Motorbikes using Dnepr Parts

VW diesel motorbike by Russ (Mouse).

Russ picked up this 1995 VW 1.9Litre Golf engine for a grand total of £21and fitted it into an old Dnepr frame. It's seen here at the 2011 Hamm Rally. The motorbike made it there and back despite having to recieve a new battery on route. Months later it put a piston through the side of the engine and sadly is no more. More on this bike on the forum.

Russ is known on the UK Ratbike scene for his diesel motorcycle builds.

To find out more about Johnny's bike you can vist a website which gives details of all the German Daihatsu conversions. Johhny tells me he decided to get his bike registered in England (see the plate) so as to simplify the matter. It is about 9 years old and the 1000cc engine is housed in a Dnepr frame.

The Romanian Karpaten Diesel Motorcycle


The frame is a Dnepr but I have no idea about the origins of the engine (unless its a Karpaten).

Russian Diesel Motorcycle?

I saw this machine at the 2003 Rally, thinking at first, it was a 1000cc Hatz powered Dnepr. But on closer inspection it appears to be a Kubota powered bike.


Looks very like the Loew bike......but I don't think it is.
