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.

Best regards,

Russ

A seriously badass TT500 Yamaha Roadracer!


Waiting for me in my e-mail after my break. WOW!

Thanks to Alice Stevenson who wrote in:

Here are some pics of my latest build. It is a TT500 Yamaha with some modifications; mainly FZR 600 forks, wheels, and swing arm. It has a FJ600 tank. Still having teething problems, but that is the nature of the beast. This thing is a BEAST.

A nice set from our old friend Robie Pruden from the Lemay Museum Vintage bike show.


Looks like it was a heck of a nice show! Thanks Much for the pics sir!

Yo Steve ,
Good to see ya back at it.
2nd year of the Lemay Museum Vintage bike show was twice as good ! It’s theme was billed as 100 yrs of BMWs but really Italians won this battle. Way more Ducs and Guzzis. British iron held there own but my god the parking lot show was just as good, especially when the RZ350 and RZ500 pulled in together. A few pics.

A slick tracker/cafe(ish) XS650


Thanks to Steve Baugrud for the pics. This is almost a hybrid(ish) tracker cafe. I like it.

It’s a 1981 yamaha xs650 that I picked up for $100
I completely rebuild engine, including vapor blasting the jugs and case down to bare metal. Side covers, frame, forks, triples, mag wheels, swingarm, and just about everything else on bike is powder coated iron glimmer. Tires are Avon speed master mk2 front and rear. Clip ons are tarozzi, throttle is magura, and pipe is a ceramic coated one- off from gordon scott engineering. Tank is from a 1977 xs750 and seat is steel made by house on fire industries. Upholstery is genuine cow from new church moto. I threw away wiring harness and wired from scratch. I used some wrench monkey style blinkers for safety. This is my forth build. I work in medical field during day and build a bike here and there on my limited free time in my garage. Taught myself how to weld, grind, cut, etc.
thanks
