Interview with Shinya Kimura

Shinya Kimura is back in front of the camera again. As one of the world's most recognised custom builders it's not all that surprising. This latest insight into the world of Shinya comes from Evan Robert Scott for 'On Paper Magazine' and delivers plenty of great footage of his desirable machines in action...

"In his own words, Shinya Kimura is a motorcycle mechanic. To the rest of the world, Shinya is an artist, building kinetic sculptures that are labor intensive, one-of-a-kind, and ultimately utilitarian. Raised in Tokyo, he moved to LA about a decade ago to escape his growing fame and to quietly go on with his life as a mechanic. Acclaim has annoyingly still followed him. His bikes are tough, perfectly made machines that are thrilling to ride...Evan Robert Scott
