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
