Fuel tanks and jerseys, helmets and tools, calligraphy and photography: Shania Kimura’s studio – or rather the beautiful and organized chaos – is one of the world’s most sought after (and most interesting!) Cape sex. And full of beautiful things. Every year, only two or three motorcycles of all kinds come out of its star chamber. He focuses on just one bike at a time during his editing efforts to keep fully engaged. The fluency and harmony of Japanese aesthetics, as well as the vibe of Japanese aesthetics, play an essential role.

2022 BMW R18 The Wal Classic Motorcycle – Features and Specs

Suspension and frame components

The frame and suspension components are the same as the original. In that sense, it is possible Shania did not see any room for improvement in her “game-bearer.”

Paint first, Shaina gave all the pieces that were to be hammered a uniform texture before coating them with powder in a bronze accent.

Seat

Shania made the set on her backdrop Leathers took over preparation in Japan. The deep bucket seat allows riders almost wholly to immerse themselves in the motorcycle.

Fuel Tank

To increase fuel efficiency, the classic tier drop design has been replaced with a different shape of petrol tank: the fuel tank now stores around an extra gallon of gasoline due to its extended box shape.

Exhaust

After completing all the components of the exhaust bodywork, Shania thought long and hard before concluding that the pictorial lines of the exhaust pipes needed nothing more than a black coat of paint.

My way of making and feeling is born. “No sketches, drawings, blueprints, or models.”

Where does the feeling for Shania’s work come from? He specializes in his parents’ rivet factory in the heart of Tokyo, with all the heavy scents of oil and cold steel, as well as the constant shelling of machines. All of this influenced his subconscious mind and served as the basis for the ideas of his early workshop. His father was a poet and his mother was a calligrapher. As a result, Shania has had an aesthetic sense since birth. As a result, he carefully researches the history, roots, and personality of each bike and pays close attention to every aspect.
