Spotted: Brad Pitt's new ride

Hollywood actor and self-confessed bike nut gets new hand-built machine

Brad Pitt's latest bespoke ride

THIS IS BRAD Pitt's latest machine - a one-off hand-built custom cruiser complete with Harley V-twin engine.

Pitt, who owns a string of classic and hand-built motorcycles, has opted for a pretty radical approach to his latest toy. An all-metal look (including the seat), a single-sided swingarm and a superfat rear tyre all give Brad's bike a seriously cool look.

Last month Visordown reported how another of Pitt's hand-built machines left the actor stranded as it failed to start, while the star was cruising the streets of LA. Pitt was rescued by a passing paparazzi, as a gaggle of photographers took advantage of the star's misfortune.

Let's hope this one's a little more reliable.

I usually like the look and the engineering that goes into these one off specials but from this picture the styling looks pretty crap.  I'd need to see a decent picture before making my mind up

Better than that s*itbox bobber he broke down on.

I like the fact he rides.

What he rides is none of my fucking business.

I wouldn't be taking the p*ss if I didn't care, stick . I'd like to think that he'd take it right back if he turned up at a meet or rally (or even decided to post on here). That bobber really was s*ite, though .

I honestly can’t say anything as I've owned some real shite in my younger days, Flo. Growing up we were poor and anything that had two wheels and a motor was in my eyes gorgeous. It took me two years to save up enough to purchase my first 150 quid motorcycle. When you’re poor things take on a different appearance and I suppose the same holds true if you are extremely wealthy like Brad Pitt.  I’m sure if I had half of Brad Pitt’s money I too could find some beauty in his motorcycles, just try me.

And me. 'Course, seeing that I ride a bog standard sports tourer I recon Brad might have a few come backs of his own? With his cash though, I'd like to think that my choice of stupidly expensive bikes would be more along the lines of Ewan MacGregors collection...but since I'm still brassic that'll stay as a daydream.
