Editor's Pick

RSA director Henrik Hansen created this short film about artisan motorcycle maker Shinya Kimura, founder of Zero Engineering and the Zero-Style bike, known for its rigid gooseneck,pre-'84 Harley engine, bare metal, spoked wheels and springer front. The bikes are inspired by the Japanese wabi sabi philosophy of austere refinement. Since then Kimura has left Zero to launch his new studio, Chabott Engineering, whose bikes were featured in the 2008 Iron Man film.
