Gen 2 misc trim

PostAuthor: landcrab » Sat Feb 20, 2021 8:54 pm

Change in my lifestyle, cleaning out the un-necessary. Currently stuffed in box's and shoved in corners.

FED, not CA fuel tank with level sensor (1100) black sort of
XVS tank decals, 4
front and rear fenders, grey, fair shape, pretty sure all the grommets are there
rear fender, teal and cream, good shape again pretty sure about the grommets and front fender same color match with an ugly gash
OE luggage racks, 2, one nice and one freckled with rust stains
passenger backrest with pad
grab bar for no backrest
couple of original Yamaha no cushion pegs
complete final drive
I have what I think to be an OE accessory light bar. Perfect fit at bottom of triple tree. Only other one I ever saw was a picture of some dude named Marty on a curve near Ashville. PO told me his wife put my bike down at highway speeds somewhere in Montana. The lamps, bars and tank have been replaced but I still have to bind the forks on re-assembly and there is a slight tweek on the left lamp mount on this light bar. You should be able to reshape.
the boxes of mirrors/fasteners/lamp assy will wait until later because they don't take up much space.
I have watched the Virago parts availability dwindle and hate to throw anything out, but!

I am thinking, donate all sales income to maintain the site. Sale price must meet or exceed 10X shipping cost which I will pay. Seems to me that shipping outside North America, the cost may exceed the value but I am sure there can be some flex/moderation. Need a moderator... to let me know if this "pay it forward" can be done.
I will make pictures available as needed but no rushing and panic, I am an old man with few Geek skills and I still work 13 X 5.

yep, it's starting to look like there actually will be a 'spring' (for spring cleaning?) this year, after the extended freeze ended [don't know how you 'further-north' folks survive the below-zero winters]
100 degree F, no sweat. :r: Zero degree F, no-way! :ops:

I hear ya'. I too am a bit digitally challenged, but uploading attachments to your posts aren't too difficult using the tab just below[left] the "submit" button.
for me it's easier if I save pic in a file on my device beforehand [<600 pixels size, please] here's a free, easy to use app to shrink if needed >>> http://www.shrinkpictures.com/
& you can "preview" before submit to see if it's how you want it.
also [FWIW] next pic stacks on top the previous one.

@landcrab, let me be certain I understand you correctly. you are selling some of your extras and want to donate the proceeds to the site?

if I have that right? --- then 1st thing ---> :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

next, maybe we should move topic to items for sale, vs wanted? [MODS --- I need your digital help. I don't want to accidently screw-up or delete this post]

Yes it can be done. I moved this to Pay it Forward.

Thanks for putting me in the right place because yes the site gets the profits. I just want to be rid of it and yet don't want to throw it away. I worry my treasure is another mans junk. I got the 600 pixel note and even though I am not certain how small a pixel is I should be able to handle that.
I feel for y'all in the Great republic, You are in the news too much lately. It has actually been a pretty warm winter here in my neck of the woods and not much sub-zero time. I moved from Cape Sarachef Ak. to Port Isabel Tx. and thought I had died and gone to hell. Just about the time I got accustomed to palm trees and sticky heat I got moved again. We are a fairly adaptable species.

Yup.
being there can be (at times, IMO) like being in the infernal region,
sorta' like living in a sand-blowing sauna. Thankfully we only have 1 or 2 days a year like-that here [near Austin].

I like the heat, & humidity is ok, but it can suck when both are together at high levels. [although better that than -0 F and % humidity] :naughty:
