Yamaha Virago description

This is my 1981 Yamaha XV920RH. It is the European version of the Virago. It is not shaft driven, it is chain driven.  I put the Greg Hageman Cafe Kit on it, as well as Vance and Hines Exhaust. New Tuff seat, and  Tires are new front and rear. Rear wheel has a slight wobble at low speeds when you put on the rear brake. Wheel is balanced so It is in the brake drum or shoe itself. It is still safe to ride, and I rode it all summer. It is a fun bike to ride, and gets lots of attention.  Paint is original, and in good shape. Has dings in the tank where the handlebars bumped it. I do have original rear fender and seat if somebody wanted to bring it back to original. However I do not have original handlebars. This is a no reserve auction, starting at 1500.00   Much less than I have invested, but I am ready for a different project.  

To See a video of the bike running, go to Youtube and put in the name Tazzymotoface

When it comes to improving the performance of a motorcycle’s weakest link, Nick Ienatsch and Ken Hill have taken on an enormous task. You see, this link is always changing and never constant, but can be molded and improved. It’s not a motorcycle at all.

In order to use footage from a Dorna-sanctioned MotoGP test session — say, for marketing or promotional reasons — a team must receive approval from Dorna. The process is tedious, and even if permission is granted, there are strict limitations as to what the material may or may not be used for. So when Honda decided to conduct its own private test (which Yamaha also joined), at the Circuit of the Americas, it was free from any and all Dorna mandates.
