Cub Week Feature: Street Cub ‘Ryan’ by JFK

1141

It’s a booming culture, while Honda Super Cub C70‘s are being sold fast on social media sites, enthusiasts of the dubbed ‘toughest motorcycle’ had their own offerings of custom modifications, sharing their sentiments before, during and after the building process while giving tribute to the people who helped them along the way.

 

This is the fifth and final serving of Cub Week!

 

JFK | Jerry Formoso Kustoms

Nope, this is not the popular American President contrary to what we all know, but a funky backyard builder hailing from Las Pinas is what we would like to introduce, named Jerry Formoso.

 

“..nung dumadami na gamit ko, parang kailangan ko na ng pangalan…(laughs)”

 

Asked about when he started building, which was around 5 years ago, he shared us one of his sentimental builds, The Honda Streetcub named Ryan. This is Jerry’s 2nd custom motorcycle build.

 

“…found that bike sa likod bahay lang ng friend. He told me na merong motor, wala pa ako alam sa C70 nun. Sabi sakin umaandar yun pero parang junk na yung ichura nya. Sabi ko magandang project to, tamang tama katatapos ko lang ng minibike ko nun…”

“Sabi ko sige kunin ko mura lng naman eh. Tapos nagresearch ako about sa c70 napunta, ako sa page ng Jakarta…”

 

“Ayun andaming street cub! Hindi ko alam na street cub pala tawag nila pag custom C70. Then natuwa ako sabi ko gusto ko ng ganun…”

“Inaalam ko kung paano…nagsimula ako sa handle bar, gumawa ako, tutal marami naman akong gamit. Nakuha ko naman. Tapos kinalas ko na lahat. After nun, sourcing na ng pyesa…”

 

Tinatawanan lng ako nung naghahanap ako ng pyesa, sabi nila wala na daw nun, matagal na panahon na daw yun. Tapos nag punta ako sa lumang shop, ayun jackpot! Dami nyang pyesa…”

Tapos nakita ko si Rodnel Duran. Meron sya C70 dito lng din sa village nmin. Nagka-kwentuhan kami sbi nya gwa kami ng group. Sinubukan ko, ayun dumami sumali. Dun ko na nalaman na marami palang meron ding C70…”

 

“Yung ibang parts ko order ko pa abroad. Dumami na yung projects ko kaya after nito, binenta ko nalang sa kaibigan kong si Benny Luat. Ayun, nasa kanya na to ngayon…”
