Hollywood stars and other wealthy icons are typically seen in collector cars or other high-end, vintage rides, and it’s easy to understand why—the appeal of classic cars is plain to see. However, some have a different taste in automobiles and prefer a more open-air, adrenaline-pumping mode of transportation: motorcycles. Whether they have a massive collection, extremely rare bikes or even their very own motorcycle company, these celebrities are some of the most passionate motorcycle collectors around.
The Hollywood star known for his roles in World War Z, Fight Club, Ocean’s 11 and many more boasts an incredible collection of choppers suitable for such a legendary actor. From powerful racers to unique, vintage bikes, Pitt has an extensive motorcycle collection that’s as varied as his film roles.
Most notably, Pitt has been spotted on a customized bike from famed motorcycle designer Indian Larry. The one-of-a-kind Ecosse Titanium Series XX is worth a staggering $300,000, making it one of the most valuable motorcycles ever built. Pitt is also a fan of Ducati bikes, with both a Ducati Monster 696 and the rare Ducati Desmosedici RR in his collection.
Famous for his iconic and influential television presence, the former talk show host spends his time building an impressive collection of cars and motorcycles. Leno’s garage currently holds an astonishing 160 motorcycles (not to mention 181 cars) ranging from coveted Brough Superior superbikes to vintage, restored motorbikes that date back to 1939.
Located next to the Burbank Airport in Hollywood, Leno’s garage has continued to expand along with his collection. Despite being worth a fortune themselves, Leno says that his collection is just for fun. The motorcycles are constantly maintained and it’s reported that they all get their fair share of time on the road.
The Oscar-nominated superstar known for doing his own stunts is, unsurprisingly, an auto enthusiast with a number of impressively powerful bikes in his collection. Turning heads at red carpet events and on the silver screen, the actor has been seen riding ultra-limited motorcycles like the Ducati Desmosedici RR, of which there are only 1,500 worldwide.
Cruise satisfies his need for speed with some pricey motorcycles—his $100,000 Vyrus 987 C3 4V is capable of hitting 200mph in seconds, and his BMW S1000 RR even made an appearance in Mission Impossible as Cruise’s getaway vehicle.
Building your own motorcycle collection?
Motorcycle collectors know how important it is to protect and maintain their bikes. If you’re purchasing a classic or antique motorcycle from out of state, or you’re shipping one from your collection to a new location, make sure you know how to ship a vintage motorcycle.
When she’s not selling out shows and performing chart-topping hits, the singer-songwriter collects and rides motorcycles, and even attends races. Pink is often seen cruising on her stylish Hinckley Triumph T100 Bonneville and Harley-Davidson Sportster XL Iron 883. She recently showed off her new, custom-built Indian Scout Bobber—a gift from her professional motorcycle racer husband Carey Hart.
Star of The Matrix, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and John Wick, Keanu Reeves went so far as to create his own motorcycle company to design customized bikes. Founded in 2011, ARCH Motorcycle began as a project between Reeves and motorcycle builder Gard Hollinger. Reeves and Hollinger started by modifying a Harley Davidson and eventually turned it into an entirely unique bike—the KRTG-1, which they describe as an “American performance cruiser.”
The duo launched ARCH as a manufacturer and have gone on to develop multiple models of their bikes.
While the Deadpool star isn’t often spotted in flashy cars like other celebrities, he has been seen on a number of rare, vintage and generally impressive motorcycles. Reynolds made waves when he was seen riding customized Triumph Thruxton motorcycles. The 1960 and ‘70s era models have been modified and updated to fit his specifications.
He’s also known for ordering a one-off Honda CB750 from Raccia Motorcycles. The bike, reminiscent of the first motorcycle that Reynolds learned to ride on, took seven months to build and has a unique construction that sets it apart from the standard-built Honda CB750s.
