NY Daily News — Bruce Springsteen was far from racing in the street thanks to a faulty bike built by Billy Joel.

The Long Island Piano Man told his Madison Square Garden audience this week that he built Springsteen a motorcycle — but said it broke down on a New Jersey highway earlier this month.

“So he takes the bike out on Veteran’s Day and it breaks down. It’s all over national news: ‘Bruce’s Bike Breaks Down,” Joel told his audience, according to Consequence of Sound.

“So I’m reading this and thinking, ‘Oh s–t, I hope it wasn’t the bike I built for him.’ I called him, ‘Bruce, what bike was the bike that broke down?’ ‘It was the one you made for me,’” he continued.

Joel apologized to the “Racing in the Street” singer, to which Springsteen, 67, responded, “Oh no, it’s cool, dude.”

That same night, the “New York State of Mind” crooner paid tribute to his Jersey pal by covering his classic “Born to Run.”

Springsteen did in fact make headlines after his bike broke down as bikers from the Freehold American Legion picked up their hometown hero on the side of the road, bringing him to a local bar while he awaited a ride.

“Bruce was a very down to earth regular guy who fit right in with his fellow, not so famous, Freehold boys,” the group wrote on Facebook. “Bruce did take their names and telephone numbers, so maybe they’ll be riding together some day!”

This story is Bruce Springsteen in a nutshell. It has a motorcycle, New Jersey, the American Legion, a local bar and being a regular guy.

And now it turns out Billy freaking Joel built Springsteen a piece of crap motorcycle, he calls to apologize and Springsteen is completely cool with it. He’s just the greatest.

Even though that jacket Springsteen is wearing probably cost about $3,000 and Billy Joel built his motorcycle, he proves time and again he is still just a regular guy from Jersey.

Springsteen is a client at 20th Century Cycles, Joel’s motorcycle shop on Long Island, and it’s not clear if Joel actually built the motorcycle himself or if someone else did.

Either way, big winner here: Bruce. Huge loser: 20th Century Cycles. This is a very bad look for them.
