Brad Pitt Broke Down

It’s 9 PM. Still at the shop listing the parts missing to finish on time a Bobber for Daytona Biketoberfest. Phone rings. A girl named Debra is on the phone asking me if I can identify any bike in less than 5 minutes. Huh, huh. Ask me to look right away at my email. I see 3 pictures of a guy front of his broken down bike. She screams at me: "Do you know? Do you know? Me: "The guy?" She says "No. It’s Brad Pitt. Tell me what bike he rides". With-out-he-si-ta-tion, I tell her. She says "How do you know?". I tell her "Why would you call me?". She asks "Why did he broke down?". I look again at the pictures, certain I will never be able to answer this one. I see oil all over the pavement. I tell her (so bright, I am) "The bike leaks a lot of oil". She says: "you are so smart, thank you, thank you so much". "But who are you?" I ask again. I work for celebrity magazine xxxxxxxxx (it sounds like gossip). We go to press in 1 hour. I needed the legend for the pictures. To all celebrities, I give this advice: riding a crapy bike and wearing a full face helmet will never protect you from tabloids.

    Brad should have been riding “Chrome Magnum” instead. It’s a bike Alan Lee of Brussels, Belgium built for him, and is shown in Tom Zimberoff’s Art of the Chopper Book I and Book II.

    I agree.

  3. 3 Steven Aaron White Oct 14th, 2006 at 1:38 pm

    Cyril sent me this, I wasn’t familar with the bike.
    I am only a few years in the biz, I think little troubles are part of the biz when you ride true custom. Well maybe not Cyril’s rides but I find there is always a hiccup now and then.

    I think these are the guys that built this bike, place out of Iowa.

  5. 5 tako SICKASSO CYCLES Oct 17th, 2006 at 8:16 pm

    CUSTOMERS BEWARE- that bike was built by BOB PHILLIPS the so called wizard, he originally came from the BUFFALO,or RODCHESTER area had to leave because he was arrested for grand theft then turned rat and moved to sunny south florida, were he opened BOB PHILLIPS CUSTOM, then proceeded to fuck everyone down here. hiding behind the protection of being an informant. i know because he had called the task force on me, when i recovered varius customers bikes which may i add about 5 of them were in complete pieces, one which was totalled by an insurance company and has filed judjment on him personally. he then moved to ARIZONA and started his fucking of customers all over. by the way SCUMBAG (BOB PHILLIPS) the wizard, you can only file suit for slander only if what is said is not true. in youre case SCUMBAG i will be more than happy to verify and back up what i am saying. so do another line, pop another oxycotton, take another hit off that pipe. ita a shame because at one point there was some tallent there WHAT A WASTE of human life. its amazing BRAD PITT only broke down and fortunatly for him didnt die or cripple himself on that piece of shit

    Thanks for the clarification, come to think of it, I’m sure he’s got a few cycles. This may not have been the Church of Choppers ride.

  7. 7 church of choppers Nov 9th, 2006 at 2:12 am

    Church of Choppers built the bike. Its a one man shop in Des Moines, Iowa.
    I have no idea what happend with the bike.
    He had owned it for a while…
    They called and said ‘He loved the bike’, so ‘what the fuck?’

  8. 8 church of choppers Nov 9th, 2006 at 2:20 am

    and come to think of it why the ‘crappy’ comment….you dont have a fucking clue about that deal or that bike.

  9. 9 coonass Jun 6th, 2007 at 4:14 pm

    Bob is now living in moron city La. where he continues to fuck everyone over here, thanks for the info on this asshole

  10. 10 coonass Jun 6th, 2007 at 4:15 pm

    Thats Morgan City

  11. 11 another coonass Jun 7th, 2007 at 12:38 pm

    If anybody needs to find that loser Bob Phillips just ask and we’ll see to it that his phone numbers and address are posted.

