24K Gold Racing Bike Costs Rolls-Royce Wraith Money

While this bicycle may not reach the speed of light, the artisans at Goldgenie believe in catching the light as you travel”. This is how the eccentric London-based luxury workshop markets its newest creation, a British racing bicycle they completely covered in 24 karat gold. The company is obviously addressing to the well-healed among us, but still they went quite far with this one. Goldgenie’s specialists meticulously applied a lustrous layer of 24k gold to the bike’s entire structure, from the tip of the drop handlebars to the wheel stays and every other part in between. Imagine that every ridge of the gear chain was carefully handled and turned into a truly shiny piece of art. The eccentric craftsmen claim the gleaming gold model is offset with sophisticated accents in black in a limited edition soft San Marco suede saddle and SR4 racing tires. Still, this bicycle is not about performance, but rather about outshining any gift a person could possibly wish for, no matter how wealthy he or she might be. And it’s not just gold that makes this masterpiece of opulence surprise any person looking at it, since the £250,000 ($393,000) is also adorned with diamonds. Exotic skins, fine leathers and precious stones on future models

What, gold is too bright for your noble eyes? Don’t you worry, Goldgenie has already thought about that. Their designers are currently developing more two-wheeled pieces that clients can bespoke from a selection of different finishes on the saddle and handlebars, including exotic skins and fine leathers and a variety of precious stones.

Even though it’s not the first time we learn about a golden bicycle that expensive (House of Solid Gold created one that is priced at $1 million), we still can’t help but wonder what an evening ride with this two-wheeler would be like. Not safe, to say the least.
