Winnie the Pooh Themed Yamaha MIO MX from Carcar City

By: Arnel B. Santos-Ynigo

For this week we are featuring a Show Scooter Built in Carcar City. A City known for its
Spanish Heritage Structures, Ampao, Bucarillo, Banana Chips and its famous special Chicharon.
The bike is a Yamaha Mio MX owned by Kenny C. Pelimer a resident of Carcar City and
a member of US1 Scooter Club of Cebu.

Going into the bike it is a essentially a Thai inspired scoot with Filipino flair. Kenny wanted his
setup to be light weight and nimble.  For the suspension it uses Trusty Front shocks, and TTGR Rear shocks. For the braking system it uses Racing Boy Brake levers, and to compensate for the additional horsepower Kenny installed Racing Boy Big Disk 300mm. To keep the weight down the scoot uses Yoko rims paired with Chikada lightened hubs, they also installed Somjin flat seat racing saddle.

For the lighting Kenny tapped the expertise of Allan Fernandez who installed the custom projector headlights and the led body lighting.  Kenny wanted to make the bike standout during bike shows so he tapped the services of airbrush artist extraordinaire Cocoi Fanco Jagape who gave it the Winnie the Pooh  themed paint job. The overall theme was basically the suggestion of Kenny's wife Lean Cecille who loves Winnie the Pooh.  But don't let the whimsical exterior fool you the bike is an aggressive machine underneath as the team made sure it will not be a slouch on the road. For the engine setup they utilized a 59mm Option1 Block set, Jiso C3 racing cams, Mtrt torque drive, Rrgs Clutch Bell, Rrgs 13.5 pulley set, LHK lining, 14/41 Mtrt Gear set and to finish things off  the team installed Mtrt Fan, Mtrt Ignition Coil and ORBR Racing Pipe.

The bike is an ongoing work in progress and it was an accumulated effort over the years until it reached its  current state. So despite Kenny's busy work schedule he was able to finish his show scoot and his hard work has been paying off as the bike has been racking up wins from the shows it has participated in.
