Veloboo Gold: A gold-plated bicycle not for the ordinary rider

Veloboo Gold is a gold plated bicycle

Gold-plated bicycle made from bamboo frame

We have seen many gold-plated cars and gadgets in the past, but a gold-plated bicycle, now that is something unique. Veloboo Gold is a limited edition bicycle draped in gold from side to side and made from frame of bamboo which is a totally insane combination. The gold-plated bicycle carries a hefty price tag of 27 grands and is most definitely not for the ordinary. Frame of the bicycle is made surprisingly from bamboo colored in matte surface which has vibration soaking properties, as well as internal strength just like aluminum.

Veloboo is only going to produce 30 of these gold-plated bicycles that’ll have exclusive hand-crafted premium leather on the handlebar and seat top. The bicycle has puncture proof tires and a 10 gear transmission to conquer even the steepest of trails. Only things that are not gold-plated in this bicycle are the Fulcrum Racing wheels, Campagnolo brakes, bicycle chain, Selle Italia saddle and 10 speed shifter.

Overall, the bicycle looks quite well designed, and whether or not it will survive the onslaught of dirt roads is only a question that will be answered in time. First and foremost, £27,000 price tag is quite hefty even for the most lavish buyers. Perhaps a passionate, rich and avid spender would be ready to give away that much of amount for this exclusive piece of automotive art.
