Jay Leno fan has unique retirement gift for comedian

(WJAR) A loyal fan is hoping to present a retirement gift to Jay Leno, who will end his reign Thursday on NBC's "The Tonight Show."

Dan Berry loves to talk cars, motorcycles and metalworking.

Berry, a Providence sculptor and self-proclaimed gear head, just finished a gift that was 15 years in the making.

"I started this wax in '99," he said.

Berry said a primary side cover for a motorcycle is the face of the bike. This face was made special for Jay Leno in his own likeness.

"The chin, the hair," Berry said.

It started as a 10th anniversary present, but it wasn't done in 2003. Now, it's slated as a retirement gift, if Leno will accept it.

"I put a lot into this and there's no more appropriate, I think, bon voyage for Jay as unique as this," Berry said.
