Spotted: Brad Pitt's new ride

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

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.
