Description Yamaha 1982 XV750 Cafe Racer
1982 XV750 Cafe Racer. This build is 98% complete - see below for a better description. Engine runs smoothly with the infamous 'box-o-rocks' starter.The inspiration for this build came from Greg Hagemans - Docs Chops.
The subframe on this bike was actually build by Greg in the US and shipped over to me.
Non standard items include:
Genuine Benelli Mojave 360 tank from US (not the rip off cheap version from india)
Docs Chops rear subframe from US
Acewell 2853 Tacho, speedo and clock.
18" XJ650 Rear Wheel and hub.

50mm lowering of forks.
100% complete rewire with easy to follow bare bones wiring diagram.
Paint was done by me in the garage. Not rubbish looking but definitely not professional looking.
Seat cowl was formed by me. Again not rubbish but could have been done better.
Headlight from the UK.
Tail/brake light and blinkers from Ebay Things you need to do; Exhaust system - rear cyclinder is short header pipe only. Currently too loud for the road.
Hook up the rear brake sensor to the brake lever. Brakes and brake light work, the solenoid just needs a connecting wire to the brake lever.
Front forks have new oil but might need some air depending on your ride preference.
Front brake need a complete service. They are very spongy.
Forks boot covers are rotten and need replacing.
Clean paint overspray off most areas The bike as it stands is a completed working mockup and has sat like this for 18 months.
My original idea was to get it to this point then completely pull it down again and have everything professionally painted.
Things for me have changed and regrettably I don't have time to complete it.
The reserve price is set at $6,500.00
