Thanks!  I was on the fence with fork color, but glad I decided to paint them.  I'll be shortening the cables.  Was hoping some creative routing would take care of it, but didn't work.  I'll be running a small after market speedo.

damn those maxims and viragos look ugly in stock form. i had an 83 xj750 seca which didn't look much better hahah. your build is looking nice though man keep it up. definitely digging the painted forks too, I'm contemplating doing that as well.

Wow, I am converted... Virago makes a nice whip with the right man behind the wrench.
The difference between a 'bike builder' and a 'parts collector' is a fine line.

Damn, now I'm wishing I kept my Virago 750! I always loved the Zero cafes but there was so much work to be done I knew it was out of reach. Congrats!!!

Has anyone seen one of these cafe conversions done on one of the dual shock swingarm models?  I would imagine it would not be quite as slick...but I know where there is one, cheap.  My buddy has an '89 750 that I'm selling for him on eBay right now.
