Brad Pitt buys bike used for Nazi missions in Greece

Brad Pitt, a death rider, after splashing out $385,000 for the WWII bike

We hoped that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would buy themselves a private Greek island. Instead, Brad splurged $385,000 to buy himself a rare World War II Nazi motorbike linked to Greece. The three-wheeled German bike was used for reconnaissance missions in Greece.

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

The bike is a collector’s item as there are only 500 remaining in the world today.
