First Project XV125 Bobber.

Scored a Virago for nothing a few years back, been slowly pecking away at it. Almost time for me to do my full licence so trying to get as much done as possible!

First modifications.

Got some bars off an old CB250, bar end mirrors and new grips. Painted the bars black and contemplating painting the risers.


Anyone interested in the original bars? 

My first project, on a tight budget, too! XV125

Just found this website through Facebook, had a look and there's some very interesting projects! So first, I guess this is Hello! :)


Here's my project, a lovely little Virago I had for nothing, it was given to my father who's a courier, the customer didn't want it and said there was a major electrical problem. Got it hone, changed a fuse and she started first try on the button, score!
