If you are a fan of Coco Martin and his portrayal of Cardo Dalisay, a hero cop on an evening TV series “Ang Probinsyano,” you better take a closer look at Mr. Coco Martin’s Honda XR 150L turned into a street tracker by one of the top local motorcycle craftsmen in the country, Tokwa Party Garage.
There were a lot of motorcycle chase scenes in the hit TV series. There’s a scene when Cardo took a bomb and drove a motorcycle over a bridge to detonate that bomb. O well, enough of that fan mode thing. We asked Jerish, TPG’s main man how Mr. Martin got in contact with them for a bike project. “May nag personal message sakin close friend ni Coco Martin. Nagtatanong kung magkano yun magpa-build for a project bike dahil nakita nila yun post ko sa IG na yamaha SZ150 yard build. So nagustuhan nila. Kaso nagbago isip nila kung pwede daw ba mag honda XR, sabi ko oo pwede.” (Someone sent us a direct message in one of our social media accounts, a good friend of Coco Martin. He asked how much it will cost for a project bike because they saw our work for Yamaha Yard Build. They liked it. But they they changed their minds and asked if we can use a Honda XR instead. I said yes, definitely. )
“We’re so happy about this build and we’re glad that Mr. Coco Martin liked it.” says Jerish. Jerish also added that this custom bike project will be used in Coco Martin’s movie “Ang Panday.”
It was a solid collaboration for the gentlemen at TPG. Yet another milestone in their arsenal of quality custom bike builds. From a tryout backyard build to a legendary bike shows and trade fair, TPG has been working hard to satisfy their clients vision of a well crafted motorcycle. Congrats to Tokwa Party Garage Team for a job well done.
