I am selling my 1982 Yamaha Virago XV750 that was converted into a unique café racer. I bought this originally from a Dealer in California last summer. The reason for the sale is I have not been able to ride this bad boy enough. I have put less than 12 miles on the bike. My virago was locally built by the guys at Roast Moto in Tempe, AZ where it currently is getting a carb sync done and oil change. The bike runs and rides, all electrical works etc.... I will provide the RO from the work being done now. This bike was torn completely down when built, it has an R1 front end, custom pipes, custom seat, the engine was rebuilt, clip on handle bars. I also have an R1 taillight that I can throw in as well as an R1 monoshock if you would like to do an upgrade. I also have a spare battery. Again I am selling as I just haven't found the time to ride so the bike is just sitting. See pictures below only difference the tank is now painted black with new handlebar grips and added the end mirrors. The price is 6800 Obo, as a custom build like this can cost up to 10K from scratch. Also I have the title in hand!!!! Please email Brad to come check it out or for more pictures.

Uh, does that $6800 include fenders, paint on the tank & mufflers?
Lastly, did it sit to long in the Sun?
'Cause the shift linkage rod seems to have sagged somewhat.

Pretty sure you nailed it! What a POS! No way anyone in their right mind is gonna buy that for the asking price, but hey, it IS in Tempe AZ and the heat frys folks brains there. I know, I used to live there.

That is a whole lot of unoriginal Hipster bait junk right there.
The bandwagon has moved on.

First person to offer you $1000 should be mouth kissed by you.

My thoughts exactly. I can't even begin to see how $6800 is a justifiable price.
