Came across this splendid oldie parked at Broughty Ferry harbour yesterday. Its registration number indicates 1976, but it somehow looks older. With the sidecar on the right, it has probably originated from a country where they drive on the right. It also had a towbar and ball to attach a trailer!

Nice find Mike.......does look a very old machine and probably 1976 was when it was first registered in the UK. Not very knowledgeable about bikes but from the design of the frame and the front forks it looks possibly like a machine from the 50's.
It's really nice when you find something out of the ordinary like this.

It's a "Ural," previously called a "Cossack."
A Russian made machine (there's a clue in the name!) and although based upon based upon an ancient BMW design, this probably isn't old at all.

There are various versions, which can still be bought today.

if the www is any indication then Ural is building their bikes with disk brakes (Brembo!) since 2003 or so. Having owned one myself in 1965
I would put this one at about the same age bracket. Definitely an "old timer" in it's own right Smile
