1982 xv920 resurrection

PostAuthor: stigmatta » Sun Sep 10, 2017 10:06 am

I have been posting in the facebook group and figured i'd make a forum thread of my build as well... First a little back story, I have been a lover of Japanese bikes for many many years and fell in love with Viragos after seeing a few at bike shows so on a visist to my local bike salvage yard i ran across a deal i could not pass up, there sitting side by side were TWO 920 viragos, I paid $800USD for them both loaded them on the trailer and away i went. One supposedly had a blown motor while the other supposedly had a good motor but no tins and missing a few other parts. So i set about making 2 into 1 and this is my progress so far. I will update as more comes avalible and add more pics if I can remember the camera.

I love this paint job and will be keeping it (don't know who painted it but it is extremely pretty)
