any bike modifier actively engaged in motor show competitions, Aaron started as
a spectator. But the more he watched, it made him even more fascinated with the
art of modifying motorcycles. “My Yellow Mamba started out as Decal
Concept bike. I always emphasized the importance of detail to my overall theme.
When I started out in the world of show bike competition, it was anything but
easy. Building the bike is a challenge in itself but hearing negative comments
about my build was really difficult. But I never gave up, I kept thinking of
ways of improving my bike until I met the individuals who have been
instrumental in my success as a show bike competitor. Through a friend, I met
Pete Allan Magat of H2O Philippines and they certainly took my theme to a whole
new level with their custom hydro paint. I also had a custom fiberglass seat
made and it was also hydro painted with carbon fiber details. I also had my
aftermarket parts custom-chromed by Raigo Chrome. Then I met Raul Nonong Caballero
of Nonong Motor Parts and with his help, we started to push our limits and
really be aggressive in pursuing difficult mods for our bike. First of which is
the dual tire fitted to the rear mag wheel and we converted it from chain drive
to belt drive. These mods were not easy but we are proud to say that this bike
is fully functional,” narrated Aaron.
“Simula ng ma-modify ko ng maayos ang motor ko, doon na ako nakakuha ng awards at nagkaroon din ako ng kompyansa na dumayo sa ibat-ibang lugar upang lumahok sa ibat-ibang motor shows. Nakaka- overwhelm and lahat ng pagod, hirap, puyat at sakripisyo ay nasusuklian ng hindi maipaliwanag na kasiyahan. Sa likod ng aking mga nakamit na tagumpay, ako’y lubos na nagpapasalamat sa mga taong tumulong sa akin – sa family and friends ko, kay Mr. Raul Nonong Caballero (Nonong Motor Parts), Mr. Pete Allan Magat (H2O Philippines), Puma De Guzman (Mini Puma), Louie Santos (Decals Concept), Mikki Torres, sa Team Yellow Mamba, Raigo Chrome, Royal Skull, Pink Patotoy at kay Alvin Surnit. Muli, ako’y lubos na nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng inyong naitulong. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa InsideRACING Magazine sa pag-feature ng bike ko. To God be the glory,” Aaron shared.
