|Zero Engineering Type 9 Bobber|
Zero Engineering was opened in Okazaki City, Japan in 1992 by Shinya Kimura, a bike designer and builder of immense creativity and craftsmanship. His "Zero Chop" and "Samuri" styles have inspired a lot of other designers. Kimura only builds with Harley-Davidson 45-degree V-twins and clones, such as the S&S 96ci Evo-style twin.The Type 9 can be upgraded to a monster 124ci engine, too.
|Zero Rear Suspension|
The springer fork is a Zero Engineering original design and manufacture... the springer fork is available to all builders, not just to buyers of a Zero bike. The Type 9 is shod front and rear with Firestone Deluxe Champions, 18" at the front, 16" at the back.
Cool bike... but if you are interested in just parts for your own bike build or a little retro-style customizing, then check out Zero's extensive lineup of parts. We've got a link below to Shinya Kimura's hard-to-get photoessay book about his motorcycles and design philosophy below.
Zero Engineering has stateside offices in Las Vegas.
