Established in 2005 HEIWA MOTORCYCLE became very popular with it’s slim and low interpretation of almost any kind motorcycles. The unbelievable attention to the details, the reduction of the structures to the max and their very clean line make these builds unique in the world of custom bikes.


‚Yaniv’s‘ pick at the 2013 Yokohama Custom Show, Kengo Kimura’s Triumph T20 Derringer 200, a 199cc brit single of the early sixties.


Just …slim!
