Thats a nice ride. I wonder how much they altered it from original.

Thats a ground up replica of Jays Brough Superior. It is powered by a 103 inch Knucklehead motor!! Can you say grenade?? If Paul Sr.'s arms get any bigger he is gonna need help carrying them!!!

It's neither a replica nor a restored bike. What they said was that Jay asked for a modern bike inspired by his Brough Superior but distinct in its own right. So, Paul Jr. designed and built the one above with some visual references to the Superior but it is a new bike and does not copy Jay's original. And, it looked awesome!!

He has a real one that he won't ride, so he showed it to them and said he would like something like it. They did sort of a "representation" of it, but it is all new stuff.
