Portland based shop The Tarantula specializing in bike restorations and custom builds, transformed this beautiful bike called “The Natural”. Starting from an abandoned 1976 CB750F SS they planned to build a ride with a “Natural” look – brushed metal, gum rubber and leather looking vinyl.
Originally the back was to be black starting at the downtube on, but James did such an amazing job on the cowel it would be crazy to cover it up. There are still some fabrication needs, some Tarozzi rearsets to mount up and then it will be stripped all the way down and all powder coated.
Other custom details such as clip-ons, rear cowel w/oil tank + battery box, headlight ears, levers and hard lines were done by James Crowe @ Crowe Customs – Seat upholstery done by Ginger @ New Church
