Shinya Kimura Custom MV
 
2 Attachment(s)
Shinya Kimura is a Japanese custom bike builder that has set up shop in California. This is a build for a customer, 1974 MV 750S America with all new hand formed aluminum bodywork, balanced and blueprinted motor, and other custom touches. What do you guys think?

Dont see too many custom MV's, especially to this extent.

It looks like the result of a crash, or some kindergarten kids beating up a former decent bike.

Where's the "Like" button? Oops too much time spent on Facebook :-)
I like it; Kimura-san does great work (Zero Eng/Samurai Choppers)

I don't get it. Old drum brakes, spindly front forks and ugly as sin body work. Someone will like it.

Custom work is very subjective.
He obviously has fantastic hand skills to be able to do this with aluminium.
This is very extreme and most won't appreciate his artform but rather see a classic MV that doesn't have it's classic bodywork anymore.
Myself I would prefer to see the MV left alone due to it's rarity and pick another motorcycle that isn't on the endangered spieces list.

Agreed....Shinya's stuff is kind of rough looking in my opinion....fantastic details and craftsmanship, but not much in the way of appealing shape design. Should have done this with an old 1970's Z-1.
