My biggest concern would be the leading link front end.
I'm also getting a BMW front end,with disc brake...we'll be swapping it out,straight away...

A Ural can be a very reliable bike. You can swap a BMW motor into it if desired. www.sovietsteeds.com is a very active web forum.

that leaves you with a spare motor for the ultralight project.

If it's a 750 I would go for it. If it doesn't have the side hack then I would not be interested either. They are made to be used as a sidecar setup and don't handle well without one. I have a 2006 Gear Up w/ 50K clicks on it. Presently rebuilding the motor after a big end rod failure. They are easy to work on as it's old school mechanics like the Enfields.
Wouldn't want to get rid of either of mine despite their failures and shortcomings as they are just too much fun to ride.
