To Serve and Protect, Sheriff Themed Honda Scoopy from Cebu City

By: Arnel B. Santos-Ynigo

For this week we are featuring something special for classic styled or British Moder styled aficionados out there. This scoot that has been making waves in the local bike show scene in Cebu and it has proven to be a crowd favorite especially with kids and fellow bike modifiers. The base bike is a Honda Scoopy and the theme is a combination of British Moder Style and a prevailing Police Sheriff concept. The scoot is owned by Mr. Danilo Lugatiman a Sales representative for Collims Food Industries and a proud member of Cebu Scoopy Club.

"I used to dream of becoming a police officer when I was young but the circumstances didn't allow me to become one.. So now, I just used that concept to reflect my dream.. This concept was aided by my wife and clubmates so I pursued and make this dream a reality through this bike." Sir Danilo reiterated during an interview.

Going into the bike it sports an aftermarket windshield, Stepboard cover and grills made by Felicity Scoot. The seat cover is custom made by QCR upholstery. One of the challenging mods of the scoot was uninstalling the rear mag wheel since they replaced it with a classic rim set. It damaged a lot of their tools but Danilo and his clubmates managed to get the job done. The crankcase cover was procured from Beatecs in Davao. The muffler cover is from Underscoot Zone. The headlight visor, signal light visor, saddle bag and an additional foot rest was from Vismotor Corporation. The taillight and ignition cover is from Strokers Moto. Brake lever from Type E Racing. The mini LCD TV and handset radio are from an Ayala store. The small spiral hand horns which we initially thought were procured overseas were actually available here in Cebu at Gaisano Main, but Sir Danilo had to scour several locations just to find it. Other accessories like the pistol and shotgun are bought from random shops here in Cebu and some are bought online. Sir Danilo also had the bike repainted to enhance the sheriff concept.

We ask Sir Danilo, As a bike modifier what is the most satisfying aspect of your hobby?
"The act of designing and thinking of ways to improve the concept of the bike and actually seeing the results immediately makes you feel proud. Being a head turner also makes you proud. Even when I am doing an errand and when I park my bike, people would notice and take
pictures of my bike and appreciate the work we put into it. The bike still serves its purpose, that makes it unique because as far as I know, people who are serious in joining motor shows, their bikes are not being used on the road anymore. I still use mine and still serves its purpose of bringing you from one place to another."
