Moto Builds Pilipinas - Moto and Music Show and Biker Build-Off

Tiendesitas will be home to the most awesome custom-built bikes on the 13th and 14th of this month.  Big names in the custom industry will be fielding in their entries, such as Hardcore Brothers Customs, Laguna Choppers and more.

UPDATE:  Oh Boy Oh Boy!

June 13-14 was subtly a historical for the country's custom builders community.  Tiendesitas became home to 80 eyecandies to any motorcycle fanatics.  The airconditioned wing of Tiendesitas displayed custom and vintage bikes in their original and restored form.

Yamaha has a display and they featured the Bolt, without revealing too much.  The R15 made an appearance.  Would be glad to see the R3 though.

I went first straight to my booth, settled down.  Then I started to feast my eyes on them candies.

Ropali also was a sponsor in the event, and I saw "my" old motorcycle with sidecar, the Ural Retro

Scooters!  They just reinforced my desire to get a scooter for the rainy season.

Then there's the cafe racers and other vintage stuff.  Good vintage stuff.

A Honda Cub!  Oh yeah!  It's only the greatest motorcycle ever made!

BMW was also present!

Of course.  Any vintage/classic show wouldn't be complete with Royal Enfield.

Kawasaki Leisure Bikes!

I think this one just stole the show, easily.

Our good friends from Touratech was there!  

Our media friends are present to cover and record this wonderful event!

Otterbox!  Dang, I forgot to buy one for my phone.

Mr. Paolo Abrera and his winning Honda.  Great job man!

Cruisers?  Of course Harley-Davidson should be there.

I took the opportunity to ask people around about my new lid.  Looks like they liked it.  Some with a few suggestions.  Well, thanks and noted brothers!

Oh hi.  I remember you!

Wheeltek joined in on the fun.

You know it's a fine scooter if it's featured in Scooterista Magazine.

Saw my highschool classmates there.  

Spyder helmets and eyewears as prizes.  Oh yeah!

I was one of the judges by the way. And I tell you, it wasn't easy!  I had to take my time to nitpick each and every bike for their craftsmanship and all.

Yep, she's at it again.  Ms. Love-Love Tioseco.

Ok let's see at some of the details of the bikes:

One of the most awaited part of the event was the unveiling of the builds from the country's top custom builders.

The first reveal was a Suzuki GD110 transformed into a beautiful cafe racer! Drool!

Our good friends from UHAW dropped a visit!

Vandalism by Love-Love Tioseco

Mr. Raymon Gabriel, this year's chairman of BOSS Ironman.

Bands!  Yes!

Oh and finally I got to test the Cardboard!  I'm gonna get one!

The five contestants for the bike buildoff:  

It was a wonderful event, and we all thank Mr. Zach Lucero for commitment and valiant effort for making this happen.  Also to the hardworking people of Radio Republic who has been working their assess off for the duration of the two-day event.  The builders, customizers and restorers all deserve recognition for making into a reality!  Salute!
