THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

Shinya Kimura - Art meets Machine

Functional Design + Speed + Bold Imagination = Shinya Kimura





Mr. Kimura creates visually stunning masterpieces at his workshop, Chabbott Engineering, in Azusa, CA, where these very fast and imaginative motosculptures come to life.

This amazing video gives us a glimpse into his work - "not merely building custom motorcycles -- but creating functional art by infusing his philosophy and aesthetic values into his sculpturally unique and rolling designs."

I was brought up surrounded by the smell of oil and steel, and the sound of machinery.... I think this is why this life suits me well

For me a motorcycle is more than art...
