Soulship Bobbers’ Yamaha Virago

Soulship Bobbers in Greece built this Yamaha Virago XV535 café racer, painted in warm “root beer brown” with gold leaf accents. The Virago has a one-off chromoly swingarm with a Yamaha R1 monoshock suspension, and it has the front end from an ’08 Suzuki GSX-R with four-piston front brakes from a Triumph, with custom triple trees that have an analog speedometer sunk into the top yoke. Soulship Bobbers created a scratch-built subframe, then shortened the fuel tank and made a steel café-style rear cowl to match. The bike has a stainless steel, two-to-one exhaust, with a front pipe that follows the lines of the engine case and meets the rear pipe just under the polished steel battery box.
