Doc’s Chops Yamaha XV750 Cafe Racer

The pictured bike was built for Season Two of Discovery Channel’s “Cafe Racer” TV show, and it is what Mr.
Greg Hageman of Doc’s Chops made out of a Yamaha Virago XV750 from the 80s.
Hageman built a new subframe, lowered the fork by two inches (about 5 cm) and added a Tarozzi fork brace as well as a couple of Tarozzi rearsets and clip-ons to improve the riding position.

On the rear there is an adjustable air-assisted monoshock, while a simple Acewell unit replaces Virago’s standard instrumentation.
The original engine has not been touched, although its Hitachi carburettors got now a new jet and new K&N filters.
The model also uses a Mac Performance exhaust system, and Bridgestone tyres.
