I've followed that build for a while. Pretty amazing work. I remember my Virago fondly, and I can't imagine it being what he turned out with.


Signature by SpidermanSS. Thanks Shane!

I think it'll be sweet once it's finished.

I have to say the guy does great work. The only thing that is a bit wacky is how high the tail is compared to the front rake of the bike.
