The XV 750 is for sale!


The Yamaha Virago is finally ready for sale. We spent a few months getting the kinks worked out and got a new clutch installed, so it is finally ready to find a new home.

This is the Virago that Bike EXIF just ranked as one of the most popular bikes on the planet over the past 6 months. Check it out:

The bike was first featured on EXIF back in May:

The Virago is a low slung, tough looking brute of a bike with a ton of attitude. It sounds amazing; the exhaust note is one of the most unique, deep, and burbly sounds anyone has ever heard. People literally stop in traffic to stare at it, absolutely everyone wants to know what it is, and no one can believe it stated life as lowly 1982 Virago.

This is your chance to own one of the worlds most popular custom motorcycles.

Here are the build specs, don’t hesitate to call or email with questions. I can send a package of additional photos as well. One adjustment has been made since the photo shoot; a small front brake reservoir has been added in place of the tube type reservoir.

1982 Yamaha Virago donor bike with about 7,000 original miles. The bike has about 800 miles on it since completion.

There is one small new dent in the right front side of the tank where the controls hit the tank. The steering stop has been modified to prevent it occurring again. And of course, it is based on a 30 year old bike, so it isn’t factory perfect, and it doesn’t have a factory warranty, and will be sold as a private sale in “as is” condition. What it is, is a full on bad-ass, one-of-a-kind, absolutely amazing, custom motorcycle.

The bike is priced at $13,000. I’ll even throw in a custom Spin Cycle Industries hat with the bike! Shipping is not included in the price, but I will happily help you arrange shipping if necessary. I may be willing to deliver the bike in Oregon
