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. ■
