Moto Builds Pilipinas 2015

I’ve been wanting to upgrade my scooter for a while now. It hasn’t been running as smoothly as it used to no matter how many times we’ve taken it to the mechanic. Visiting Moto Builds Pilipinas was like entering a candy store when you’re sugar deprived. There were just so many awesome custom-built bikes under one roof.

It seems like Cafe Racer and Tracker style bikes are making a comeback in the Philippines and seeing the vintage and classic machines firsthand just reinforced my desire to switch to one. I especially liked this Yamaha Surf Bike by Kratos Customs Cycles.

Moto Builds Pilipinas was a Music and Moto Show and Biker Build-Off held last June 13-14, 2015 at the Tiendesitas Trade Hall. Around 80 motorcycles were displayed during the 2-day celebration that showcased the creativity of Filipino bike builders and restorers from different parts of Manila and neighboring provinces. The event also displayed models from top motorcycle brands like Royal Enfield, Kawasaki, Harley Davidson, BMW and Vespa. Here are a few photo highlights from the event:

One thought on “Moto Builds Pilipinas 2015

  1. remember me from Vic’s team? Back in Korea – here I have my eye on Honda, specifically because they avoid the overhang of most Vespa type thing – small and a thin body. Fat tackies as we’d say in Seoff Effrica, but small again. Need plenty of blue LEDs or such but perfection…
