The Tarantulas is a custom bike studio in NE Portland, they are a group of friends that specialize in building Cafe Motorcycles.

Today we feature another of their creations, a 1976 Honda CB750F SS, named "The Natural" , the bike was striped of all the useless crap, the result is a bike that is "Natural”. Brushed metal, gum rubber and leather looking vinyl were used.
