Blighty calling in on status.....Albert typing........
Now all you Oilyracer fans know our next task thanks to the indepth description in Koens previous blog I will unveil our machine.
A Virago vx535. I can hardly call it stunning but there is potential.....maybe.
Bought on the dreaded ebay for a couple of hundred english smackers and collected under the cover of darkness from a coal shed in Oldham (nr the great metropolis of Manchester) our virago is lucky to be alive. (or it will be after intensive surgery)
As yet Team Blighty haven't checked what we have got for our hard earned cash, so within the next couple of days we will have a rummage and report our findings.
The task ? - to correct the faults built into the Virago by the Japs at Yamaha H.Q. and make it socially acceptable to all Eurolanders. In fact we are extending our knowledge and skills worldwide for all to take advantage of, and best of all it's free advice so get a Virago and join in. For over 20 years Virago owners have tried in vain to civilianise this unique machine......This will be the definitive guide.
(Uncle Alberts Lesson No1 - Stop sticking bits of 'Ride like the wind' bling crap all over it's lovely curvacious body, a Virago doesn't deserve to be humiliated that much !)
As always with any Oilyracer project this has to be completed at minimum cost, work done in-house if possible and lastly it's gotta run !
So hold on to ya crash helmet this could be a rough ride.....
Thought for today.
