The Northside Scrambler

This 1980 XS 650 was built at my shop Northside Welding & Machine where we do everything from full builds to handmade fabricated parts, machining and more.



I wanted a shop bike I could bomb around on and not worry about getting dirty. The bike was stripped down to the frame with all new powder coat and paint, fresh top end, wheel & neck bearings, dual sport tires, custom tail section, and more.


Nothing left untouched.


Since completing the build it has won Best Bobber at the Springfield MA. show and was also featured in the Waterbury Republican paper in CT in an article about the bike and my shop.
