Dnepr Part three

So the Dnepr has ended up becoming a bit of a money pit. Pretty much everything mechanical has been replaced (sometimes twice – as per the carbs … now fitted with a pair of Mikunis and the electronic ignition – now on its second coil pack)) but with the help and skill of my mate and old school mechanic John the old girl is running lovely. Its been to a few shows and seems to confuse even the old school “expert” who seem to confuse it with a wartime BMW (yes I put a distressed BMW badge on the tank) R75 or R51.

To confuse things further I was able to source (from the Ukraine) a pair of BMWesque valve covers!
