Revolt Cycles is based in the Middle Islands of the Philippines. Cebu City, to be exact. They have been building bikes for the past three years now and riding for nearly two decades. Their mission warms the chambers of our oily, piston-pumping hearts:
We do each of our builds with pride and passion, as the love of motorcycles has been embedded deep in our very hearts ever since. Our country is still catching up with the scene but every single day it is growing bigger and bigger.
We solicited Revolt Cycles to feature this TMX 155 bratstyle build after seeing it on the company’s Instagram profile (@revoltcycles). We were immediately struck by the neat, classic lines of the build, and the TMX 155 was a bike we weren’t very familiar with–all the more fun! Plus, we love featuring bikes from up-and-coming scenes/locales, like the Philippines.
We’ll let Juan Yu from Revolt Cycles give you the full story on the build.
The “Silver Surfer” TMX 155: In the Builder’s Words
(By Juan of Revolt Cycles. With our highlights.)
We present #RVLT12, the “Silver Surfer,” a Honda TMX 155. What started out as a beat up daily commuter, we saved it and gave it all it deserves to shine back again on the road with a full engine rebuild and a 26mm aftermarket carb. Fitted with wide aluminum rims wrapped with our premium tires, the RT TYRE 4.50×17, for that mean, classic, beefy look.
We installed minimalist lights and winkers, diamond stitched leatherette brown seat, single speedometer with indicators and custom mustache handlebars. Fabricated and customized stainless steel battery box fitted on the frame triangle with side key ignition.
Equipped with a detachable skateboard/surfboard rack as Drew requested for his weekend DH long board mountain shreds with buddies and occasional surf sessions across town. Comes on with a classic CB125 original pipe system that complemented it more on its classic predecessor, the CB125. With pride and honor, this bike will be our first to roam around the streets of Cagayan De Oro City.
