That's it for now.

Needs wires, brake lines and oil plus filters. And the exhaust system isn't on yet but it's ready 98%.

Pretty much done otherwise.

That turned out really good. Bottom of the engine looks pretty damn low though. How much clearance is there?

Cheers, thanks!

It's all clear coated. Ready.

And it is about 3" clearance.

Crankshaft, conrods and plain bearings went.

So I bought another set plus changed the main bearing, oil pump chain, all the bolts and nuts replaced or zinc plated. Bought new clips and spring for the starter.

Fixed it back together, dialed in and started. First try.

Very cool with a lot nice pieces on it. I have built a Virago myself and I commend you on making a generally ugly commuter bike look so good.

Take one ugly turd and polished a helluva ride out of it. I hate Vrago's, have one and owned two others. Yours is awesome.
