Cole Matson’s Yamaha XV920 Cafe Project

| December 18, 2013 | 2 Comments

From Cole – Here is my XV920 that I picked up for a very fair price about a month ago. I have the hopes of modifying it and so far ive got it stripped down and starting to mock it up for the subframe. I picked up a new tank for it, its a mid 70s XL 350 tank and so far im really liking the look. If anyone has any good suggestions on wiring ill gladly take any ideas.

    Viragos are strong engines and were always very popular. I spent many years at a large Yamaha dealer and worked on many. There is a multi spark ignition available to reduce the starting issues these bikes had. You should consider one for your awesome ride. Great job! (C5 Performance is the company making a Virago kit right now).
