We’ve seen this bike back then and we were able to witnessed its custom transformation from a stock bike to one of the most appealing Cafe 400 around the metro.
Gian Lasam is an avid rider whose passion and print business intertwines with his daily work routines. Lasam decided to buy a Motorstar Cafe 400 couple of months ago due to work loads and the wasted time that he experience when his on four wheels.
The first time I saw the bike was when Gian asked me to help him make a wakeboard rack for his ride. I invited him to the shop and I was amazed when I saw his Cafe 400, barely all stock at that time. “So what’s your plan for this bike?,” I remember asking that question to Gian. “Not much,” he replied. After few months, I saw his bike displayed during the 3rd Moto Builds Pilipinas with the wakeboard rack attached to his bike.
The Motorstar Cafe 400 is a standout day to day bike. With Gian’s backyard garage build design, knowing that some people don’t want this bike because it’s made in China, it gave the Cafe 400 a reputable and suitable big bike for the masses. Overall this bike can take you for a short ride in the twisties and enjoy its well balanced engine without the additional heat on your groin. Engine displacement is 400cc displacement. Yup and it’s highway legal.
