Pimping the Mio

Underneath the 40 year old in all of us lurks a teenager waiting to get out. I never really got to pimp the Honda Airblade to the extent I…er…Leakhana wanted so the new Yamaha Mio is going to get the full tilt. Leakhana has resigned herself to this as she knows I have been dying to do a project bike ever since our first scooter. On the weekend we visited Blue and White, Phnom Penh’s busiest moto pimping service based at Psar O’Russei. I stumbled across this mob when I went to get my air horn put in the other day and they were far nicer and seemed far cheaper and far busier than the shop that did the horn so they are my chosen shop from now on. On my our first visit we achaved ( yes..the spelling is correct…) the following customisations…

  1. Obligatory shrink wrapping to protect /minimise all panels from scratching  $9
  2. Temporary rubber grips for throttle and brake levers $1
  3. Very nice chrome rear view vision mirrors $2.50
  4. Custom floor mat $3
  5. Faux graphite key entry cover – gratis
  6. HDi white lights on either side that light  the bike up like a roman candle at night 😉 $10

Whilst the Blue and White lads were hard at work, Leakhana and I went and had a cold beer and some rice soup and when they finished the owner showed us his new shop which sells ULTRA trick rims and gear levers etc.

Uh Oh…Looks like another visit will be needed………
