Thanks Petrol, he does amazing work. If he had started with an R1 instead of an Virago, it would be a MotoGp bike by now. As for handling like a pig, I doubt it (weighs only 350lbs) and if you can't appreciate someone's hard work (exceptional work at that) STFU! and keep your negative comments to someone that wants to hear it !

Welcome to the Internet forum community, where everyone's allowed to post their opinions, whether you want to hear it or not. So F-off

Jealousy...........you see it pop up anytime someone does something cool or creative that 99% of the population couldn't even dream up. You can always count on negative comments from douchebags with no ability or appreciation for anything other than cookie cutter conformism. Don't take it personal, they're too dumb/naive to see the details and appreciate any aspects of the build.

Clearly this is an exceptional build on many levels. I really like the custom machine work and engine details,(covers, lines ect.) even if a virago wouldn't be my choice to start with, I think it's turning out quite well indeed.

Haha!! I didn't downplay any part of the build... Just said it probably handles bad.

You ladies really need to calm down

So rather than comment on anything good or cool or that you like about it, you go and make a negative comment about the handling........in regards to a streetfighter no less.........that started as a virago.......

Also I don't hate it, I just don't like it.. It's an old virago with Suzuki parts... Lets not get to crazy.

Not everyone fell in love with the tron bike and it was a fully built custom
