Virago ‘studio’ shots
We’re pretty excited to finally be able to post the fantastic photos of the Virago that our friend Alan Brandt took several weeks ago. We have been trying to keep these a bit under wraps until the bike was featured on the venerable motorcycle blog Bike EXIF. The bike should be popping up on that site any day, so, here they are. This is moto eye-candy bike porn at its very best. Enjoy.

We have to offer a huge thanks to Alan for the amazing photos and quite a bit of post production work to get them looking fantastic. Alan is absolutely top notch in our books. All photos are compliments of and copyrighted to Alan Brandt photo.
Once again, we have to offer a big thanks again to everyone that helped make this project possible:
Brandon at the Motoshop for hunting down all of the weird random parts we’ve needed.
Jaxon for getting the old girl running, and doing it under the pressure of a big deadline.
Andy Wachs for his welding help.
Tracey & the crew at Commercial Powdercoat for making the bikes shine.
Our buddy Wade at Vulture Cycles for some high quality TIG work. Wade, we may have a big project for you to help us with in the future…
John Ryland at Classified Moto for performing the fork swap for us, and for providing the inspiration to start this project.
All of our good friends who have stopped by and offered encouragement during the course of the build.
Our rat-moto builder friend Lee that lent us his MIG welder. Definitely could not have done it without the little Hobart.
Of course, Chris at Bike Exif for featuring the bike.
Our buddy Rex at Garage Project in Perth, Western Australia who builds cool bikes and encouraged us to start this blog in the first place.
and finally, Phil for helping us through some of the most challenging parts of the build.
Thanks all. It was a super fun project, and it is a SUPER fun bike to ride!!
