Yamaha Virago VX750 Becomes a Cafe Racer with Monoblock Rims

Yamaha’s first V-Twin Cruiser is a cafe racer with monoblock-style wheels.

In the early 1980s, Yamaha introduced the Yamaha XV750 Virago, their first Cruiser equipped with a V-twin engine.

Yamaha Virago also includes a range of old motorcycles that are attractive and ideal for customizing, even though the classic looks are unique.

An example is the cafe racer-style Yamaha XV750 Virago by Jeremie Duchampt from the slick Jerem Motorcycles below.

This Yamaha Virago gets a complete overhaul

This 1983 motorcycle underwent a complete overhaul from Jerem because of its poor condition.

The process starts with stripping down all the motor parts, which is then continued by modifying the frame and swingarm.

Then the two parts are sandblasted and given a glossy black color which gives a neat and tidy impression.

Next to the legs area, Jeremi installed a Ducati Monster front fork with a USV Racing triangle.

Then perfected with the installation of Ducati Diavel’s rims and double-disc front brakes with Brembo calipers.

As for the rear legs, the Sachs pretentiousness was removed from the MV Agusta 800 in order to compensate for the front fork earlier.

Then for the rear wheels, a rim cover is made, making it look like a cool and scary monoblock rim.

Moving on to the engine, Jeremi initially did a total overhaul but eventually did an engine swap for excellent performance.

In addition, a Dellorto PHF32 carburetor with a filter pod and a custom 2into1 exhaust system was also installed.

The engine gets an engine swap

In terms of bodies, a custom cafe racer seat is installed above the new subframe, which is combined with the default tank.

Then the cockpit is attached to clip-on handlebars with a Koso speedometer, bar-end mirrors, and minimalist LED lights.

Finally, for finishing, the tank and front fender are given an Audi green color that contrasts with the black color on the frame and engine.

As a result, the Yamaha XV750 Virago has transformed into a cafe racer that looks cool and dashing.
