Tattoo Projects is a Charlotte-based advertising agency with a creative director and co-founder who turned his passion for motorcycles into a shop. If one look at their “Vampire Slayer” cafe racer wasn’t indication enough, their motorcycles leave as indelible an impression as their advertising work. Starting with a Suzuki GN400 found on Craiglist, an idea and an image of the famous Deus Ex Machina “Grievous Angel” in mind, the label set about creating a bike that’s simple and elegant. If you’ve ever built a bike, you know that’s easier said than done. Tattoo stripped the bike, chopped the tail, installed LED lighting, cut down the suspension, made a new seat pan and even lopped a good 3″ off a generic fuel tank for that iconic low profile look. A matte black paint scheme completes the look and really sells the “Vampire Slayer” name.
