Because a K1200 isn't hot enough as is:

I've seen that one before, but I am surprised to find more documentation in that like actually saying it IS a VIRAGO 750, and not a 920 'euro' version, which would have lent itself to the cafe treatment a bit more easily.

They did import them to the US for 2 years, I believe.. but they didn't sell much. Imagine that. Search Yamaha TR1 for the european version.. I am unsure, but I think the US version was an xv920.. maybe called a Virago as well, but I don't think. I'm thinking it was a model derivative. Like a kz LTD.

No, there was a version that looked just like the first pic I posted, although I don't believe it was the "TR1". It had an enclosed chain drive. I stumbled upon some forum where two guys were musing over each having owned one. That's the only reason I know this much.

No, the Vision was the XV550, and was more of a sport-tourer/standard than a cruiser. Futuristic fairing (optional), pretty decent bike. My neighbor had one, wanted to sell it to me but I gave the deal to a buddy of mine who promptly sold it to someone else. I'll never broker a bike again.

A "Rudge-Whitworth" -- not exactly what I'd want to ride on the street, but apparently they're building it as a salt racer.

I just think it's damn pretty. :)

BIKE EXIF wrote: This remarkably elegant vintage motorcycle is actually a bit of a mongrel: it’s a Rudge ‘bitsa’ built by Jean-Claude Barrois, who also restored the Honda CB450 and Terrot racer we’ve featured before. This bike has had a chequered life, starting out as a 1928 Soyer—a French brand that produced motorcycles between 1920 and 1935. Like many French makes of the time, Soyer used a variety of engines for their motorcycles, including 
JAP, Sturmey Archer and Chaise. This particular Soyer 07S had a JAP engine but the frame was wrecked, so Barrois built his own frame—and eventually replaced the JAP motor with the 500cc Rudge unit you see here....
