Here's a link to the build series videos
This bike is a true one-off custom cafe' racer.
It started life as an MZ Scorpion and has had very subtle modifications done to accept a Yamaha XS650 twin power plant.
The entire bike was completely dismantled and every single part was inspected, and where needed replaced.
The Bilstein 41mm front forks were rebuilt with new seals and fluid.
Then it got media blasted at JB Blasters in Arlington before the luscious paint work was laid down.
Certain custom pieces were fabricated for the bike including the seat and the side panels.
The fuel to the twin Mikuni carbs is fed through dual brass shot-off valves.
The bike handles the road very well and has that classic 650 twin rumble that gets your heart pumping.
It has a clear title and is ready for the road and the twisty canyons and the fully adjustable Bilstein suspension soaks up any and all of the lumps and bumps the roads might throw at you.
It has both kick and electric start and fires right up at the touch of the button or the kick of the lever.
The bike has a clean and clear Washington State title and is ready for the road.
