Way to go Jay. Always been a Jay Leno fan. Jay is an honest down to earth guy despite all his money, toys, and fame. Look how he was dressed while out driving his $250,000 car.

I've admired Jay because he is such a down to earth motor head, even with all his money.

Wonder what bike that is. Almost looks like a Honda 305 Scrambler.

Good on Jay for helping a brother out .

I think the bike is a 70-72 CL350 . I cant recall just when the muffler changed from one unit for both pipes to the two single units.

Ya, I was going to say a 250 Scrambler. In pretty nice shape though.
Doesn't look like the owner knows much about it.

Looks like Jay is straightening the forks.

Yah, Jay's not too afraid of getting his fingers a little dirty.
but...
Got to wonder what the problem is. No tools to be seen.
One hand on throttle the other on the headlight.
Tach looks like it's reading '0'

Not to mention, the PERFECT pose and not a hint of camera jitter.
.
Publicity stunt?

Nah! If it was a publicity stunt, they would have camera jitter.

I want to give Jay the benefit of the doubt here. Nice story. Good job Jay!

I've heard that Leno used to be a certified Rolls Royce mechanic and does a lot of his own work just because he enjoys it. Of course, he has a shop that any NASCAR team would be proud to have.

Good on him. Probably found himself on the side of the road broke down with his intrusts in cars and bikes. Even the $250,000 ones break down sure that help just shows up a lot faster in those cases.

Happier then a slinky on an escalator.
