Yes, this is a vanity plate on the back of a PT Cruiser.


This is an awesome Russian? bike with a sidecar. I wish I would have taken a picture of the emblem. Cherry.

    Russian is correct sir. That is a Ural, a Russian copy of a pre WWII era BMW R71 motorcycle. While gearing up for the war, the Russians wanted their own military motorcycle. So they covertly purchased five BMW R71’s and smuggled them into Russia, where they were completely dismantled and copied. They are still being sold today in much the same form as their original inception in 1939. Check this website: http://www.imz-ural.com/ You can even get one in camoflauge with an engageable sidecar drive. They’re badass. My friend Jason in Walla Walla has a Ural. He’s in the process of chopping it and turning it into a Bobber. Go to this page for a good Bobber photo: http://www.bobbertown.com/images/Ironheader.JPG The Chinese also made their own rip-off of the BMW R 71 called a Chang Jiang. They are still being manufactured as well. Check this page: http://www.chang-jiang.com/bmw/a1.html I love this stuff!

    Holy shit.. I want one! I like the “Wolf” model – looks like a mix between a Triumph Bonny and a Moto Guzzi Nevada Classic, my two current favorite bikes!
