steering geometry, shimmy dampers, etc. the 'ol credit card gets limp.
Good luck.

Thanks for that good advice.
The 97 Ural 750 motor is in boxes. I am thinking of replacing it with a small auto motor. The 750 motor is rated as how amny horse power? Ever tried something like this?

Thanks for the good advice. The 95 Ural's motor is in boxes so I am thinking of replacing it with a small car motor. The 750 motor is rated with how many horse power?

Well, the '97 engine was a 650, not 750. The 650 was rated at 35 horse. I doubt it really put out that much. I don't know of anyone putting it on a dyno. The 750, I think, is rated at 40 horses.
