It looks like even Hollywood Superstars are not immune to the lure of well-crafted American Iron. The paparazzi recently caught Brad Pitt out for a cruise aboard the one-off steed pictured above. Mr Pitt is no stranger to the health benefits of a good right-wrist exercise regiment – he's been spotted cruising the left coast on several different cycles, including a full range of Ducatis as well as customs from Confederate.

So what exactly is Brad's latest mount? If you notice the matching 21-inch Roland Sands Design wheels front and rear, this setup has become a trademark of designer Jesse Rooke. The California-based custom builder has been churning out some truly unique creations since his debut in 2002, as well as lending his designs to other manufactures like Swift Motorcycles.

One look at a Rooke Ride and it becomes apparent that his inspirations come from far beyond the traditional boundaries of an ever-struggling custom scene. This goes to show that cool is cool, no matter what package it's served in. Now, if we could just get a leg over one of "the other Jesse's" bikes in the near future... We hear they really do carve. Imagine that, a custom that corners. Who says choppers are dead?

      Talk about having the world on a string, how can anyone do much better than Brad? Still young and great-looking, a talented actor, unbelievably beautiful wife and what looks like a wonderful bunch of kids. If only he's smart enough to appreciate what he has, and not let another woman turn his head like some other guys have done!

      That rigid frame would beat you to death...unless those Cali roads are really smooth.

      Where are the pedals? I thought it was a hybrid? Seems thats the trend now a days.

      Solo saddle, hacked rear fender, no front fender. It's not a chopper, it's a bobber.

      I like it. Jesse Rooke (Rooke Customs) builds some sick bikes.

      I'm not feeling this bike. The is low like a chopper but the pegs are under his ass like a street bike. The frame and engine are also of the chopper variety but the tire widths and rake are more like a street bike. Its like this bike doesn't know what it wants to be. I dunno, looks... off.

        Actually it is more of a custom in the 'bobber" style and not a chopper. I am not a fan of the Roland Sands wheels but everything else is pretty slick. I would prefer more traditional laced wheels (chrome spokes, black rims and hubs, maybe some white walls). Not enough rubber in the back, looks like an old board racer.

      does look cramped, but that's the style of bike it is i suppose. I like it. At least he's wearing proper gear, good to see he has some sense.

        I'll second that. Nice to see a celebrity wearing the protective gear. Probably helps avoid the paparazzi (though not completely, obviously).

      I like it. Much better than some bikes he has been seen on, and he did not dump this one! Yeah, I am jealous.

      "A good right-wrist exercise regiment"?
