V-Twin cruiser turned into a sleek caf? racer. There are other Virago-to-Cafe conversions out there but I haven't seen another one that stepped up in engine size. Zero rust. Never down. Clear title in hand. No leaks. Always garaged. This is a very well done example of a Cruiser-to-Caf? conversion. She's not show quality. she's ride-all-the-time quality. First and foremost. the bike is 100% functional. reliable. and most of all safe. This is the frame (literally the backbone) of an XV700 with the larger 750 engine swapped in. It's a direct fit. No frame cutting. Instead. a $600 Hageman subframe kit has been installed. Overpriced. yes. but it allowed me to avoid cutting and welding. This bike has more power than any other 750 Iíve ridden. Itís also a very comfortable caf? conversion. All too often. caf? conversions leave the rider in uncomfortable riding positions. The stock wiring has been neatly tucked away behind the headlight in case the future owner wishes to add electronics. The tail end of the wiring harness has been re-routed out of view. along with the relocation of the rear suspension adjustment knob. Even in the cold. it starts reliably. Yes. Viragos sound a little unpleasant while starting but thatís their qwerk. Itís normal. I did all the restoration and conversion. TBC Hot Rods and Bikes of Fayetteville. NC did all the suspension. brakes. and engine tuning. If you visit their webpage youíll see they only put out the highest quality work. Just to reiterate. this is an XV700 frame (which is what the title says) coupled with an VX750 engine. So. the numbers from the frame and engine are not the same. The VIN on the engine is 4X7220528. I know I'm being redundant but it's a detail worth saying twice.
