Need a few things

PostAuthor: Quarinteen » Mon Nov 13, 2017 2:26 pm

I am looking for the following items. After market and other model and brands ok. Just as long as they fit or can be modified to fit.

Fairing - Like in the image - Can either fit or not. I want to use it for a fiberglass mold so I can make my own.
Crank Case Cover
Clutch Cover
Battery Cover
Left side covers
Exhaust
Engine - Dont need right now. Researching what I can replace the engine with. If any other bike engines will fit please let me know.
Thanks if you can help

On a side not I just noticed. Looking at engines. A used 86 engine is $400.00 or more. I find running Virago's all the time on craigslist for the same price or cheaper!! What a rip off for a 30 year old engine!!

Have you ever seen the price of older Honda Civics in good condition? After about 10 years, the price bottoms out and it no longer matters what year. Same thing with old Diesel Mercedes (240d, 300d), f150s. Hmmm, that is a pretty good list of the cars I had growing up. :bg: but we never had the good ones. Honestly 400 for a running engine doesn't sound too bad.

I don't think you will find any non virago engines that will fit. the shaft drive, and stressed member engine will make that really hard.

I don't know about current laws, but 25 years ago you could build your own bike & frame if you used the part of the frame with the vin... If I remember correctly you also want a 180 in the rear. That is how people would build bikes from beetle engines. My dad and I build a trike that looked like a harley with sidecar, and had a large box with a V6 in the back. We made the mistake of using a harley front end for the vin, had to be insured as a harley, doubled the cost of the insurance.
