If there is one reason we chose to partner up with Wild Customs Philippines to build our fleet, that was for the talent and the skills that allow Alfredo Aranda to build, from the ground up, a custom motorcycle. In this little workshop with very limited resources, the lightly used term “built, not bought” is taken very seriously.
Wild Custom’s Silver 200 is probably one of the best examples of what happens when Wild gets wild with his mallets and welding machines. Did we mention all of this was done in just about a month?
This Honda XR200 was brought in by Roger from Navatek, the guy behind the seats on Wild Customs and Sakay & Co’s motorcycles. The idea was to create something to shake the world of 2017’s Moto Builds Pilipinas (The Philippines’ largest custom bike show) a little and they decided to go with a design inspired by a very nice TPJ Custom’s Harley Davidson build.
The frame was built in-house along with the fenders (which house the electrical system), fairing, exhaust system, swing-arm, handlebar, gas tank…
This is one of those builds that one can stare at for hours, whether it’s your style or not, it clearly has a very high level of craftsmanship. It was not a surprise to see it earn the 1st prize in the freestyle category in Moto Builds Pilipinas. Congratulations guys!!! Keep them coming!!!
