Agreed. And the first pic of 'before and after' has two completely different engines....different engine cases, shaft drive is on the opposite side, not to mention the cylinder head and sleeve configuration....or maybe I'm misunderstanding the OP's post.

The first pic of the xv750 was mirrord to make it the same side for more like pic. I had no picture of the bike from the other side:) Its the same bike:)

Gone start a TR1 build with MT09 Frontend, rear sving and wheel build or Mv Agusta Brutale 800rr Front end, rear sving and wheel. Will Make better video on youtube of that build:) The Mt09 engine will go in a atv/quad after the TR1 build, will also film that.

So if you like this type of projects. pleace subscribe, like and share:)

Cheers and drive safe:)

I assume you mean Marzocchi front forks, but where on earth are you going to find an MV Agusta Brutale 800rr suspension that is not already attached to an MV Agusta Brutale 800rr :unsure: and if you do have access to one of those why would you not make an MV Agusta out of it? It's a way, way better motorcycle frame and engine then a Virago could ever be.
i have a 2018 mv agusta dragster 800rr that could not be road legal. Bad frame, så i use the parts for custom builds. Engine i will sell or put in a smal car or quad.

Is this much better?

or does anybody not see the folly there :unsure:
not the same, Potato and tomato
Sadly there is zero engineering going on in these builds, no practiced skills or knowledge being displayed in the execution and no destructive or non-destructive testing provided to make sure it all works.

That would be about problem number seven or maybe nine, number one folly is: None of these chop shops appear to know what a frame jig is for or how to use one. If you're going to cut, build and weld on a motorcycle frame you start with a jig to position everything in place accurately during a welding process, they don't build real motorcycle frames freehand. Folly #2: they are making the marginal strength frame significantly weaker then the original by grinding the sub-frame section from a frame that was never built with a removable sub-frame. Folly #3: they are increasing the destructive loads imposed on what's left of that hacked frame by mounting bigger, heavier tires, wheels and brakes on it, clearly indicating the chopper builder has no clue how a performance motorcycle operates or where a motorcycle frame typically cracks and breaks.
