1996 Virago 1996 restore finished

PostAuthor: gerry113377 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 10:31 pm

I would like to say thanks for all your help. After 4 years my restore is finished. Have a look, tell me what you think. Eventually I will change the headlight and gauges. This was a complete engine rebuild with V-Star rods, PCS 10:25 pistons and a mega mild street cam. The carb is a Mikuni TM42-6. The pics are here.

You should attach the pics here instead of imgur. One day you will delete them or your acct will go dormant then no one will see them.

I like the fuel gauge.

Nice balance of black & chrome. Your right, getting around to gauges/headlight will really clean it up..wires and all. :GJ:
