Hi there I came across your site whilst browsing for bike build ideas. I thought you might like to see a couple of pics of my 1996 yamaha Virago 1100 street tracker which I’ve just finished. It has a custom built rear subframe to supper a hand made seat on a fibreglass seat base, Benelli Mojave tank, flat tracker bars, custom grips, led rear light, custom indicators, metalflake paint, lots of chrome, custom built air filter, fabricated rear number plate and light mount, harley headlamp cowl, reshaped mirrors.
I hope you like it, I have subscribed to your blog, keep up,the good work.
I love the direction he took with this. Must be a stone blast to ride!
Hi Steve !
Thank you for your great blog.
Here some pics(feel free to use them) of my home made racer, based on a 2002 Suzuki SV650.
Stock engine with KN filter and fine carb’ tune, modified titanium Akrapovic exhaust line with Shark silencer (titanium wrap) Norton racer seat, great paintjob, all mixed with ideas, friends and fun.
It’s a “budget build” … and also a “pleasure machine” built to ride the Région Rhône-Alpes, near Lyon, France.
More pics and infos (in french) on my blog :
Thanks and regards,
I saw Gary Nixon towards the end of his racing days, at Daytona going against a field that included Jay Springsteen. It was one of the Triumph Bonneville Cup Challenge races and I cursed a little when Gary had to withdraw with ignition troubles. Even at that stage in his semi-retired racing career lord was he fast.
I know it’s been a while since I sent something in, so here’s my Nixon Tribute Street Tracker. NIxon was a personal friend that I miss dearly. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor him as to have something like this to ride around….Enjoy!!

It’s anonymous reader contributions like this that are making me kick myself for staying out of my e-mail in-box and away from the blog for so long. Sweet Jesus these are fantastic!
