At the Bandit9 Shop, Bandit Chief Daryl Villanueva will tell you that he doesn’t and will never play by the rules followed by most custom builders. He works without any constraint – certainly not any from clients – his professional joy being to create kinetic art and to build moving sculptures.
His latest work is called The Bishop, a 125 CC Honda featuring an aluminum unibody, a gas tank with side panels made of either walnut, oak or teak, a custom exhaust & muffler, a custom suspension a charcoal grey suede seat, an electric starter, and LED brake lights encased in quartz glass. Villanueva will build only 9 of those and it will cost you about $6900, plus shipping from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where Bandit9 Studio is located. More info at Bandit9.
