LET THE PICTURES DO THE REST OF THE TALKING.
the virago is typically known to be shaft driven, but a select few you can get your hands on are chain. This whole bike is based around this feature. it offers much more customization and a unique LOOK.
single sided swingarm
with the extra options the chain drive motor offers, we were able to do some modifying to make a single sided swingarm fit from a ducati. apart from just the swingarm, many other parts had to be custom made to make the bike functional. THIS INCLUDES THE SHOCK MOUNT AND TORSION BAR, REAR SET PEG BRACKETS, DISC BRAKES, GEARING, CUSTOM FRAME FABRICATION, ETC.
TUBULAR SUB FRAME
TO TOP OFF THE REAR END, WE HAD TO GET AWAY FROM A BASIC SUB FRAME AND GET A LITTLE INTRICATE. THE SUB FRAME IS ALSO TIED INTO THE SWINGARM CONVERSION AS IT HOLDS THE SHOCK BRACKET IN PLACE. TO KEEP A CLEAN LOOK WE INCORPORATED THE TAIL LIGHT INTO THE HOOP.
