1982 Virago badges - help please

PostAuthor: vitocornelius1 » Sun May 17, 2020 2:03 pm

Hello all,

My dad is restoring his 1982 xv750 Virago, shooting for collectors plates. He's missing the side cover "virago" badges. I found 2 on ebay, but they are very rough and expensive. Does anyone have a set laying around and willing to sell? We're in Canada.

Thanks for the help.

If you search for covers and sidecovers also, you will find reasonably priced covers with decent emblems. And AFAIK the 400, 500, 750 and 920 all share the same side-cover emblems.

These may also be able to help with new repro emblems https://www.classicreproductiondecalsandparts.com/

:VTF:

You're lucky you only need the badges. Be sure to zip-tie the side covers to the frame..or you'll be going thru all this hunting again. :bg:

Don't know a thing bout Canada's DMV, but be sure to check little deeper into this. Some states, down here, say if you have collectors, vintage, classic, antique plates...that vehicle can only be driven/ridden in parades or such....and 'not' entirely street legal in the normal sense of the word. It's alotta interpretation.

Thanks for the reply - great call out. I think here its cheaper insurance, but puts a cap on how many miles/rides you can put on per month/year.
