Check out Brad Pitt's latest special

Shinya Kimura builds Hollywood star a whacky Ducati-engined special

CALIFORNIAN-BASED custom bike builder Shinya Kimura has put together a retro Ducati-engined cafe racer for Hollywood legend and self-confessed motorcycle nut Brad Pitt.

The talented Japanese craftsman has built a series of super-cool one-offs for a variety of celebrities; this particular machine, dubbed 'Flash', is the latest confection ordered by Pitt from Kimura's workshop.

Check the positioning of the oil cooler, mounted right next to the headlight.

Whacky, stylish and very different. We love it.
