In the world of custom motorcycles, the Yamaha Virago 750 has become a popular choice for builders looking for a donor bike. Despite many of them being in a state of disrepair, there are still many available on the market. One such machine inspired Jacques Peters of Open Road Customs to create a new motorcycle. However, instead of following the usual path of creating a cafe racer, Peters decided to build a tracker-scrambler with a luxurious design.


Knowing that the project would require more than a simple engine overhaul, Peters sought guidance from Yamaha expert Greg Hageman. With the concept of "dirty" in mind, Peters swapped out the Virago's wheels for ones reminiscent of the old CX500 and fitted them with beefy off-road tires. The bike now has the capability to tackle muddy trails and rough roads with ease.


Peters also made several other modifications to the bike, including fitting new off-road bars, different grips, bar-end low-swung mirrors, custom turn signals, a retro-inspired headlight, and new bodywork. Sideshow Cycles crafted custom sculpted fenders, while Peters designed and built a custom fuel tank to match the bike's "Dirty Mexican" moniker.


The tail section was finished off with a seat covered in a special Mexican material adorned with symbols such as tequila bottles, skulls, and roses. Peters envisioned the bike as a scrambler, so he replaced the Virago's classic exhaust line with custom collectors that tell the scrambler story from afar. While the missing heat shields may not be the coolest feature, it's an easy fix.
