The back-story: this limited edition track bike is by Aurumania, a Scandinavian design company who uses gold on functional items to create an exquisite, ethereal effect. This is their first product. One of ten has already sold. Really. More story at biketype.com.
So if you have a spare 80,000 Euros, go for it. With the Euro's current exchange rate and lagging U.S. economy, who knows...investing in gold and crystals might be the next best thing.
