Shinya Kimura

One day I hope to elevate my love of the open road from my ratty push bike into something like 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 the legendary Zero Engineering in Japan then moved to the states to start Chabott Engineering creating some amazing masterpieces, one of my favourites being Hoon.

Above is a perfectly shot min doc. Filmed and director Henrik Hansen, it does an amazing job of capturing the atmosphere of his workshop and the phenomenal focus of a man’s life passion.
