Kanji the Prismatic Hyper Underbone Showbike from Sipalay City

For this week we are featuring a "Millennium Japanese Underbone Bike" inspired Raider 150. The bike is owned by Lovely Kailah Lademora a member of Suzuki Owners Club Team Pilipinas. The bike is basically inspired by Japan's underworld custom car culture hence they dubbed it the “Kanji”. Staying true to its theme they took on a Japanese approach on how they could make a dominant underbone such us the Raider stand out even more. So the crew behind it gave it a prismatic pink chrome finish just like the head turning Lambo's or Domestic Supercars in Tokyo with their chrome body paint giving this prismatic effect when any kind of light strikes it.

The Team Behind the Bike are the most trusted friends of Kailah specially the Suzuki Owners Club Sipalay Chapter and Team Ekiong Sy headed by Erickson Gaite of Dumaguete City. Their help was crucial in making the “Show Bike” build a success. The challenges faced by the team was the shipping and ordering of parts as they only used top of the line parts which would match their theme. The integration of the parts was also a challenge as they wanted all the components to adhere seamlessly to the overall concept of the bike.

Venom wide tire Honda Zoomer from Minglanilla Cebu

For this week we are featuring a standout scooter that blasted on the scooter modifying scene here in Cebu last August 2015.  This scooter was modified by a Team based in Minglanilla Cebu for the sole purpose of grabbing your eyeballs and make your head turn 360 degrees if necessary to get your attention. The scoot is a beautiful fusion of Styles of Thai, Californian mixed with Philippine flair. The bike is owned by Anna Marie Mata a house wife who is a testament that scooter modifying is not only for men.  In a contest mostly dominated by men Anna proves that girls can slug it out with the best bike modifiers out there.

The wide tire trend especially for the Honda Zoomer can be traced back in early 2000s when the Honda Zoomer hit the shores of the USA.  It shed its playful nature by shedding its skin to expose its bare frame and fitted with super wide tires. The scoot was warmly embraced by custom-vehicle culture and was now dubbed as the "Ruckus" immortalized in the "California Love" video a testament to its rugged style which would later on spread its influence around the globe. Fast forward to Thailand the trend setter in the ASEAN who are years ahead in CNC technology compared to their ASEAN counterparts, they have seamlessly adapted the California wide tire influence in their local market and is now taking south East Asia by storm with their impeccable production of these precision made mag wheels to cater to the super wide tire trend for scooters.
