Looks fucking cool, man! I love the way that Virago engine is so exposed. It looks raw and badass. Nice work on both of them.

Nice work. I have always considered the Viragos to be one of the (if not the) ugliest V twins ever built. Yamaha didn't give you much to work with and you did a great job.

That motor does look cool in the Virago. I would like the bike better with spokes like yours, but that is being picky. Really for a low budget bobber those are really cool bikes. I would ride the hell out of either one of them. Goes to show you can have a cool bike without spending a ton of money on it.

I like the looks of the bike and the engine and EVEN the driveshaft with hub are interesting to look at.

Wow.. that is definetly the coolest looking Virago I've seen.. Honestly I always thought they looked kind of weird because they lacked a normal frame, but that is definetly cool... 2 quick questions...
1. How did you lower the front forks? Is there a kit?
2. Where did you get that highway peg/engine guard looking thing... I"ve never seen that before....

This is awesome. This thread was my inspiration to start my Virago on its bobber journey. Here is what I've got done so far. http://www.memorytheory.com/Virago.htm Now I just need to know where to get the tubes that replace the shocks and make the bike a hardtail. Did you buy them somewhere that sells tubes like that at preset lengths or did you fab them. Either way how long are those, I love that height.
