Russia Post

I love sourcing spares for my Dnepr rebuild, which is moving forward slowly.

I needed some warning lights as the ones that I had were damaged. I ordered these ones from an eBay seller in the Russian Federation for twelve quid, post free. They arrived in ten days.

Cheap and quick delivery. What’s not to like?


Another interesting vehicle spotted in my local supermarket carpark.

Simply The Best

Soviet Police

This Ural motorcycle outfit in original USSR police colours was recently for sale in Sweden.

The bike came complete with original paperwork, original paint, and USSR police accessories such as the illuminated stick for directing traffic, phone with antenna, flashing lights and siren.

About ten years ago I was offered a similar bike, a solo Ukrainian police machine in blue and white. I dithered a bit and by the time I decided to buy it it had been sold. Should have made my mind up quicker.
