Hey fellas,

 

So I recently moved out of home and realised how expensive the world is.

Especially fuel for hungry falcon.

 

This is where the bike comes in.

25km per litre is awesome, when you have to travel 120km to work and back each day.

 

2004 yamaha virago, 32,000km on the dial.

Its fun, sits on 100 alright and goes zip zip zoom.

 

The plan is to bob it. Search bobbers to get the idea

Was looking at one of these before I bought the 18. Pretty cool.

don't you need a mod plate to remove the 2nd seat or some crap like that?

Legally you do need a mod plate converting it to a one seater, rego is even cheaper then also. Most of the mods bobber guys do though probably aren't legal enough to get a mod plate in the eyes of the government though lol.

<3 bobber and cafe racers.

 

keen to see where you take it.

 

I can't let myself get a bike licence, I just have no self control when it comes to doing silly things sometimes....

Over the next few days I'm going to attempt to fab a springer seat.

As i think the ebay ones will be to big for my frame.

 

This is in proportion and still big enough to fo the job.

 

Going to sort out the rear fender taillight and number plate mounts after the seat.

 

On other notes went for a ride down to jimboomba and around mt tamborine, great fun
