What we have here is what started life as a Yamaha Virago 750 shaft drive. Don't be put off and read to the end! Once I got my hands on it I decided to get to work to transform the bike into something more interesting and unique!. The old seat and bodywork was removed the rear frame cut down ( wheelbase etc the same ,done by myself with 25 years in car body repair industry) and custom fenders made and fitted, topped off with a chrome tombstone rear light and skull indicators. The ugly original king & queen seat  being replaced by a sprung saddle (surprisingly comfortable!)   like what you would find on the Harley Davidson cross bones. The brake system was drained flushed had new Venhill braided/stainless steel brake lines installed and new DOT 5 fluid.
 Oil and filters changed ,new drive shaft and gearbox oil.
The front forks had a rebuild using stainless internals, new seals etc. Rear suspension units were replaced with new items, carburettors had a rebuild kit.
The old chrome work on the bike was removed and had a new coat of high quality gloss or satin Black paint applied on the engine parts and on the unusual spoked alloy tubeless rims.
Remus exhaust fitted ,not too loud and MOT legal.
A new set of coils and a new regulator/rectifier fitted. 
The tank and fenders were finished off in brilliant rover BIOMORPHIC GREEN.
Flat track bars installed and a small screen fitted.
Registered in my name to my home address.
Lots of history and receipts.
Reason for sale is I want a change and get an adventure bike.

Mileage might go up a little during the good weather.

Any viewings welcome, but a test ride will require proof of insurance and a refundable deposit.
The winning bidder will have to pay a deposit of £100 with-in 12 hours via pay-pal of the auction ending .

Thanks for looking!
P.S Please don't E-mail me asking what the price I would accept. If you are genuinely interested just place a bid. Thank You.  You are bidding to buy not to tyre kick!
