Shinya Kimura is without a doubt my favorite bike builder. He is incredibly gifted. His partner Ayu is also gifted and brings an incredible karma into their mix. Lin and I were delighted to meet them at their shop Chabott Engineering in Azusa, CA last July. Shinya recently created a sculpture from pieces of metal and named it Mod Eater. You can see it on their site at www.chabottengineering.com
I took his piece a little further and put it on the ocean floor. Shinya's motorcycles and his non-bike creations inspire...that's what this illustration is about. One artist's originality and creativity inspiring another.
