The Natural – A Custom Cafe Racer From The Tarantulas

Created by custom bike studio The Tarantulas out of Portland, “The Natural” is a cafe racer motorcycle featuring a stalwart brushed metal look based off a 1976 Honda CB750F SS.

From their site:

“Started as an abandoned bike, was taken to the garage and we immediately started pulling all the useless crap off it. The plan was to create a bike that was “Natural” – brushed metal, gum rubber and leather looking vinyl was used.”

The bike features custom clip-ons, rear cowel with oil tank and battery box, headlight ears, levers and hard lines done by James Crowe at Crowe Customs. Seat upholstery done by Ginger at New Church.

    Sweet looking bike. American ingenuity at work. It says “Rugged Individualist.”
