Probably the world's most valuable bike.

The aurumania gold bike crystal edition(EUR 80,000; about $102,418) is hand built, plated with 24 carat gold and hand-adorned with more than 600 Swarovski crystals. Limited to ten, the crystal and gold bike was created by a company named Aurumania, whose self-proclaimed purpose is to conceive of and design items with the extravagant use of gold, thereby turning familiar objects into collectible art. Kind of the Midas Touch concept. Their collection thus far consists of fifty 24 karat gold plated bikes, a gold plated bike rack and the special Swarovski crystal adorned 24 karat plated version. As one would expect for these prices, their products are hand delivered anywhere in the world. The handlebar grips are made of hand-sewn, chocolate-brown leather and a moulded Brooks leather saddle provides the right nostalgic touch. You don't like the crystals or EUR 80,000 is expensive to you! They've made 50 of the gold plated bikes(EUR 21,000) without the Swarovski Crystal adornments. They have the leather Brooks saddle and hand sewn leather handles too.

You must admit, when Swarovski collaborates on a project, they don't do anything by halves.
