View Full Version : XV750 - The Ulgy bike that could

07-19-2016, 2:35 PM
My first Street bike; This is going to be a story of the ugliest bike that I could ever imagine owning. It all started out with getting this 1994 Yamaha Virago ( Photos will be in order ) as this ugly green bike with stupid Ram Horn like bars on it.. But it did sound good ( for a little bike ) I ran the piss out of it that way for a few months but then, well I wanted a bigger / bagger bike. Problem was I didn't have money at all so I started looking for a fairing & found one. Then I couldn't decide on the color so I changed that a few times also - cut stuff off & put stuff on.. It was fun. But then again I wanted a bigger bike / needed a bigger bike. Well long story short I've went through one bigger bike & now have another SO this one is BACK! and I am chopping it up.
