Neck Tat by Steel Bent Customs

[nggallery id=7]Kaizen is the Japanese philosophy of incremental and continuous improvement through ingenuity and simple solutions. Japanese motorcycles have long demonstrated that philosophy, and now with Neck Tat, the crew at Steel Bent Customs in Tampa, Florida carries on the tradition.

After obtaining the donor bike (1980 Honda CB750) from a guy with a sweet neck tattoo, (inspiring the bike’s name) the guys went to work hiding the electronics under the seat and mounting the battery to the swing arm behind the engine. “All of our builds feature the open center design. We clean out the clutter and let their minimalism shine," explains owner Michael Mundy.

The custom exhaust was taken off of a parts bike and polished up. The rear frame was then custom built and the bike was given an electric ignition only. The custom rear loop and seat were obtained from Dime City Cycles, an endless source of knowledge & craftsmanship.

Regarding their building approach he says, “We listen to the bike and we follow it’s lead to it’s true potential.”

True potential achieved here. Start dreaming of your own, she was on eBay...
