That is a really good idea. You got a lead on how to get in touch with him? all i can find is the publications or reviews of his show. I would DIE to work for him and on those cars. a good garage needs a prototype machinist....

he probably gets tons of fan mail, the trick is to word it so his "people" actually show it to him.

Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

You could try social media. Here's his page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jaylenosgarage/

And here's the Twitter feed for the show: https://twitter.com/LenosGarage

Finally, there's a few more social media links on the NBC page for the show: http://www.nbc.com/jay-lenos-garage

You could post a series of pics of the making of on instagram and tag his show, that might get his attention, and also post something on his FB page.

thank you sir! i would have to agree with you. Once bills are hanging on your hobby it can rob some of the fun out of it. but it certainly isnt something that i am ruling out.







Right now i am finalizing the custom title for it so it will be a 2014 model. but once that is finalized it will be going up for sale. I would like to get $8k for it. too high?







also... thought yall might like this


I'll give you $3000 and the knowledge that it's going to s good home!!!

If anyone is considering a similar build, I have a pair of XV920Rs one is complete, the other nearly complete

make an offer

some good ideas here and on Manfred's TR1 page

You could google his garage, find the name of his resident motorcycle enthusiast,
then send him "before and after" shots of past projects.

Then a link to this thread, and he'll be all "Jay, you gotta see this!"

Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

okay guys... here we go!

the bike is done, inspected and fully legal, so the obvious next thing to do would be to sell it right? Well, thats what i actuality have to do. so if you know anyone who wants it, spread the word, i am going to be putting it on on ebay to see if i get any interest. not really sure how to drum up interest too much but i gotta sell it.

so on to the gratuitous pictures... just for yall










and a little video. its about 25 degrees when the picture was taken and the bike wasnt warm hence the sluggishness

Let me be among the first, but most certainly not the last, to say JOB WELL DONE! You have really given all of us something to aspire to, skills-wise, really outstanding work. And thanks for going to all the trouble of keeping us posted, very entertaining!

Guess you know already that: you da man!

Ditto!

Let us know all the specs, and what you are asking for it, and I'll post it here in SoCal and on FB!
