New Virago variations maintain coming. This one arrives from Kila Adame, who contacted me through Fb few days in the past. He’s a restaurant racer fan and constructed this machine impressed by

The Drogon is a restaurant racer-inspired construct. Clearly… It utilises one of the crucial generally used gas tanks –  Benelli Mojave unit. But, it appears overloaded with leather-based equipment. This undeniably is fashion over perform.

The leather-based is throughout the bike. Kila wrote about it:

I like placing leathers, I made it to some extent to place it throughout my Virago. From tank armor, to the seat, grip, I made it appear like it compliments the fashion, Due to excellent craftmanship of Sir Chris and Valor of Iron & Conceal Customs that made the leather-based design potential. And including to that steampunk look, I put a gas gauge alongside the brand to make it old skool.

Lastly, I wish to thank Sir Hermo who helped me quite a bit to place new elements with my Virago and to everybody who believed in me.

I don’t get the leather-based overload. However I can admire the craftsmanship, the tinting and the construction of the fabric. A fats entrance tire (not a restaurant racer characteristic, nevertheless it works with the natural look of the bike) is placed on a Triumph rim.

Kila Adame claims that the brand is much like the one which “The Witcher” wears. It could be a pleasant contact for this e-book collection that originated in my nation. However I do assume that it resembles the “Stark” household image from R.R. Martin’s collection greater than it does the Andrew Sapkowski’s important character.

Clearly, You possibly can see the upside-down entrance forks. The rear shock was refurbished. The exhaust system was made out of scratch. It is rather uncovered… It simply needed to be made like this 🙂 For a V-twin, the exhaust is the jewelry…
