Erick Runyon of Choppershotz is one of the hardest-working photographers on the custom motorcycle scene, so he gets to see a lot of bikes. Erick’s now built a bike of his own: ‘Buzz Saw,’ a 1982 Yamaha Virago XV750. “I picked up ideas and inspiration from all the bikes I’ve shot,” he says. “There’s no rhyme or reason behind the design of the bike—I just did what appeals to me.”
Hah! Another bike with fork gaiters. I'm sure it is a trend... Really like the look of the Yamaha TR1 motor, and this is a nicely referential attempt at framing it. But why no mudguards...? Presumably designer doesn't intend anyone to actually ride it. Pity. Looks like it could be fun.
The ugly duckling becomes a swan: check out this amazing Yamaha Virago custom from Doc’s Chops.
