Kevin, did I read your news letter right. You are going to offer a G5 Military? When? Where?

Will it have gaiters? Will it have fender stays? Will it have the triangle or pill shaped toolboxes? As a G5 I imagine: Yes, no, pill shaped.

just got the newsletter myself. geeze, this makes the decision even harder. i think i'm going to keep with my original plan of a Deluxe with the standard black fenders, but damn if that matte green isn't tempting...

I feel your pain. I was all set to order a Black Deluxe this summer. But a G5 Military, might have to wait and see how that one looks. I might match my Ural.

aren't the new G5 militaries going to be sans crash bars and military panniers? Sorta makes it a standard G5 with olive drab doesn't it?

yeah, but i never liked the metal panniers or the crash bars of the military bike in the first place, and getting an olive drab paint job is more work (and probably more expensive), so getting a military G5 would be worth it.

though in the end, i'm probably just going to get a black Deluxe and get some black fenders to get the look i really want.

Anybody know if the old style triangular tool box will fit on the G-5 without a lot of fabrication ?

The triangular boxs can't really be retro-fitted to the UCE Military. The frame will not accomodate them

Just remember - nothing is true until it's been OFFICIALLY denied -  ;D So - this doesn't exist, I haven't ridden it and it hasn't attracted any crowds at all ....  ;D  ::)
