Virago Original Motorcycle
Is she a good bargain?

I am buying a Yamaha virago 250cc Route 66 edition; it’s a 1990 with only 7,000 original miles. I am buying it for $1,400 in perfect condition. The guy bought it for his wife, but she does not want to learn to ride it so he is selling it. I am new to motorcycles, but my entire family rides and I want to join them. Does this sound like a good find? I tried to google it, but couldn’t find much information on it.
To Brian: I did see the bike today, I rode it as well. It has been kept in his garage out of the weather and he did say that he rode it quite a bit to keep it up. It started with ease and rode great.

I just restored the same bike three months ago. Bike was sitting in owner’s garage for three years. Cream and baby blue with Route 66 Decal. Fortunately the paint and decal on the tank were intact, was able to save it. Frame and fenders and the rest I have to repaint.
The Engine was in good condition. I changed oil, adjusted valves, changed plugs, cleaned the carbs, cleaned tank and filte. New battery and the bike started after a few tries.
The Virago 250 is the entry level of the Virago models. Most parts are similar to other Viragos except this is chain driven and single carburetor.
Signal lights, headlight, are interchangealbe with the bigger model viragos.This model was in production for over 25 years so many surplus parts are available.
I think $1,400.00 is a good buy.
