While he may have retired from being a staple of the late night show scene, Jay Leno is also known as somewhat of a car and motorcycle enthusiast. His garage has a paltry sum though. A mere 886 vehicles. Yes. The man with the most famous chin in the world likes his cars. With 769 cars, and 117 motorcycles, Leno’s collection is, without a doubt, the largest private collection in the world. And being a man who also loves to be behind the camera, it is no surprised that since his retirement from Late Night, he’s created web series in his spare time, Jay Leno’s Garage.
One of the most interesting and newest episodes, the video above, talks about an incredible customized 1975 Honda CB750. A jumble of parts and designs that looks like it some sort of mechanical hydra, the motorcycle actually runs beautifully, especially with its new LED turn signals and digital instrument panel that give this classic bike a modern edge.
Built by a custom bike shop owner in his free time, this frankenstein of a vehicle with parts taken from bikes cannibalized from the 70’s, 80’s and even some modern parts. The video has Jay and the bike’s creator, Adam Gaspic, walk through nearly every part of the bike, showing off the beauty of this amalgamized Honda, from the fancy little mirrors to the specialized licence plate bars. It just goes to show the industry out there to create custom bikes and the adaptability of Honda bikes is vast. And Leno’s ride around Southern California looks like a blast, too.
