One day I hope to elevateÂ my love of the open road from my ratty push bike into something likeÂ one Shinya Kimura’s steeds. One thing I always find myself missing from home and uni is a real workshop. I spent a lot of time as a kid on the farm buried in the workshop tinkering, and many hours in bike shops workshops over the years as well. Shinya set up theÂ legendaryÂ ZeroÂ EngineeringÂ in Japan then moved to the states to startÂ Chabott Engineering creating some amazingÂ masterpieces, one of myÂ favouritesÂ being Hoon.
Above is a perfectly shot min doc. Filmed and director Henrik Hansen, it does an amazing job ofÂ capturingÂ theÂ atmosphereÂ of his workshop and theÂ phenomenalÂ focusÂ of a man’s life passion.