    If anybody is interested Bob is no longer fucking over people’s bikes, he’s welding garbage baskets that get used offshore. He’s still in Morgan City but I hear he has been evicted from yet another rent house. I just feel sorry for all the local guys that he screwed over; he shouldn’t be allowed to wrench on bikes

  12. 12 billyT Aug 30th, 2007 at 12:12 am

    It WAS built by church of choppers in Iowa. Jeff Wright is the guys name, he is a Sinner, and builds righteous old school choppers. The bike is called “The Beanpicker” and Brad Pitt has no fucking business riding it. I can’t imagine why Jeff even sold it to him. The bike prolly saw it was brad and just threw in the towel.

  13. 13 Mike Dennis Sep 15th, 2007 at 3:16 pm

    I don’t know who is Coonass, but I heard only bad things about B. Phillip who has a terrible reputation. (See comments above) Regarding his bikes, never saw any. Did he finish any?

  14. 14 Cyril Huze Sep 15th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    On this site, today September 15, Bob & Melina Phillip have sent a total of 7 comments (under other names and other email addresses than their usual one) where they compliment Bob Phillip (himself) about his own work, advertise his work, etc. Then Bob signed a last post under his name and real email address where he states that he received immediate calls of support as soon as these "positive" comments were posted. He also thank everybody for the nice comments written about him (and that they wrote together under other names & email addresses). Unfortunately for both of them, we traced all these posts (the fake positive comments and the comment signed Bob Phillip) as coming from the same computer IP address (kind of fingerprint of the computer).The only computer used for all the posts is located in Franklin, Louisiana. After denying and insulting me here and on other sites  for removing these fake positive comments, Melina Phillip admitted by direct email to me that all these comments were, in fact, sent from the same computer!!! I also requested that they provide a telephone bill dated September 15 showing all the incoming calls of support that Bob Phillip pretend to have received this same day after publication of fake positive compliments in my Blog. Of course, they refuse because there were none. We just informed Bob & Melina Phillip in Louisiana that we were aware of these fraudulent tactics, that it is unacceptable, and that we will publish these actions here in this Blog. We keep all digital files and computer forensic evidence regarding these fraudulent maneuvers. End of the story

    I would just like to say that my husband and I feel the same way as anyone that has had any type of business with Bob Phillips or Wizard, what ever he call his self. We had meet him in Cave Creek, Az at a biker activitie. He showed us his custom motorcycles that he so call claim to of built and I even have a picture of sitting on one. We are from another state and was visiting friends for a few months since we are retierd. My husband had bought me a 1945 Harley that only needed the transmition put together (which also had all new parts) as we we’re putting together the transmition, we had notice that there was a crack in the case. So we took the case with us to Arizona, just in case we found someone that could specialize welding on this 1945 transmition case . To make a long story short. When we meet this Bob********########, my husband was invited to his shop after we told him about the crack transmition case to show us some of his welding work. We decided to let him do it. He said he would have it ready in about 4 or 5 days. By the 6th day we try to call him, no anwser, finally we got in touch with him and we told him we will be leaving for home in a couple of weeks. He reply that he was in Louiiana helping a friend build a bike and that he would be back to Az in 1 week. My husband had a funny feeling and went to his shop a few days later and he still had all his equipment in the shop, but no one was around. So he went back a couple of days later and the shop was empty out. He never return our phone calls. We left Az around the end of July 2006 and to this date we have not received or got my transmition case to my 1945 back. He stoled the transmition case to my motorcycle and there was several wittness to the discussion of him saying that he could weld my transmition case. I do have his last cell phone number, I know as of around Sept 2006 it was still working and taking message but he was not returning them. So if anyone run across him and he has a 1945 transmition case please get in touch with us

    Interesting how there is all this contoversy about the guy that someone is slamming above when that guy has NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT BIKE AT ALL.

    The bike WAS built by Jeff Wright of Church of Chopperrs, Jeffs bikes are killer rides.

    Crappy bike? I think not, Brad Pitt shouldn’t be on a bike like that. He bought that bike from a picture and just rode it off without any explanation of the fact that that bike should be ridden by someone who actually understands how it was set up.

