” Are there any remaining doubts about the resurrection of the Yamaha Virago XV920? If so, this latest build from Greg Hageman of Doc’s Chops should eradicate them.
“My inspiration for this bike was an old DT360 my neighbor had when I was growing up,” Greg reveals. “I just wanted to build a bike that was comfortable to ride, and would go most anywhere—including dirt and gravel backroads, not just pavement.”
This 1982 XV920 might be practical, especially as far as customs go, but it’s also powerful. The motor has been punched out to 1000cc, and Greg has fitted new Mikuni VM34 carbs, a Laser Duo-Tech mid-pipe and reverse cone mufflers. The bike is also packing a Yamaha XV1000 TR1 front end, progressive springs and an old-school XS650 fork brace. ”
