Donor bike!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2 into 1 intake using modified stock carb
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Paint and Polish
 
 







 
Fabbed up a custom battery box for the Ballistic 8 cell battery and fit it where the center stand used to be!

Chopped stock fender and DIY Solid Peg Rearsets
 
 

 
 
 
Custom fabbed rear subframe built to fit the profile of a Moto Lana Seat. It also holds the electrics and built in brake, running and LED signals.

Custom billet upper triple clamp available from Bullit Custom Cycles and the assembly starts!!!










 
 
 







 XV535 rear hub machine to fit the 750 Virago. Thanks Knifemaker!!!







 




Modified a replica Benelli Mojave tank by adding stock Virago gas cap and tunnel. By doing this the tank sits lower not showing the frame giving a cleaner look and uses the stock location that helps hide the wiring.
