Kim Scholer’s custom Nimbus bobber

Nimbus bobber motorcycle
In Denmark, everybody knows Nimbus motorcycles. They were built between 1919 and 1960 by a company that also made the Nilfisk vacuum cleaner, and today they have a reputation for being reliable if unassuming transportation. This custom Nimbus bobber, however, is very different.

Two years ago, Kim Scholer spent two months touring Japan on it, and recorded his trip in a blog. The story was picked up by the excellent British magazine Classic Bike last month, and now Motorcycle Classics has run a feature on how the bike was built. It’s entertaining reading.
