We are always humbled by how the community has been influential, while it is ever growing, the culture sprouts in all the different provinces in the Philippines. We are more than just pleased to highlight the shared joy, while in full collaboration of ideas; dream bikes be made real despite conditions and difficulties presented along the way. Far out in the Northern part of the country, a backyard builder shares how he was inspired by the community.

 

 

Going Solo

Just like other stories shared by custom build makers, Jhap Acosta from Echague, Isabela was able to make his own Custom Suzuki Mola 150. Jhap is one who got inspired by the community to go on and build his own custom bike.

Like most people who DIY custom bikes from remote places, they are usually faced with the common challenge to source out parts needed for their projects.

“..Here in our province it’s hard to look some parts of my Suzuki Mola 150..” shared Jhap.

Just this month this April 2016, this project was done. While he was once just aspiring to create his own custom bike, much more if he could be of help in sharing this bliss. After all, the whole concept of a dream realized is to be a living witness and pass it on.
