I've had this bike for a couple years now and today I sold the Blue Bayou bike. It is on its way to its new home in Massachusetts where it will prowl the roads in and around the Boston area.

Today was a beautiful sunny day and I took The Blue bayou out for a little spin around the neighborhood after some minor carb adjustments. It's running like a top now.

In this video I give a bit of an overview of this bike.

After about a months worth of work on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 hybrid bike build I am happy to say the bike is done. The initial test ride was short but provided all the necessary information I need to determine it's it's good to go or not and it is certainly good to go.

The wiring gremlins were defeated and the bike is now nearly completed. There's just a couple very minor things and this puppy is ready for the fork...'cause she's done!

Today I was able to complete nearly all of the wiring but one of the switches was damaged and a new one has to be ordered.

Today was a very productive day on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 hybrid build. The wiring for the rear of the bike is completed. The wiring in the front is next on the list/

Another fine sunny day spent working on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 hybrid bike build. Today there was a bit of an accomplishment with the paint being applied to the body work.

A hot 4th of July spent getting more done on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 bike build.

A nice sunny afternoon and a cool evening spent working on the MZ Scorpion - XS650 hybrid bike build.

The weather has been extremely hot in this area so I have transitioned over to working at night on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 hybrid project after things have cooled down a bit. Today I tackled some of the painting chores for this build.

Another fun day of working on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 bike build

I finished up all of the fabrication work so, it's time to dismantle the bike and get it ready for a complete cleaning and re-build.

I did some additional work this evening after it cooled off a bit and test fitted an exhaust set-up from a Ducati Monster with XS650 head-pipes. I like the way it sits on the bike and this set-up will lend itself well to the cafe-racer appeal of the bike. I do believe I will be using this exhaust set-up. I tested it on another XS650 I have and it has a nice throaty growl.

Work continues on the MZ Scorpion-XS650 hybrid bike build
