LD West Virago Café ptII
[slider] [/slider]

We’ve been taking time and stripping the Virago of all the unnecessary parts we won’t be using for this Café racer build. At 1060 LBS, this bike carries almost twice as much weight as the average bike today! There’s a lot of horses under the seat but is unfortunately cursed with heavy, clunky technology from the 80’s. It’s not all that fast but we’re hoping that shedding some weight will help it move along much better and make it a bit more aerodynamic by removing all the bits and pieces like the back seat rest, massive handle bars and laptop sized dash board that cause some serious wind drag!

At this point in the build, we haven’t really experienced anything more than some very stubborn, very rusted nuts and bolts. We are however slowly uncovering the secrets this bike has been harboring for the last decade or more. A hacked up wiring harness, a leaky crank case, a ton of missing nuts and bolts, poor of attempts to make extra power by modifying factory parts and signs of previous drops are all hidden gems we’re uncovering! With a bike that’s over 30 years old with an owners list longer than a car rental from Hertz, what can you expect?

Here’s how the bike currently stands!

For the next phase of the build, we will continue to strip everything off, give the entire bike a really good cleaning, prep various parts and the engine block for paint and drain the fluids.

  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
