Thanks for compliments
Notice it's still a budget bike with almost all parts rebuild again.
Look what I did this morning before it started to rain
And you can see also from this side what I used for the air
Runs perfect
Only need a nice pinball girl sticker on the battery holder or something from MOON or Lucky 13 ......
and some more foam in the seat so it match better on the tank
and of course polish the engine and search for tape for the first exhaust

Peter

I like it.

Yes I like the poverty look...hahahah joking ok...
But lets face it... ANY idiot can hand over heaps of money to look thru his visor at the same road ahead...
shopkeepers know that, and make them shiny to attract just such types... and never give manoey back...
smooth like sewing machines, new this and that, just hand over the money...

your way is the way of the man and machine, just never mind about 'pleasing' the other... sod him..
it's ur life and ur bike... don't even ask what someone thinks, who cares what they think, or what they drink...

XV's are the bike, offset vee twin, momoshock, torque, handling... ride and you will know
all the others are try hards...

Luv the hugger... for me it's mid pegs from the 750 and normal bars, not into racing all that much...
hey well done..

Hey Lucky Boy thanks
I tell you and you did it in your story.
I have and had a lot of bikes
From extremely caferacers to hardtail choppers
British japanese from the 50's 'till 90's
(still got a Triumph T100 with alloy engine from early 50's)
Loved them mostly all, but there was a price for the bikes
Now I have a XV 920 bike you can buy for peanuts at the moment over here in Holland.
If you sell parts that you ripped of , you have it even cheaper
It's amazing what you can build for very low budget
And if the engine is ok you got a very nice bike with a beaytiful sound
I started the bike today 3 times just to go for a ride on the country roads with a lot of bends
Cut down the speed on your engine before a bend and listen to that roar
Go back to you second or 3th gear and open op the gas when leaving the bend
Listen to that roar again
I don't have a rev counter but I think somewhere between 3 and 5000 you have a lovely torque and the bikes sounds just perfect without any trouble
Torque enough
You feel the V2 working and for me that's riding and enjoying it
For me this is a bike that feels good
I'm smiling from ear to ear, also knowing what the price was for all this joy

Peter Very Happy

We're not God..
but by God we're good...

Me and You Bt/boy.... 5 STARS cheers

Like you, I got so many I can't even count that biganumber
hell I got a 4 car garage full . a shed full and they even fill my back patio...

I think I got about 6 XV and bikes with motors of every type..
i used to buy but never sell...
why would you sell ur bike anyway..
you end up with no bike...
and an week later no money more than before anyway,, ???

still pll drink solvents and inhale toxic gasses so anything goes I guess...

Give me the fresh breez and friendly sun, a thumping twin and someone to come home too...
life is to short to fuck up on purpose..

Just putting cams into the vee and upping the Comp, changed the gearing (chain final) and sweetened up a few other items... , better rear shock and re-valved forks..., just to blow dust into the big ol Harley boys sunnies.. hahahaha.. by the time their synapses compute what's happened, I'll be laughing my stupid head off, inside my full face...

Doing a bare bones Xv with basic wiring running thru the hollow frame, a low geared (I only use chainies)
high rev screamer, with twin pipes under the seat, why ?....
because I can, hahahah..
and all the crap about converting to single carb... give me a break, give me twin 40 mm's anyday...
even my Mother can balance then using a set a Vacs... they love cams by the way...

Ooh Man I'm happy
Why?
Well I tell you
I had a very big problem with the crankmotor and the bendix.
I tried it myself and fixed it
It starts like a brand new one
Realy enjoyed it because the bike's worth it
She's my pride and joy
XV V2 for ever cheers

Peter

PS bought another one but than a XV920 with chain drive Very Happy

Bought this one today and don't know really what to do.
Like it in a way it is
Cheap budget and old looking
But than again, this is XV with a chain
This is very good basic for a caferacer
You can use different toothed wheel and spoked wheels
And the reartwheel is 18" instead of Virago 16"
Still has the 920 cc with bottom power
Well I have can of lager and a plate of Italian food and gonna think about it

Now we talking XV TR1, the real deal...
The other will be good for spares...

Firstly get rid of german tank left over parts bin foot peg holders...
replace with nicely shaped mid set from XV shafty

Then change the rear sprocket for say 30 or 32 tooth and really get the benifit of the torque...
Wack on a set of 750 heads, and for god 's sake if not ur own...
A decent couple cams and let the poor thing breath.
spend ur few little pennies,
you be dead soon anyway..

Only then do we start talking about what motorbiking really is... cheers

If possible buy a few more as well..
the only thing nicer than naked woman, is more of the same, same applies... Cool

Streetracker it...
subtle street wise mods..
get rid rid of big Army rear guard... etc..
I see you have new pegs...
i tried like that but it felt 'unstable at start and stop'...
so I went to mid.. perfect for me..

Another... well done..
I like you more now.. :)

They look great together..
One nice and normal,
the other can be a little mental, like it's owner..

hahah, just joking ok pls...
I have the same thing..
Normal... as per perfectly
Chopper.. raked front, real low rear, just beautifull
Mental... compression, cam, mad as all hell..
like it's owner.. hahahah

Life is better when u alive...

Old post I know but want to say something
Bike was outside since november 2010
It was really a bad winter here in Holland Europe
Put the key in yesterday and within 3 seconds it's started
Now I'm gonna look for a 32 sprocket and a 750 head
Thanks Luckyboy for the ideas

Hey Michiel,

I hope you consider my efforts as "not copying someone else"!!! Cool Pure Sixties for me ....in that respect the same I guess, but never saw a TR / XV done in that style.

I've looked some Norvin styled efforts that cut away half the Featherbed frame Evil or Very Mad

The XV/TR engine lends itself very well for Specials as we don't have any of those pesky radiators to worry about hiding away.

BTW - that's one of the University Post Grads sitting on the bike - not me!

Hello Lucky Boy

Sorry it took so long but was very busy with my illness (not important0 the XV and bought an old VW camper van with an 6 cilinder diesel engine.
Here a photo how the VX looks today
Home made forward controls and handle bar in old style,thats what I think

I was thinking about open pipes but than again I love the long ones and the sound is very ok

Ok not really an classic bike or caferacer Very Happy , but want you to see my camper van I use to go to the classic races etc.
(if I don't can't ride my bike)
It's not finished yet but I want you to see the beautiful picture of Marlon Brando on the side
Yes he is for me what Elvis is for RnR, Mike Hailwood for the races and the ACE for being born too late HA
Now a question, are there checkered tapes I can use on the whole length of the van?
It's 5 metres or 16 feet

Long time I was on this topic, but want you to see what you can do with a XV

Not a caferacer this time but a special V2 1000cc
