London: Hollywood star Brad Pitt has reportedly bought a motorbike worth USD 37,000 for his friend, whose bike got destroyed in a house fire.

The 50-year-old actor hired a broker to search for a rare 1936 Harley-Davidson VLD motorcycle when he heard his friend`s bike was destroyed, suggest reports.

"The guy had several bikes, but this was his baby and because it wasn`t a street bike, he didn`t have it insured," a source said.
"Brad sprang into action, hiring a broker to search the world for a duplicate. When one was finally located in Germany, Brad wrote a cheque and had the boss machine delivered with a note that simply said he knew how much his buddy loved that bike, and just wanted to help out," the source added.
