Video: Shinya Kimura – Motorcycle Artist

Don’t call him a custom motorcycle builder, Shinya Kimura is really more of any artist whose medium is on two-wheels (among other formats). In an industry that centers around products that should resonate with their owners, Kimura finds a way to put more soul into metal than just about anyone else we know. Check out after the jump this unlisted YouTube video by Henrik Hanssen, which shows Kimura and his work from his shop Chabott Engineering.

  • I’ve been following Shinya’s work for years. It’s unlike any other builders’ work. Wanting to own a Chabbott Engineering bike gives me reason to work harder, because they aren’t cheap, but they aren’t a common look, either.

    Jenny- Props on the post, and that video touches me…. but not “down there.”
