“Napakagastos nya sobra lalo na sa ordinaryong empleyado lamang po na tulad ko pero napaka enjoy mag build lalo na pag nabili mo gusto mong pyesa kahit mapa secondhand pa yan, iba ang pakiramdam,” said Chubi Puzon, the owner of this drag bike concept Honda Wave 125 converted to 192cc.
So far, Chubi’s drag bike has one out of two NLK pipe mounted left here in the Philippines. Chubi, who is also into playing guitar and online games aside from tinkering motorcycles, hails from Bauang, La Union is a fan of InsideRACING for a long time now even when he didn’t have a motorcycle back then. He started building bikes in 2017 with his second motorcycle, a Honda Wave 125 CX (Gilas). He was influenced by his twin friends Nico and Rico Fernandez. Chubi also joined THDM and eventually built his drag bike. Building/modifying bikes brings happiness to Chubi who plans to build a Wave 125 Vanz in time. He also encourages fellow builders and motorcycle enthusiasts to keep their feet on the ground. “Be humble lamang po sa bisyo natin. Hindi natin maiiwasan ang mga inggit, normal lang yan, wag na lang natin patulan or pansinin. Ang importante wala tayong tinatapakan na tao,” he adviced.
“Nagpapasalamat ako kila Nico and Rico Fernandez at kuya Varen Sotelo. Sila talaga ang nagturo sa akin kung paano magsimula. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa matiyagang mga mekaniko ko na sila Riemart Puertas, Bryan dela Rosa at kay kuya Jeffrey Pastor. Sa THDM Zone Surfing, salamat sa suporta nyo at lastly, thank you sa girlfriend kong si Rashel Bambalan na walang sawang sumusuporta sakin since day one. Pinaka memorable so far itong pagkakataon na binigay ng InsideRACING sa akin na ma-feature sa magazine. Napakalaking achievement ito para sa akin,” Chubi expressed.
