We didn’t think Jason Momoa or his family could get any cooler- well, that is until he posted this. In honour of Father’s Day, the Game of Thrones actor posted a video featuring a Harley Davidson motorcycle he and his two children recently built together.

HAPPY PAPA’S DAY everyone. Please go check out our new lil film subscribe to our YouTube channel LINK in BIO. For me, it started off so simple. A boy on a motorcycle for the first time tearing through the backyard. It was only a moment in time, but the ride changed something in me, it was the moment where the wild stomped in. I saved an old rusty motor to build a bike one day, and it’s taken 3 decades to fulfill the dream. Over the years the dream evolved and now all I wanted was to build a bike with my children, to give them the same experience I had as a child, to give them the wind, and the freedom of the ride. A broken motor inspired a dream, and taught me it’s better to share those moments with my babies, the moment where the wild stomped in. What started out as a visit to @harleydavidson to pay my respects turned into a new partnership. I wanted to honor their legacy, too ride is in my blood. So my friends and I went out and shot this video on our own. To show them how important they are in my life. We built a Harley, our memories are woven into the metal, but it’s more than that, it has become a Momoa family heirloom. The legacy is Harley’s, but the memories are ours. Mahalo for the memories. Trailer music.

In a video exclusively posted to People.com, the actor and his two children, 11-year old Lola and 10-year old Nakoa-Wolf, talked about how they built the impressive bike from scratch. He revealed that his wife, actress Lisa Bonet, was initially resistant to the project. But with a little persuasion, he was able to get her onboard.
“My wife was like, ‘You’re not allowed to ride with the kids on the bike, absolutely not.’ I went, ‘What if I built the kids a sidecar?'” Momoa said in the video. “She goes, ‘I’ll think about it.'” In the video, the celebrity is seen teaching his young kids how to properly sit on and ride the bike.
Momoa has been married to Bonet since 2017, although they’d already been together for a decade at that point, as they started dating in 2005. For many years, it was believed the two had tied the knot all the way back in 2007, as they’d often referred to each other as husband and wife. However, it wasn’t until October of 2017 that they revealed online they’d officially sealed the deal. Their daughter was born in 2007, while their son was born in 2008. Momoa is also a step-father to Bonet’s adult daughter, Zoe Kravitz, whose father is musician Lenny Kravtiz.
Momoa went on to describe the bike as a “family heirloom,” explaining that this wasn’t something he was able to do in his childhood since he grew up without a father. “It’s something that’s very dear for me. And just being able to do that with my children,” he explained. “I was from a single mother who taught me many, many, many things but I didn’t grow up with a father-figure who I was wrenching on cars with.”

The Aquaman star added that his son will inherit the Harley, while his daughter has already been promised his other motorcycle, Mabel, which he named after his grandmother. “Those are the heirlooms,” he continued. “All I have is being at home and being a papa. I don’t want them to know me as my job. I just wanted to build a Harley with my kids.” We’re sure his children will always look fondly back at this experience!
