Your Next Ride: A 24-Karat Gold Bike?

Sep 9, 2010
Outside Magazine

If you're looking for a little more flash or bling in your next ride, don't miss the 24-karat gold plated folding Brompton S2L, which was listed on eBay yesterday.

The bike also sports a pool-ball stickshift, stop-cock hinge clamps, skateboard wheels for rollers (when folded), and a Brooks saddle, the (U.K.) Guardian reports.

"The bike didn't feel quite right before," current owner Sean O'Dell said about some of the modifications. "It does now. It deserved to be fully functional."

The "Buy It Now" price on eBay is £1,999 (US$3,087).
