"After John Teller’s accident, his Panhead sat in the garage under tarps for a few years, untouched, a mangled up mass of steel. Jax was just a teenager when his father died, and had a tough time accepting his dad being gone so Gemma let the bike sit in the garage so he could feel closer to JT. Opie, being Jax’s best friend, encouraged him to rebuild the bike. He helped him find the Panhead’s manual and parts and they’d work on it whenever they could, bonding over their love for motorcycles and aspirations of one day becoming Sons. The rebuild helped Jax mourn the loss of his dad and pulled him out of the dark. It took them three years, but when they finally finished, the Panhead looked better than new. That same day, Jax decided to pick up the prospect patch in his father’s memory."
