The crew of Revolt Cycles, based in the Philippines, continues to turn out some of our very favorite customs. One of their favored platforms is the Honda TMX125 Alpha, better known as the Honda CB125 or CG125 in various other markets. The small Honda thumper is simply hard to beat: stone-ax reliable, packed with moxie, and capable of impressive transformations in the hands of skilled builders.
Now the crew is back with an RVLT32, “Blanko,” a Honda 125 brat tracker built for the daily commute. Below, we get the full story on the build, along with a full deck of photos from Rodulfo Ouano, aka The Jeb Photo Mercenary.
Honda TMX / CG125 Brat Tracker: In the Builder’s Words
This once again another whip of the reliable little Honda TMX125/CB125/CG125.
We made the build as simple and basic bratstyle look as possible requested by the owner and the rest was ours to give. Minimalist headlight, turn signal and speedo instrument and indicators.
The bike was painted in black, stitched with a quality ribbed brown leather seat perched on an angled tail seat hoop.
Wrapped on with the premium hip 4.00×18 front and 4.50×17 Fuckstone Deluxe tires on black aluminum rims laced on with stainless steel spokes giving that fat brat look.
Minimalist fenders with our single led brake lamps and customed brackets at the rear.
A single lowside full exhaust system with a beautiful thumper note. A single pod air filter cleaner for the neat see through look. Overall we have produced a cool black brat style daily commuter that can make heads turn in every corner in the city it goes.
Hence BLANKO, meaning blank or plain, simple yet defined.
