One of these Russian bikes like Ural? The rectangular back lamps are looking this way.

The Ural-bikes are finally based on BMW-pre-war-bikes. After 1945 the Russian Army has moved the complete BMW-bike-factory from Berlin to Russia, including all machines, tool and construction-documents.

Same thing they'd done with the Opel-factory in Brandenburg. This is the reason, why the first Moskwitsh is a copy of the Opel Olympia.

I found this one: http://www.ural.at/nf/mt16/bild_02.jpg It's a DNEPR MT16. Ural and Dnepr are very similar, I believe.

This bike is Dnepr MT10 or MT11 since it has long saddle. MT16 has separate saddles for driver and passanger.
And for history that Ingo mentioned, it´s not true.
Russians started to produce M72 bike (flathead) in 1939 after Germans gave them documents and machinery to produce a copy of BMW R71 because of Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.
After war they did, however take BMW factory and contnued buiding another models in DDR, like EMW´s.
