This eye-catching modified Honda TMX is owned by Nickson Pascua, an Assistant Kitchen Supervisor in a famous restaurant. Nickson is from Vigan City, Ilocos Sur.
He started modifying his own bike in 2007. Nickson’s first motorcycle was a Honda Dio1 and he did typical mods at first like making it lowered. After graduating and having a job, he then had a Honda Wave 125 and after saving, he got his Honda TMX 125 which he also modified. Unfortunately, that TMX got car napped. Nickson saved again and bought a TMX 155 and thought of modifying it using his own concept. He decided to use mono shock and put fairings at the rear but he’s not knowledgeable in welding so he had a friend help him. Then they started to modify the motorcycle from the custom swing arm, to seat assembly and exhaust. It was in 2013 when they began modifying Nickson’s TMX 155. Through the years, they are changing some parts like tire size, exhaust or paint.
This project bike took a long time to achieve Nickson’s desired outcome. It’s difficult sometimes to source out parts as he also considers his budget but it’s very satisfying for him as after the challenges, he got the build that he wanted. Most of the time, people would be surprised that it’s a TMX and they greatly appreciate the build. Some even said that Nickson should have a copyright for it.
“I modify my bike base sa gusto ko. Parang adobo lang yan, maraming klase ng adobo pero ito ang gusto kong timpla, kaya satisfied ako,” expressed Nickson. He also encourages fellow builders/enthusiasts to build to their or their client’s satisfaction.
Nickson plans for his bike to have inverted front suspension and own headlight design. He also has an ongoing brat style project bike.
“Gusto kong pasalamatan una ang Diyos, ang pamilya ko lalo na ang asawa ko na sumusuporta sa nag-iisang bisyo ko na motor at ang aking parekoy na si John Phillip Velesquez na kasama kong gumawa sa motor ko,” shared Nickson.
