World’s Most Expensive Bike Costs $1 Million and Is Overlaid in 24k Pure Gold

The two-wheeler was made by the exclusivist House of Solid Gold, a luxury company created and developed by designer Hugh Power. Named The Beverly Hills Edition, the manufacturer will only produce 13 of these fat bikes dressed-in 24k pure gold.

Ever asked yourself the “what would you do with one million dollars” question while you were trying to fall a sleep in your Ikea bed? If the answer is yes, then you probably want to know that there are some people out there that actually take this matter seriously. And one of them is this luxury company producing the world’s most opulent wacky items.

It's also the case of this extreme mountain bike designed in collaboration with the ultra athlete Dan Bull, the same biker that founded “Iditabike,” the insanely extreme race through Alaska in the winter. According to its creators, this exclusive bike takes around 750 hours to be handcrafted and overlaid with pure 24k gold. Each of the 13 units to be built will be totally customized and made to the buyers wants and needs.

Oh, besides the gold, this one million dollar (EUR 730,000) bike will also come with the company’s emblem, made out of 600 black diamonds and 500 golden sapphires. As to the seat, it’s covered in the finest chocolate brown alligator skin. As a matter of fact, even the water bottle is covered in gold and accented with chocolate brown stingray.

The money goes to charity

Furthermore, each owner will get his luxury mountain bike laser engraved with an artist signature, dated and numbered and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Besides the technical specifications of the bike, we’ll have to tell you one more thing. It might seem a bit crazy to pay the same amount of money a brand new McLaren P1 would cost you, just to buy a gold-plated bicycle. But know this: most of it goes to charity.

According to the manufacturer, 90% of the money that proceeds from the sale of the collection will be donated to The Way to Happiness Foundation International, a global non-profit, non-religious charitable organization whose sole mission is to “reverse the moral decay of society by restoring trust and honesty the world over through the publication and widespread distribution of the booklet.”

Well, charity or not, we still can stop wondering what would happen if the owner of one of these bikes would fall down with it and scratch the gold off the metal. Any suggestions?
