If this classic and elegant picnic basket meets your expectations, you must wait twelve months to buy one. Each piece has been entrusted to the hands of experienced artisans and craftsmen who use fine leathers and metals in their manufacture. The different models cost around US $37,000.
But the maximum expression of glamour on two wheels may be the exclusive Gold Bike Crystal Edition by the Scandinavian design firm Aurumania: a handmade bicycle plated with 24K gold and generously decorated with over 600 Swarovski crystals.
This bike is a true work of art on wheels. Made of the finest leather, the comfortable Brooks saddle and the handlebar grips are handmade. With a price of approximately US $103,000, the Gold Bike Crystal Edition is not only the world’s most expensive bike: being a limited edition of only 10 copies, this extravagant bicycle is a true collector’s item. ■
