The Yamaha Virago has been one of the best picks for the builders around the world to transform from a stock to café racer. Its engine, which is the highlight of the original machine is one of the primary reasons this bike has been admired, while on the contrary, the aesthetic scope this bike has to offer to someone who’d like to show some love to the café racer scene is really not that impressive though. Seen here, the Yamaha XV920 cafe racer by Moto-Von is one of the best examples to demonstrate the same. So lets see what it takes for a bike with fantastic engine and complicated lines to transform itself into something like what it looks now.
It all started with replacing the starter motor and clutch with a new one, then came the custom made sub frame and seat. While at the rear came the Hagon shocks, custom 2 in 1 exhaust, JM rearsets, at the front a Motogadget m-unit was fitted to accompany the progressive front springs, Tarrozi clip-ons, Magura levers, and a marvelous looking Moto Guzzi headlight. The bike wore Dunlop tires and a front fender of none other than Ducati. In the mid-section came the anti-gravity battery.
