My reasoning behind wanting Grayson for the Top Gear job is simple. In practice, auto exotica is a lot more about art than people are willing to acknowledge. If you try to use all the performance of fast cars or bikes on the highway you’ll either end up dead or nicked. It’s much more about how vehicles look and make you feel than ultimate performance. Therefore, why not get a straight speaking artist with often controversial views to do the job. Simples.
The bike that Grayson had built by Battistini’s Customs is a Harley Knucklehead and he’s named it the “Kenilworth AM1”. Unfortunately, Battistini’s Customs have now shut their Bournemouth shop to concentrate on their online business.
