There are a lot of custom motorcycles builders out there that tack on all the bells and whistles to their builds. And some of those over-engineered vehicles are pretty great. But it takes a real master builder to know when stripping something down to its basest parts is the right way to go. And that’s the case with Tattoo Moto’s Suzuki GN400 – called the ‘Vampire Slayer.’
Inspired by Deus Ex Machina’s famous ‘Grievous Angel’ cafe racer, this bike exemplifies moto-minimalism without sacrificing ride-ability or style. It features a hacked-off rear end with a new LED taillight, chopped front forks, powder coated star shaped mag wheels, a gorgeous custom low-profile tank and a slick seat to match. Even the cockpit has been simplified with clip-on bars and a mobile device mount to monitor speed with the help of an app. All done up in matte black, this simplified menace is ready for the hunt.
