21068

What’s up moto heads, again we are here to share what our country has to offer in custom motorcycle building. Speaking about custom rides, we are always blessed to have staple low displacement motorbikes as donors. What you see is what you get, but something that set aside Philippine custom builders, they are very resourceful. When proper skill, research and base expertise can create huge improvements.

 

Honda TMX 125

Basically one of the most economical commuter bike here in the Philippines. Boasts of its traditional design, historical image pumped with modern technology. Standard retail prices, affordable. Arguably the one to start off when it comes to custom bike building.

Nothing truly much to say, when asked the builder, but we all know bike language when one speaks about it. The lone builder of this bike adds some inputs with the building process, but respects what the donor wants with the bike.

 

“…Sa totoo lang po wala. 26 years na po akong fabricator, nung umuwi ako galing Qatar, dito sa Pinas wala akong source of income…”

“..kaya gumawa ako ng bike, mga lowrider bike nung umpisa, hanggang nakilala po ako sa buong mundo sa pag gawa ko ng lowrider bike at syempre dito sa pinas..”

“..Pinakita na rin sa Matang Lawin, Rated-K, Jojo A, at sa pag kaka alam ko sa Unang Hirit. Gusto din nila ipakita yung mga lowrider na gawa ko, nung time na lumabas na ang bike ko sa LOW RIDER MAGAZINE..”

“..Sabi ko sa sarili ko tama na ang low rider kasi nakuha ko na yung gusto ko…”

“..Mapa-sama sa pinaka mataas na magazine ng lowrider. Kaya nag shift po ako sa motor ngayon. At yun din ang inspiration ko, ang makilala bilang magaling na motor bike builder..”

“..lahat po puro pinapagawa lang sakin, idea ng customer ko dinadagdagan ko na lang po ng konti..”

 

“..naniniwala ako na dapat yung may ari parin ng motor or bike ang masunod sa dream ride nila. Hindi pwde paki alaman ng fabricator ang gusto ng may ari, kasi hindi naman fabricator ang nag pagawa at lalong lalo na hindi fabricator ang may dream bike na ginagawa nya..”
