This is What a $1 Million Bike Looks Like
Here’s the perfect gift for the ultimate douchebag in your life. It’s the $1 million bike.
Can you even ride it? Well, of course. That is, if you don’t mind getting all of that gold and those jewels a little scuffed up. I mean, it’s an extreme mountain bike. Extreme mountain biking is the perfect setting for precious metals and stones, isn’t it?
Named the “The Beverly Hills Edition”, this extreme mountain bike, also known as a “fat bike”, is handcrafted and overlaid with pure 24K gold. Using modern day techniques and taking well over 750 hours to complete, each part was coated to perfection in the USA using the electroplating process. The House of Solid Gold will create only 13 gold extreme bikes for the world market, each one being totally customized and made to the buyers wants and needs. Added for accent and beauty, the diamonds and sapphires are pave’ set on the frame emblem. To be more specific, the custom emblem bearing The House of Solid Gold logo, “THSG” is embellished and encrusted with over 600 Black Diamonds (6.0 carats in total) and 500 Golden Sapphires (4.5 carats in total). The one of a kind customized seat is covered in the finest chocolate brown alligator and absolutely beautiful. The one of a kind water bottle is covered in gold and accented with chocolate brown stingray. Finally, the bike is laser engraved with artist signature, dated and numbered as the 1st of 13 and is accompanied with a certificate of authenticity.
Oh, forgot to mention. They killed two animals to make this too!
Oddly, the majority of the proceeds from sales of these bikes will go to some weirdo charity called The Way to Happiness Foundation International. It is described as a 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 Way to Happiness” booklet.
Boy, does that sound like a cult. And if it isn’t a cult, we’ve got a million dollars that says it’s a tax shelter.
