Nowadays, old school chopper Yamaha Virago XV750 is a popular contributor to the custom-built bikes. Greg Hageman is a leading expert on models Yamaha Virago and now proposes to look at his next project based on Yamaha Virago XV750. This model has rear suspension with two shock absorbers, while the earlier models manned monoshock. Greg originally even wanted to alter the geometry of the rear suspension, but then changed his mind and installs a pair of Öhlins. “I liked the angles and thought I could make it perform well. All the previous first-gen Viragos I’ve built had mono-shocks, but I wanted to keep this one different and keep some original design.”
