Information: Parts from a 83 Virago (frame, electrics), 81 XV920RH (engine), 81 XJ750 Seca (tank and whats left of the seat and sidecovers), hand-formed aluminum tail and undertail. It is now my test mule for the rear suspension design. My turbo bike project is depending on this design, so am sorting it out and getting the balance right using my daily driver. Cafe racer? ....probably not. But, follows the credo: totally DIY, in my shed. mix n matching parts to reduce weight, increase performance.
