Chabbott Engineering Azusa, California. Almost a year ago when we first acknowledged that Shinya Kimura was going to make a move on a tired BMW R90S, our hearts missed a beep. What would the motorcycle sculptor have in mind? What constitutes the perfect bavarian stiletto for Shinya? Of course several ideas and confabulations came across our, also turbulent, minds. Will the creature creep low… mean… & long? Well, as usually happens with individuals that systematically cross beyond their safety frontiers, it wasn’t meant to be another of Shinya’s slim, low racers. The teutonic wonder, with its tall, bulky, power plant, represented a clash in Shinya’s usual choice of train, and it is happening daily as you read this, in that quiet workshop where the sounds of jazz are whispered, while the always cool Menacing Ayu delights/enlightens a surrendered worldwide audience that can’t believe how this anthropomorphic machine is coming to life! A wild creature from the darkest depths of a secret ocean.
