Ural Cafe Racer

If you’re in a giving spirit, want to help a worthy animal related cause, and are a fan of unique café style bikes, then this is one for you. European Cycle Sports and BMW Motorcycle of North Dallas in Texas have built a tasteful café racer style using a URAL Solo as the basis for this charity raffle. On December 12, 2015 the bike will be raffled off benefiting the ARF House Animal Refuge in Sherman, Texas

This 2013 750cc URAL was re-envisioned by the skilled hands at European Cycle Sports in Plano, Texas. The Ural Cafe Racer comes with trusted performance parts like: Brembo front and rear brakes, Marzocchi front forks and Progressive rear shocks. The Solo’s tractor seat was upgraded with a vintage Triumph bench seat.

The high-water airbox has been removed and the bike is now running free flowing cones alongside rejetted carbs. Low slung drag bars and modern low profile turn signals, bar end mirrors and a clear cat’s eye tail lamp solidify that vintage feel. Both of the large OEM fenders were removed; gaiters were added to the front forks along with a set of street-able knobby tires in the front and rear. It’s a tasteful build on one of the most unlikely platforms and that’s exactly why it’ll turn heads at every gas station and rest stop.

Eurpean Cycle Sports says 1800 tickets were printed and roughly 700 remain as of late November. Tickets are affordable at a $20 donation for five tickets. Tickets are available at European Cycle Sports, 900 K Avenue, Plano, Texas, during normal business hours or through the ECS website,–fundraiser.

ARF house is a non-profit sanctuary for abandoned and abused dogs. If space is available, they will accept any dog that doesn’t have a home. Currently, they care for 350 dogs. They spay and neuter all dogs and provide them with whatever medical attention that is needed. Sadly, many dogs stay at ARF house for life and facilities such as these give animals a desperately needed second chance at finding a forever home. To learn more, visit the ARF House.

Please spread the word about not only this worthy cause but an opportunity to take home what looks to be a very fun URAL in the process. Helping dogs and the chance of picking up a cool bike, what more could you ask for?
