    This is not as old as some of these , but it’s near 30 years old . The nice thing is
    it has less than 2000 actual miles on it . It runs beautifully and it’s as tight as a drum .
    It’s like driving a brand new bike , I think it’s a keeper ? :D

    Is that a '82 model? I had a 650 that looked very similar.

    Here's my old girl. She's a 1985 Yamaha Virago 700.

    My father in law bought her new.

    [​IMG]

    She found herself in the posession of my brother in law, a confirmed HD guy that disrespected her.

    Once he'd had his way with her and she was all used up, he gave her to me.

    My first bike ever at age 53 and I remembered when grandpa first brought her home. I gave her the care she deserved and even upgraded her suspension with WORKS dual rate StreetTrackers for the rear and RaceTech springs and emulators for the forks.

    [​IMG]

    I nursed her to good health, gave her new old chrome, fixed what needed it, replaced the seat with a leather Mustang and gave her a SpitFire screen.

    Rode her for three and a half glorious years, learned on her, took fantastic day trips, made good friends.

    Unfortunately my mom lets me use her garage to park ONE bike, so when I got my new ride, I had to sell her.

    A nice guy in his 60's that was learning to ride, MSF course etc, found her on my BARF ad and came bearing cash.

    I believe he will respect her. He seemed to be that kind of guy. Godspeed.