    Jeff’s bikes are top notch, period.

    As will his S&S 50th Anniversary build will be.


  19. 19 Dream May 20th, 2008 at 12:44 pm

    I seriously considered buying that bike when it was on Ebay. I heard Brad purchased it. At least we know he has good taste in bikes… and women apparently!

    Sucks when your broken down though. Hope he wuz up to speed on how that custom worked.

  20. 20 phil poisson Jun 9th, 2008 at 10:32 pm

    bob phillips sucks shit, my name is Phil from Phfilthy Frames and Powder and I just want everyone to know that the frame bob phillips is claiming to be his design is a fuckin bald face lie. It doe’s in fact come from Canada but has nothing to do with that asshole bob phillips. My company designed and built that frame and I have all the research and development paper’s to prove it. My sales rep took a call a couple years ago from an ass hole name bob phillips that claimed to be building a bike for Brad Pitt and liked our frame, we donated that frame to that ass hole, he never came to our shop, never had any input or anything to do with frame design or the the building of it. Dave Cody from Montreal Canada was head of R&D at Phfilthy Frames & Powder and head of that project with some input from Barry White and myself. To many night’s and long hour’s on that frame to let some dickhead that think’s he’s bike builder to come along and try to claim someone else’s hard work and money. To top it off we gave that frame to that punk because it was for Brad Pitt. And that loser build’s an ugly bike to boot. You want to come to Canada punkass bob phillip’s, I would personally give you the grand tour, you ass hole bob phillip’s. The bike is in July Easyrider 2008 and it’s ugly.

  21. 21 Rick Riley Oct 4th, 2008 at 1:45 pm

    I googled Bob Phillip just to find out where he was and this website came up. While I’m late, I’d just like to add, that while Bob was in Florida I paid him $4,000 to change the rear end of my softail from a 200 tire to a 250 tire. Bob’s mom died and he told me his wife got cancer. He said we would be moving to Arizona and since he had already sawed the rear end of the bike off, asked me if he could take it to Arizona, where he would open up a new shop, and finish the bike. Coincidentally, I was moving from Fla. to California, so I said yes and I would pick it up out there. Two years went by as Bob would call and tell me all his problems but he was making progress and the bike was looking great. I didn’t drive to Arizona to check on it because I was taking care of and invalid mother 24/7, but believed Bob and kept hoping he would finish it so I could make arrangements to have it shipped. I finally got a call from his sister-in-law saying that Bob had abandoned the shop and I needed to pick up my bike. When I arrived, the bik was in boxes, parts were missing, everything was ruined and Bob had not done one thing to it.

    When I originally finished the bike it was appraised for $65,000. Completely hand fabricated and won the first two shows that I entered. When I recovered if from Bob, it was a total loss and two years later I’ve spent another $15,000 and am still trying to rebuild it.

    By the way, his sister in law told me that Bob’s wife never had cancer and was shocked to he had been telling me so. Bob, apparently, is a compulsive liar. Just thought you’d like to know

  22. 22 Donnie Pizza Dec 30th, 2008 at 2:11 am

    Sucks that God gave talent to such a dick. I’d like to be the first to bust Bob Phillip’s jaw when he returns to SoFla. But I’ll have to get to him before Neil, Tako, Sal, Shannon, Barry S., Tony M., Ant, Dennis, Gary C, Rick (see above), Tom W., Sarge, Gil, Shovelhead George, Scotty, Carbureator Dave, Tom B.& Tom S., Geno, Smiley, and a slew of others. Also, this piece of shit is a bonefide RAT for the cops AND Feds. He puts decoy bikes in his shop for law enforcement agencies.

  23. 23 Looking for Bob Phillips Mar 4th, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    I am trying to locate Bob Phillips. Can anyone help? Without going into too much detail, lets just say he has a bike that doesn’t belong to him – simialr to some of the above described situations. Several people posted that they have his contact info, address, shop location. If so I could use it and any other info that could help locate him to be able to go after him. If you do not want to post it, you can email me more directly at


  24. 24 David Jul 6th, 2009 at 9:53 am

    What type of aircleaner is on that bike? I have been trying to find a black one for my bike for a couple of years.

