Henrik Hansen x Shinya Kimura

A short while back, I felt the need to tell a few friends about this Henrik Hansen-directed video highlighting the magnificent work of Shinya Kimura. And even though I consider myself a seasoned wordsmith, mere description does the work of Hansen and Kimura no justice. Apart from Kimura's jaw-dropping cycle designs, the magic of this video lies in Hansen's ability to almost recreate the smells and sensations of grease and forged steel; a mad scientist building his two-wheeled Frankenstein of fire, brushed aluminum and authentic power. Helmet and goggles are highly recommended.
