I can only hope bike don’t having feelings. That poor once proud BMW.
While I'm sure a lot work went into this, IMO the finished product is a real mess. More here:- https://www.pipeburn.com/home/2020/...amaha-xv750-by-beekhof-motorcycle-builds.html
No knobby tires?
Some good quotes...'The original subframe was also hacked off during this same period. ' ' core ethos behind the latest two-wheeled work ' ' but I managed to pull it off,” gleams Boaz.' ' new clip-ons afford the XV a markedly more aggressive riding position which is right in line with the cafe fighter vibe. '
This is one young builder we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for in the future.
If only you could stop him.
I'm probably not the only one that likes this. Besides it was sitting abandoned and deteriorating in the back of the shed. What's wrong with having a bit of fun ?
But , then again I'm a guy that had an idea to ride cross country a few years ago with plans to leave the bike , then fly back to it and continue. I looked around in my shed and said "This will do."
And it did , 3 trips with a combined mileage of 17,500 , including 300 or 400 miles of unpaved roads. Yamaha XV920RH from 1981 .
"Cafe fighter"? Not familiar with this genre, though I have seen some scuffles break out down at the local Starbucks when they announced they had run out of limited edition cups.
All of them have been bought up for use in the "Dumbass" thread.
Relax, they didn't waste a chain-drive version. I'd have been upset, too.
Having owned a Yamaha TR1 in the past I'd hazard a guess that those Yam V twin specials are a massive improvement...
I liked the XV1000 that we got in Oz, sort of euro spec, grease cased chain, I really liked these, we then got a 750 shaft in cruiser style, then the litre bikes went step seat and I was out...
Ditto with our XV920R bikes. We only got them for two years here but there were leftovers at dealers for years after.
I have to say the 1100 Enduro is kinda cool, and better executed then quite a few others. Kept it period and made an effort to make it look factory. I vote not ruined on this one.
Yamaha XT1100, kind of like it.
I have to agree on this one. It doesn’t look like the Freddy Kruger’s nightmare that XV750 by Beekhof is. The 1100 looks like a real, functional motorcycle. Bet it’s a hoot to ride. But then I like to trail-ride my 990.
I think Viragos, by definition, don't belong in any thread that includes "a really good bike" in the title.
My best offer would be somewhere in the region of sweet fuck all!
I disagree. I don't particularly like the cruiser styling, especially of the later twin-shock bikes that became a little garish, but once they got the starter gremlins sorted the bike had a long production run and got many folks out there on two wheels who might not otherwise have ridden. I certainly liked my R model and wish I had another.
Ok, I'm trawling the Bikeshed MCC for sale to get out of this XV shaped hole we are in.
Things are a bit quiet as all the hip guys are mid build at the moment but sticking with the Yamaha theme how about this pro built XS?
The XS was surely a 'good' bike and well up for a good modern day ruining.
Nice CB750, £2250 reserve not met on Fleabay, he's blaming the PO for the tasteful mods....
I think the filter used is called 'Neon polarise my bike less shit'
