Bling Bling Bicycle?

Queen had it all right when they sang "I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike!" in their hit tune "Bicycle Race" - but they must have been envisioning the gold encrusted bling-cycle from Aurumania!

A 24-carat gold bike with Swarovski crystal encrusted from Aurumania is a limited edition of ten, and features opulent additions like a high quality leather Brooks saddle, leather hand-sewn grips and a ten-year warranty. Delivered via White Glove Service anywhere in the world for just €80,000.

These 10 limited-edition bikes represent a cornucopia of delights for any connoisseur . The designers have employed all the classic principles in their overall appearance, and every detail has been under careful consideration. Each bike is hand-built, and then plated with 24-carat gold and generously adorned with more than 600 fine Swarovski crystals. The handlebar grips are made of hand-sewn, chocolate-brown leather, and a moulded Brooks leather saddle provides exactly the right nostalgic touch.

To ensure potential buyers the greatest possible degree of discretion, these gold bikes are exclusively available via the corporate site. They are delivered to the buyer personally using a White Glove Service, in a specially designed packaging that exudes extreme luxury on a par with the golden bike inside.

The first bike in the series has already been sold to a customer in London – a man who wants it to decorate one of the walls in his home. AURUMANIA therefore also designed a special mount for this bike – also made of 24-carat gold, of course. The bike will then be on display, as a work of art in itself.

The brains behind this exclusive gold bike is the Scandinavian design company AURUMANIA. They work solely with the design of visibly extravagant luxury products made using gold, for an exclusive clientele who cannot get enough of this precious metal that really keeps its value. Hence the company name – AURUMANIA also means “pre-occupied with gold”, in the most positive sense imaginable.
