    Will David (Voodoo Vintage) make me a hard tail that doesn't exist yet if I win? lol I have an 86 XV750 Virago on the go right now. Due to the weird frame they used it would be pretty challenging for us both I think.

    Here is the link to my build thread http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43533

    A couple pictures: First is the bike as I bought it. nearly stock with changed handle bars and air filter, sissy bar removed.


    Second is a shot of the new single carb manifold I made and new air filter


    Also have a set of new mini apes I made to go on and am fabbing forward controls now. A sick custom hard tail would just set off the whole build!

    I'd like to see a hard tail for a Virago. I got a 88 1100 I'm doing a thread on right now. My guess is that it would be a huge pain in the ass. That shaft drive might be a bitch to integrate in to the hard tail. I thought Doctor Virago had done it but it turns out he has a chain drive. http://doctor-virago.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_U_0uRPeDs

    Hi there Juan,

    Man... I'd love to tackle the Virago, but there are several key factors making it too difficult and expensive for the common consumer.

    First off... The frame is a series of stamped panels vs. a tubular frame like earlier model bikes.
    Not only that... But the frame actually serves as an air box passage and has electrical components molded into it's side.

    Second... The Virago is a shaft-drive, which means in order to design any type of "flowing" hardtail, the shaft would have to be split and extended, then re-welded and balanced.
    This would be way too much "machining" for the typical consumer.

    Another option would be to convert it to a chain drive, but yet again... the cost and technical barrier is still too steep to be mounted within a reasonable investment.

    If you are looking for a bad to the bone V-twin build, I would suggest slapping the motor into a full custom frame and converting it to chain drive. Don't plan on selling it soon after you finish however. You'll probably end up investing twice what the value would be.

    Sorry about that partner, but some models are best geared toward a Cafe' or Brat-Style conversion vs. hardtail rigid.

    Hope this helps?

    All points I am aware of Exactly why I said it would be a challenge for everyone lol. As for me though the frame as an air box is no longer an issue and electrical will all be redone anyway (I hope) but the shifty etc is still and will stay an issue as I don't have the tools or experience to do the necessary work. Guess I'll have to stick to a cheap n easy bobber build or go towards a Brat style as mentioned. Guess I'll track ya down for build #3 or #4 or #5 lol

    1981 Suzuki gs650g. This is how it looked the night I brought it home two months ago. Clubman bars were yucky looking and have been shelved.

    I really can't get my bike to look "right". A hardtail would get me to where I want to be!

    Default 1999 Suzuki Marauder vz800



    this is ol' Suzi, it's the bigger version of the ls650, she's a fun bike but not too popular for people who build bikes, nobody makes hardtails or frames for them. I put some struts in and mounted a sissy bar and new fender, I think a hardtail would make it look so much better. I know you don't make hardtails for these bikes but I'm having my friend take some measurements on his savage's back end to see how they match up. They're similar except the savage has a single tube back bone and the marauder has a weird double thing going on, but if I cut the hardtail's backbone off and just used the bottom end I think it would fit on the marauder. If I had measurements of the hardtail I could tell you... Anyways this bike is a work in progress and it would be cool to make it a real chopper, but if you already know it's not possible to make it fit I understand.

    I'm in the same boat as that guy up there ^^^ I have an 04 vz800 so I'm out, but I just wanted to pop in and say this is a badass giveaway. Very awesome of CC to put these contests on and cool of companys like voodoo to contribute. Good luck to those that are able to participate.

    Here is my little kz440. It is a "hardtail" but not a true "hardtail." I did what I could with what I had. I got some more pics on my instagram (hotrodchriz). I think a true hardtail would really set it off. Shout out to voodoo vintage and chop cult for this awesome giveaway!
