XV750 Cafe Racer (11)

I can’t help it, but we got a submission of another awesome Yamaha Virago. And just like Bal Deo’s Virago I’ve posted last week, it’s an XV750. It’s not on purpose, it’s just how they roll in.

This bike is built by Oran, owner of Buriam Siammotor, a motorcycle dealer in Buriram. This mid-sized town which located in north-east of Thailand was selected to held Moto GP at Chang International Circuit for the first time in 2018. Oran’s family has a long history of selling motorcycles and he’s involved in the business as a youngster. A couple of years ago he bought a 1982 Yamaha XV750 without a clear idea behind it. “Simply because I love the unique sound of the V-twin and that the bike was from my year of birth.” He decided to turn this Virago into a sleek looking cafe racer.

With the help of Mee Classic Shop, a custom bike shop in the same region, Oran managed to create his very own version of the Virago cafe racer. Oan: “Many people told me to stop wasting my time with this project, but the harder they told me, the harder I pushed to get the bike ready”. Most of the parts saw the hands of the builder and he brought the machine back in shape. All parts have been painted, polished or powder coated to bring back the “shine”. Unlike many others, he did not go for the standard Mojave gas tank, but he used a complete hand-built aluminum tank. Combined with the custom subframe and seat, the bike got a beautiful classic line.
