The Yamaha Virago is a very popular base bike for a cafe racer project. The creator of this bike, David Bailey, not only wanted a “head turner” but also a bike which can be ridden daily. He found a XV920 in poor state and took it under his wings. He completely build this bike with is own hands, which took him a year. The result is great!
