1982 Yamaha vision
« on: June 25, 2011, 08:31:05 am »
Here is my bike:




1982 Yamaha Vision XZ55
shaft drive liquid cooled 8 valve 70 degree 550 DOHC V-twin
The vision was only made for 2 years due to poor salse, yet we have 4 fully restored ones in our carport xD They're fun, torquey little bikes, they're pretty much an ancient SV650 :)
In these pictures if have 1983 hadlebar risers instaled (Which I LOVE) they're lower than the stock ones, so it feels sportier, I'll also be putting a small fairing on soo, a (period)black, dual single sided MAC exhaust, smaller turn signals ECT. :)
1982 Yamaha vision Zx550.
