SHINYA KIMURA - 2006 LEGEND OF THE MOTORCYCLE



Shinya Kimura and one of his creations at the Legends concours. There's a story behind the skeleton; Kiehl's is a big sponsor of this event, and Susan Towers, a VP, threw a reception two months before the event at Kiehl's in SF. My wife noted a skeleton on display, and asked Susan if she had any extras, for Darcy's school. Susan said yes, then we forgot all about it until the Legends, when suddenly a skeleton was waiting to be wheeled 400 yards from the Kiehl's booth at the show to our room. Shinya hijacked the prop for some pix; one was published in Old Bike magazine.
