Tracker builds are perfect for our daily rides. It’s comfortable to ride with an upright body position, wide handlebars, and all-terrain tires. Trackers are a sure hit in the Philippine custom bike small displacement scene.
We’ve been following Ape Customs’ for awhile. We have featured some of their builds, reposted it on Instagram and people went crazy when we posted the before and after look of the bikes that they have built.

Ape Customs’ latest bike build is a sure head turner. The base bike is the ever popular Yamaha SZ 150. This 150 cc commuter bike was launched during the Moto Builds Pilipinas 2017. It was dubbed as the perfect base bike for custom made rides. It was also the base bike of the bike-build off during Moto Builds.
About the Build
“Our recent build in our garage is the Yamaha SZ150 and it was a great base bike. The concept of this bike was just based on my imagination because I bought the tank first and then we started conceptualizing the look,” says Andrew Andrada of Ape Customs.
“The brand new gas tank was a Honda Benly that I bought from Infinity Motozone. We bought this bike here in Roxas City from a friend who needs to upgrade his daily bike and then a client from Zamboanga City sent us a message to find him a base bike to be built a Tracker, his name is Jayr Evangelista Salomon, he is a seafarer.”
“He was still at work abroad when we started building the bike and I suggested the concept of his bike and here it is the finished custom bike for him.”
This bike is a product of, creativity, hard work and dedication. It’s the icing on top of the cake for Mr. Jayr Evangelista. For sure after his tour on board a ship, he will definitely enjoy his one of kind tracker from Ape Customs.
