Moto Adonis of the Netherlands is one of our favorite builders. Their R65 scrambler was one of our very favorite bikes of 2015, and their R80/7 cafe racer is pure class. Now Daan and crew are back with another killer build. This time it’s a Yamaha TR1, known in the States as the XV920R (Virago). It doesn’t hurt that this bike is coupled with a beautiful VW Doka and cute pup. We’ll let Daan give you the full story…
Yamaha TR1 Virago Scrambler: In the Builder’s Words
We have finished a new project. It’s a very special Yamaha TR1.
This Yamaha TR1 is a hard bike to find in the Netherlands, but we have managed to find one and give that bike a bad ass scrambler style look! This bike is heading for the streets of Amsterdam. We have changed a lot on this bike! Let’s start from front to back:
Of course the bike was taken apart and all the useless parts were tossed away and made space for new some new gear.
At the front we have placed a KTM 690 SM front spoke rim and after we put on the 120/70 Pirelli MT60 Corsa tyre we have mounted the rim in a Suzuki GSXR front fork. The disk-brake came from ktm as well but the double caliber claw is from GSXR. The headlight is a Triumph scrambler 7 inch headlight with a mudguard and with a new handlebar, speedo and Biltwell grips this front was ready.
The gas tank is an adjusted cb750 tank and of course it got a new paintjob. The rearframe and seat are handmade with a new rearlight, batterybox and you will find small blinkers if you follow the line down to the mainframe. The rearwheel and brake are KTM 690SM aswell fitted with a fat 160/60 Pirelli MT60RS tyre.
The exhaust is handmade from Stainless steel and the engine got a new paint job, partly wrinkle paint, partly gloss black and the covers where polished.
