    Xj900 Yamaha

    I like the looks of it especially from behind, but...that tank needs something on the sides. It doesn't flow at all. I still have issues with my tank on my Virago and the lines flowing into the seat. Other than that I do like it and think it is a good build. Add some more pics. I would like to...

    Cafe XV920R Mega-Build

    I'm definitely in on this one. The custom work is very impressive! Can't wait to see the end result. My question is, will there be room for the rear exhaust pipe?

    1969 Yamaha DS6C

    Picked up a 2-stroke barn find. PO says that in 1978, it was driven into the garage and parked there. Hasn't seen the light of day since. For the price I couldn't pass it up. The good...she seems to be complete. Only thing I can see missing are the air filters. The bad...She is completely...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe Thanks! I haven't messed with the jetting yet. My carb guy has been doing small adjustments and it runs really well. I'm kinda waiting to make sure before I pull the carbs which is a huge pain and is going to chip up my paint and take 3 hours of my life every...

    Wait, its not a CB?

    I agree with what most are saying. I have ridden and owned dozens of bikes and it took me 3 years to get mine to where I was happy and had everything worked out (which I still have a little left to do). Fix it, ride it. Learn what you can and regurgitate it (something a teacher used to always...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe Perfect! That is why I posted it. You may want to do it in a slightly thicker steel. Mine has become a little distorted over time. I still have some tweaks to fix here and there and that is one of them. Now that my friend has a mill, I can send him drawings and...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe Riding through town today. Passed the local Auto Parts store/bar/Harley hangout (yeah that kind of town). Two burly Harley dudes out front and one points at me and says "check that out" to his comrade (I can read lips) and gives me a thumbs up. I give a thumbs...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe It has been a blast. Been riding all weekend. Rode it to work today. Had a few issues to take care of. Found that my right side gasket was leaking oil all over my new shiny parts. Easy fix as I had the gasket already. The master cylinder is still a little...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe Some small scrapes, but the left horn was a smashed. So it seemed that it took the brunt of it. The scrapes are fixable. I got it up there and wiggled it to make sure it stayed. Turned to get the strap and I did get distracted for about 2 minutes longer than I...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe I have been sloooowly getting things together. Right now I am having clutch and front brake issues. I was putting on the clutch cable and somehow broke the push lever assembly on the side case. Thank god for Amazon Prime! Where it would take over a week to get...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe Update. It's been slow going all weekend. Re-writing for my keyless ignition. Also extending some wires to get everything to fit under the subframe and battery box. Wiring for the relocation of the battery. I have had success as the wiring is right and I...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe No I have the Harbor Freight (which was on sale yesterday for like $54 if you were a member of their club, $69 for regular folks like me). Mine works well. It just takes time getting used to controlling the flow of powder. There is an adjustment on the gun...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe I'm no expert or pro... so what I do is blast the piece and wipe it down with acetone. I have bare stranded 6AWG ground wire that I untwist the individual wires off to use as hangers and a spot to attach the negative lead for the gun. For large pieces, I take...

    Re: 82 Virago 750 Project Cafe More baking today...I feel like Betty Crocker. I think I am almost done. I had to redo one piece as I wasn't happy with the original results.
