Honda XR125 Tracker by Jerry Formoso Kustoms

Honda XR125 Street Tracker

The Philippines have become a hotbed of custom bikes — especially small-displacement, beach-ready thumpers like the 3B Customs XR200 and Revolt Cycles TMX155. Now we’re proud to feature another surfer’s delight from the islands — this Honda XR125 “Surf Tracker” built by Jerry Formoso of Jerry Formoso Kustoms (#jfkustoms).  Nicknamed “Malibu,” the bike was designed to transfer a surfer from one break to another, complete with surfboard rack and trail necessities.

The Honda XR125 is a small thumper with a big heart — nearly bulletproof on city streets, muddy tracks, and dirt paths.  The 12-hp motor makes for a top speed of around 60 mph with fuel economy in the 60 mpg range. However, few would call the factory XR handsome or beautiful — far from.
