Not making fun of anyone's bike.  There is something interesting about this build.

Could be a good starting point for someone.  Price is too high, but think in the right hands, it could turn out pretty good.

I rather like the concept. 

I used to have a Voyager XII and often thought that engine could have been in the C10 - 1200cc, hydraulic lifters, butter smooth and better fuel economy.

I'll bet it weighs less than a C10 now as the weight of the XII oem luggage and fairing with radio / (sometimes CB) / amplifier / speakers were significant.

Wish there were more pics from different angles - looks like a C10 tail and a ZX11 fairing?

it is kind of interesting I agree... keeping an old machine and tweaking it to meet the needs...  really doesn't look "bad".. when painted to match tank, it should be viable..
and the V-gr is a solid touring platform for certain...

I kinda like it...  :motonoises: :motonoises: :motonoises:

and it doesn't have "cat-o-9-tails" grip-whips dangling...   :)) :)) :)) :))

winner... :great:
