San Juan, La Union’s Favorite Son and His Custom Bike

 

It has been going out online, and we were able to get up close with this Custom CB400 built by Kratos Custom Cycles.

At a glance, it is neat and compact. The basic structures, composed mainly for a single seater bike and an a rigid rack well placed to balance the board on the main bike frame.

Rear frame was cut and bolted on a single seat springed to a single shock. Rear lights placed underneath, while the rack was carefully mounted on proportion with the frame for proper ride balance. Also provided with limited stock rims form the CB400N, that we don’t see quite often.

“..tignan mo, ang gaang nyan. Ginawa kong ganyan para kaya nyang umandar kahit sa sand..” Todee shared us.

More than the frame mod, the classic custom bullet-type pipe gives character, exhaust reverted on the left panel with thermal wraps.

We also had our chance to speak with Todee Teodoro (Kratos Custom Cycles) on that same day. He talks about how takes pride in every bike he does, treating each bike like an artwork in progress.

“..before I accept any work, I screen each projects first. It’s easier to work on a bike in good running condition, than to restore an old bike..”

“..minsan talaga pag wala ako sa mood, tinititigan ko lang yung motor magdamag hanggang ma-feel ko na maganda yung outcome, saka rin kapag pumapasok yung ideas..” Todee shares us.

This here still is one of the good custom bikes built out there. We are envious, especially when you have the best pure bike builder to work on your dream bike.
