It's lonely out there, MZ Skorpion 660

Just wondering how many other owners of MZ Skorpions are out there. I seem to be the only around here in Atlanta. I think it would be nice to have a national rally and the both of us could go out for a drink or something. If there might be 3 of them out there we could start a movement. Stand up and be counted fellow Skorpions.!

It's a non-existent vapor bike until you post up some pics of your trusty steed!

I'd like to see one of those things.

I bought a '96 Sport on E-bay that had been wrecked and had a salvage title. It had around 10,000 miles when I got it.Since the fairing and headlight were busted ,I went with a round light from a SV 650. I made the ears from aluminum. I also made a set of risers and mounted some SuperBike bars.
It made a fun bike, though the seat was sparce , I did a 400+ mile day on it with no problems.



I rode it about 10,000 miles and sold it for what I had in it.




Then a few years after selling the Yellow bike ,I saw this repainted '95 at Vintage days and ended up with it for $1000. It runs but needs some love, one day.

You think you're lonely...

Skorpions are almost as common as Yamaha XS650s. Us Silver Star Classic owners are truly lonely...
