                                                   brad-pitt-bikeOne of the motorcycle crafted back in World War II-era produced by the German company BMW is now owned by Brad Pitt.

Brad Pitt has splashed out $385,000 on a rare World War II Nazi motorbike.

The movie star treated himself to the three-wheeled German bike that was used for reconnaissance missions in Greece.

The actor, 51, has become obsessed collecting wartime relics after starring in blockbusters “Inglourious Basterds” and “Fury,” 

The star’s new bike was used to travel through mountain ranges and across deserts on missions in the Greek island of Crete.

When Nazi soldiers fled Crete in 1945, the bike was sold in a local auction to a bike collector in Athens, before being bought 20 years ago by a local collector called Yannis.

“It’s a way for wealthy people to invest their money and also enjoy their hobby,” he said.

Yannis notes that these bikes are like “collector’s pieces,” since there are only around 500 remaining.

“Even the parts are expensive if they are original. I had to replace a small piece of metal on this bike and it cost me $2,300.”

Isn’t worth presenting this beautiful machine to yourself?
