Few may have heard of the Tarantulas, a motorcycle custom garage based in the Portland, Oregon that specializes in bike restorations and custom builds. But with their skill and talent in building some pretty slick machines, due props have to be given out.
One of their creations that sparked some interest is called the Natural, a restored and modified 1976 Honda CB750F SS that drives home the classic touches mixed in with modern modifications.
According to the Tarantulas, the bike took a couple of years to make and started off as an abandoned bike that was eventually turned into a classic piece of steel and muscle. To give the bike the look of a neo-retro cruiser, the Tarantulas decided to give it a brushed metal treatment complemented by leather-looking vinyl, gum rubber, and Tarozzi rear seats that will be stripped down and powder-coated.
Other design details about the Natural include custom clip-ons, a new rear cowel with an oil tank and battery box, new headlight ears, levers and hard lines, all of which were built by James Crowe and his boys over at Crowe Customs.
Honda’s VT1300 line is fixing to get three new variations that are sure to drum up a significant level of interest from riders everywhere. For this particular page, the focus is on the "muscle bike" of the three, the Honda Stateline.
The Stateline has a unique design and, when mixed with modern technology, offers what Honda has described as “traditional looks meets progressive elements.” The tried-and-tested formula of combining retro looks with modern technology never gets old, and true to form, that’s the Honda Stateline’s calling card.
The deeply valanced fenders arc downward in classic retro style, yet the all-new rolling chassis and overall lines bring a fresh look to the bike. Some design features on the Stateline also pay homage to the bike’s classic styling, particularly the swept-back bars atop raked-out forks and full-size fenders spooning fat front and rear tires. Even the lights set-up was designed to provide elegance to the Stateline’s profile. The front headlamp is the picture of strength while the taillight, combined with a unique rear signlamp, provides stylish looks to the bike’s rear end.
In terms of the bike’s engine set-up, the Stateline is the epitome of cruiser power, thanks to a powerful 1,312 cc liquid-cooled 52 V-twin engine that’s mated to a five-speed transmission, producing insane amounts of power at all ranges. The bike’s PGM-FI system with automatic enrichment circuit makes for an ideal induction set-up. Suffice to say, this cruiser provides perfect acceleration on the street while also boasting of a sturdy chassis and suspension set-up.
At some point, the choice really does become clear. The Honda Stateline is a cruiser that can cater to a wide variety of clients. Whether they’re looking for classic looks, modern technology, or a combination of both, the Stateline has everything you want in a cruiser.

The bike’s pro-street styling is as sleek and aggressive as any that we’ve seen recently.

The back of the Sabre also features a hidden shock that exudes a sleek hard-tail look without giving up rider comfort and handling control.
At the heart of the Sabre is an advanced 1,312 cc V-twin engine that comes with Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI). Combine that with other sophisticated technology, including a Combined Braking System with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and you have a bike that takes cruiser performance to a whole new level.
Despite sharing some of the same DNA as the other new custom 1300s, the Sabre stands head and shoulders above its competitors before its versatility and muscular style is only the beginning of the impressive overall package it has. Whether you’re looking for a bike that comes with outstanding power, comfortable handling, and an aggressive and eye-catching style, it’s best to understand that the package you’re looking for can all be had with the Honda Sabre.
