This video is a profile of custom motorcycle builder Chicara Nagata, and Nagata has it going on.

Nagata has won numerous awards for his custom motorcycles, some of which take him over 7000 hours to build, which, I guess, elevates them to the level of art, at least the kind of art people pay for these days.

And they pay a lot for them.

They sell for over $1 million each and can be seen at the Ippodo Gallery in NYC.
