Another guess the bike thread

A buddy of mine sent me these pics from the Midnight Ride up in Chicago. It looks like a Japanese v-twin, especially considering the shaft drive. I think it looks like an old Honda, but we can't remember any that were air cooled. It doesn't look like a Yamaha to me but they are more likely to be air cooled with a shaft drive.

Let me know what you think...

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

That thing is way to fugly to be a production bike. I'm guessing it's a backyard custom of some sort.

I reckon the engine is a Yamaha Virago XV750.

Even standard it was a heap of ****, and that 'custom' is an even ****tier piece of ****.

Not only that, but I think the frame may be as well...