  25. 25 Bobs son Dec 6th, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    hey guys, i’m sorry for everything hes done. we are no longer talking, but he does have a lieing problem. hes a great builder, but just cant say no. i am very sad about this whole thread, you guys were so nice to me when i was around and i thank you. to make it clear. he was never a rat. he was a drug addict. thats why everything turned out this way. once again i am sorry for all your losses.

  26. 26 Bobs Colon Feb 16th, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    I am choosing to remain nameless but I too was screwed over by the “wizard” Bob Phillips. Tako can hopefully vouch for me because when Bob was too scared to pick up my evo motor from Red Racing in Boca after they fired him, He had Tako do his dirty work. I personally thanked Tako for doing this for me the one and only time I met him. Anyways Bob talked me into letting him finish my bike when to this day I just wished I let Red Racing do it. Countless years and I stopped counting how much money later it still was not finished. By the grace of god one of Bobs employees called me up and told me to just come get my bike and the box of parts. The thought to do this made me sick knowing how much money I had invested with Bob to finish it, but something told me to just go get it. I did and had a really cool shop called Corrupted Concepts in Melbourne Florida really help me out and finished the bike in no time. Bob was gone out of Margate Florida not two weeks after I went down and got my bike. Thank you Bobs employee wherever you are!! Yes Bob is a scumbag thief, I wouldnt hesitate to tell anyone that and warn them to stay the hell away from him! But he is one hell of a fabricator, that I cant take from him unfortunately. With all this said I do hope he ends up with colon cancer just for the piece of mind that a doctor out there somewhere is f*&king his ass on a regular basis just like he did to me. F&%k You Bob Phillips Rot in HELL!!

  27. 27 shit Apr 26th, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Brad pitt has great taste in bikes, and this one is a beauty.. bikes break down, its a fact.. who the fuck hasnt broken down.

  28. 28 Hiram Keaffaber May 9th, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    Do not believe the rumors saying Angelina gave Brad Pitt an ultimatum to get hitched by June. They are surely a loving pair and everybody is able to see that.

  29. 29 williedough May 22nd, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Wow!, this Bob Phillips is a real scum bag.Karma will get him.

  30. 30 Heron bay boy Jul 20th, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Wow… This is too much. I lived next door to this guy in coconut creek, Florida. He held himself as a great bike build and he did have a few at his house that were pretty darn nice. However, I pegged him as a bullshitter pretty early on.. I also heard when he moved there were some very unhappy people coming by to see him…

  31. 31 Mellisa Riola Jul 26th, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    Brad Pitt’s film being filmed in Oakland needs extras if anyone is interested!

  32. 32 Katherina Delbo Sep 3rd, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I am so proud of all the assistance that Brad Pitt has given to the hurricane Katrina victims in New Orleans. The homes that he has had put up in New Orleans are really superb.

  33. 33 Broken Spoke Mar 21st, 2011 at 2:42 am

    I spoke with Bob Phillips tonight about helping me with my build, then went to another brothers house and was talking about the talk bob and I had tonight. We looked on the web and I found out all this fucked up shit that bob has done all over the country. Fuck!!!! I almost tucked up bad. So how long ago was all this.

    Someone shoot me a line and give me an update.

  34. 34 Broken Spoke Mar 21st, 2011 at 5:45 am

    i spoke with this dude Bob Phillips last night about helping me with a build. After I spoke with Bob I went to a brothers house and we were talking about the build and decided to look up Bop Phillips. DAMN what is up with dude. Some one respond back that had some dealings. I went to his place last night and do not want to be dealing with some thief.

  35. 35 southernrider Aug 26th, 2011 at 1:09 am

    By the way i was one of the people that posted positive feedback…. from MY computer …and after all that is said, maybe one day we all can be as great as some of you ”winners” that posted on here
