YAMAHA XS650 SCRAMBLER | BY LEFT HAND CYCLES

Left Hand Cycles is a custom bike workshop recently founded by Richard and Lex, two motorbike enthusiasts inspired by caferacing and motorcycles from the seventies. Their latest build is this Yamaha XS650 Scrambler named "The Transformer", we love the rough-round-the-edges finish appeal on this. It includes the "Acid King" transformer kit, allowing you to choose between two faces, one as industrial caferacer look(which includes rusty tank, seen on last picture) or as a gentlemens Scrambler. How cool is that?
