Shinya Kimura video: Building bikes from the soul

Legendary Japanese bike builder Shinya Kimura has just released this incredibly beautiful and emotive video about his passion for bike building. Shot in and around his Chabott Engineering workshop in California, Shinya tells the story of his background and reveals the creative methods he uses to build his one-off creations. Owners of Kimura built bikes include Hollywood actor Brad Pitt.

deus e machina

God in the machine indeed.  All the reasons i need to keep my project alive in the first floor.  Will put the kids in front of this video soon:-).

You can feel the piston strokes and the valves doing their things, bouncing off the cams.  The motors speak to you.  No doubt the latest and greatest plastics are faster in first gear, but that is not the point.  Neither is the point liquid cooling on two huge cylinders.  The point being (IMHO) letting every journey touch you inside.  Why waste life not living?

Umm, time to up the meds again i think.

It must pay I guess ?

I've seen a few of Kimura's bikes on the net - I like the styling & the hand-made look of his bikes but I'm not sure they'd be any fun round corners with such slow steering ?
