in progress virago trike
(newton abbot, devon, UK)
1981 Yamaha virago. Imported from Canada, i believe 920 cc. Its an ongoing project i do in my spare time ,I bought it off a friend who is no longer with us, and i promised him i would covert it and use it on the road. So im trying to keep,my promise.
Its taken 2 years so far with more than a few headaches. :) Fabricated by me and welded together by my brother. The rear end is hard tailed but i bolted it to the original swing arm /shock fixings.
I'm in the process of shortening the rear axle (robin rialto axle mk2), to bring the diff in line with the prop on the bike (I figured the less severe the angle it sits at the less wear on the prop uj's).
I've also cut off the old drum bakes mounting plates, And got some Discs for braking, With calipers with handbrake fitments on both sides.
Its a real challenge but ...If i can do it from a shed in my back garden, I guess anybody can. lol
If i can help anyone out there with a few ideas, e mail me, Problems shared and all that :)
