A new reality show on Fox called “Househusbands of Hollywood” premiered recently. The show highlights stay at home dads and what it’s like to be married to a famous woman. The show airs on Saturdays at 9/8c
One of the men on the show, Grant Reynolds, is also an avid motorcyclist. Reynolds is married to Jillian Barber of FOX NFL Sunday and Good Day L.A.
In a recent interview Reynolds explained that his love of all things motorcycle came when he was in his early teens thanks largely to living a few doors down from a rider for Honda at the time. After graduating high school he was rooming with other famous riders and was hooked.
He got his first bike, a Kawasaki EX 500, when he was 15 and rode it “so hard and fast, it was scary”. He admits now looking back that his riding style was ‘stupid’ and dangerous.
Reynolds currently owns 6 different motorcycles: a 1973 FLH HD, 1959 BSA A7 Cafe, 2007 West Coast CFL, 1952 Moto Guzzi, 1967 BSA A65, 1952 BSA Bantam which he is currently restoring.
In 2007 Grant purchased a West Coast Chopper, it has a 113ci S&S, Baker 6 speed, 21″ drag bars. He says this is his ‘go to bike’ which he rides daily. He said working with Jesse James on his bike was a great experience because James “gets it” when it comes to designing the bike of your dreams. Reynolds bike was in the 2009 WCC calendar. He says he wants to get another one!
His daughter Ruby is getting the motorcycle bug but his wife Jillian Barber has lost a little interest since the baby was born.
Like all bikers, Reynolds is always on the lookout for another bike, a few new bikes actually.
