Looks like an over-priced piece of crap to me. Creased tank, stupid looking tail section and from all appearances, sketchy craftsmanship all for only $4000?! C'mon.....

always had a hard on for one of these don't ask me why. one popped up a couple of weeks ago in michigan about 20 miles from my son's house.
4,000 miles, from the sellers description, is 100% running, riding, cosmetically beautiful. went back and forth on price, agreed on $1500.00. picking it up in two weeks.

Somebody should buy this to keep it from being parted out. It appears stock but for the pipes and possibly lower-than-stock bars. I have an '82.

Cool. Ride it a while, you'll like it. Mine wasn't perfect, the clearcoat was "spider webbing" and I easily sold it for $ 2000.

I raced an 81 in the BOT at Grattan raceway in Mi. and Road America in Wi. in 81. I ran 3rd on the track at R.A. and got beat by 2 Ducatis, that were running the race kit pipes and carbs. It was a good race till the 3rd turn at R.A. then the Ducks just motored away. I protested and was awarded the win but it was a hollow win,as I did not learn of the decision till later in the week, but I did beat all the other stockers that day.

I remember riding a brand new 750 Virago back in '83. At the time it was all wrong for me, the whole cruiser thing didn't click with me. I rode an old Sporty at the time (with a CB836/4 for the hot stuff), but even the Sporty had flat bars on it, this Virago thingy had bars that turned me into a windsock! WTF! Nice smooth motor though.

I've often thought in the last few years though (some 30-odd later), an XV1000 or XV1100 would make a great project for a REAL hotrod, I know the engines are massively over-engineered. By real I mean some serious grunt, take off a heap of weight, then take it to the drags and put the fear of God into the HD twin-cam boys with a Jappa.

I don't rekn I'd be very popular, those HD boys are pretty serious about what constitutes a "proper" V-twin........

Here's mine for sale

'82 Yamaha XV920RJ project - SOLD: THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST!!!


Date: 2012-02-19, 4:21PM EST

Reply to: your anonymous craigslist address will appear here

Fully enclosed chain-drive Euro standard version, NOT a Virago cruiser

It's a project. You'll need a pickup or a trailer to get it home. It has lived outside most of the time I've owned it so it is weathered but basically sound. I began taking it apart for cleaning and general refurb and found a good deal on another bike I have always wanted and bought it. Room and time for only one so the 920 goes. I'm piecing it back together so buy it soon and save me the trouble or wait and take your chances.

Third owner, mine since '89. Silver/black '82, which is the second and the final year imported to the U.S. 60,xxx miles. Fully enclosed chain drive. Progressive fork springs and rear spring. Bridgestone S11 tires that have low miles but a few parked years. Krauser hard bags and mounts. Recent starter and battery.

At the very least it will need an exhaust and a couple of carb rebuild kits, in addition to the obvious reassembly. The original exhaust is included but it rusted out years ago, and the replacement MAC 2-into-1 is rusted through also.

It also comes with a lot of stuff that some might consider to be gold and others junk:

Factory shop manual and Haynes manual, owner's manual, original tool kit and original combo chain lock.
Period issues of Cycle Guide and Motorcyclist magazines featuring road tests and upgrade articles.
Spare 920 chain-drive R engine with 6,xxx miles
Spare 920 shaft-drive Virago engine with 12,xxx miles (the guy said)
Spare seat
National Cycle Plexifairing III
Case savers
Suzuki GS1150ES fairing to fit the 8" round headlight on this bike
A couple of boxes of parts, etc.

$500.00 for everything. Nothing sold separately; all or nothing. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. Too much stuff (and too much hassle) to ship.
Thanks for reading. Photos below show it: 1) as it looked after being parked a while and 2) in its current state.

This is a DDR Chaintainer. They were made for 750 Hondas and Kawasaki 900s back in the day.
This one is on Craigslist in N. Carolina.

Not as well made as the XV920 one but the same idea.
