“The Wal” by Japanese customizer Shinya Kimura is a one-off project starting from a BMW R 18 during the “SoulFuel” series , the collaboration between BMW Motorrad and some customizers. Following are the equally interesting creations designed by Roland Sands and Dirk Oehlerking.

Model

Shinya Kimura mainly dealt with more traditional specimens, but recently began to devote himself to more current bikes.

A project defined by the “hands-on” talent of the Japanese customizer and linked to a precise idea: an “animal specimen” , a powerful but “good-natured” motorcycle . It has a special finish resulting from the use of bronze colored powder paint, placed after the components have been hammered to provide a texture to the surface. Once the bodywork was defined, the symbolic shape of the standard production exhaust was confirmed, but painted black.

An example of "Sports Endurancer" , characterized by a larger tank and different from the aesthetic level compared to the original, having a greater capacity of about a gallon and moving the seat position backwards. This is defined in such a way as to propose an elongated and harmonious position, up to the rounded rear light. The seat shell cushion is designed by Kimura himself and handcrafted by Backdrop Leathers in Japan.

The handlebar is eight inches narrower and 6 inches lower, as reported. Furthermore, there is a half-shell fairing that embraces two headlights placed asymmetrically and which look like a reference to the image of a whale, together with the “toothed” motif visible below. The design of the side covers is also noted so as not to affect the vision of the original frame.
