Its been a week since the Art Of Speed Malaysia 2013 (AOSMY13), but im still thinking bout it. The impact was so strong, stronger than last yr AOSMY12. Feels like it should be held every month. It was breathtaking seeing all the cool custom scene happening in Malaysia. The crowd was also unbelievable. Its a good way to expose the custom scene to fellow Malaysian.
Kerkuscycles started the journey to AOSMY13, which is located at Citta Mall Subang as early as 830 am (Saturday). We was a bit late to be frank, I(Rockers Racer) over slept while Azree cannot wake up at all. All this due to staying overnight trying as much as we can to finish up our bikes to be displayed in AOSMY13. However Azree did came, but in the evening session. Kerkuscycles ride together with Naked13 Cafe Racer team. There was a bit hiccup during the ride tho. Bro Wa’s bike got some prob with his carb. We were stranded at the Subang Toll Complex for more than an hour trying to solve it. But in the end, we pushed the bike to AOSMY13, thanks to the teamwork.
The event was packed, right after we arrived. We made quite a cool entrance, all with leather jackets, noisy pipes and cafe racers bike. We know dat its hot, sooo hot, but leather jacket is a must! Met quite a few other cafe racer bikes at the event, some of them are familiar bikes from the FB page Cafe Racer Malaya. Good to know that more and more cafe racers exist in Malaysia.
AOSMY13, organized by our buddy Asep & his cool wife Deni, showcases all kind of custom in automotive. Be it cars, bikes, bicycles, hotrod & etc. Shows that Malaysian can be as creative as others in other parts of the world. Representative from Mooneyes Japan were also invited to this event, making a big history in our custom scene. Other builders from Thailand, Singapore & Indonesia also participate to showcase their custom products which to me really open up our eyes on how creative and innovative there are. Still a lot to learn here.
There were a few competition category held, and Kerkuscycles manage to get a prize from our famous car drifter, Tengku Djan “My Pick” award! A big recognition for Kerkuscycles, first time we ever won a prize. I will update on the other winners for each categories soon.
All in all, it was a big success as it was reported that around 60,000 people came for this event. A big salute and congratulation to bro Asep & Deni for their hardwork in making this custom scene alive and accepted by Malaysian. Its a good platform for builders like us in Malaysia to keep on customizing for da love of Art!
