Yamaha Virago XV750 Cafe Racer Rebuild Project inc videos
Firstly, credit to 'Fire on Dawson' for the use of their superb song - Stuck In Infinity Yamaha Virago XV750 rebuild project. A 1982 scrapper finds a new look and a new lease of life. Wire wheels would have been nice but there was a limited budget. Single seat was not an option as my son likes to ride shotgun. All was work was done at home. A 'DIY powder coating kit' (Electrostatic magic) was purchased to help with coating costs. This is a 'must have' bit of kit for any rebuild project. It payed for itself with superb results.
