Shinya Kimura Motorcycle Builder


In 1992, Kimura opened Zero Engineering, based in Okazaki City, Japan and his name quickly became synonymous with the “Zero-style” of motorcycle building.

Zero-style typically relies upon a pre ’84 Harley engine, a springer front-end, spoked wheels, and the balance of the bike made from bare metal parts salvaged from old rescued Harleys. It is a style that is both minimalistic and vintage and combines both form and function.

Since 2006, Shinya Kimura has been operating Chabott Engineering in Azusa, CA., where he continues to develop motorcycle building as an art form.
