drop it like its hot. use the money for cooler shit.
i thought about doing one of those virago 250 v-twins at one point, guy at my apartment complex had one that probably hadn't moved in like 5 years. I even went out there and looked at and figured out what i would have to cut to make it cool.
the problem with all those bikes is the whole 'backbone' area is one big stamping kinda behind the battery boxes, its super ugly if you start stripping it down, and it has that crazy dip to it so you cant do anything to make it look better. about all you can do is fill that whole thing in with a big fat seat which also looks doofy.
i dunno if you figure it out let me know but i decided it was way too much time and money to throw at a really stupid project.
