$500,000 Gold Plated Chopper

Discussion in 'Trucks and Motorcycles' started by matfitz, Jul 7, 2008.

  1. take a look at this gold-plated custom chopper that is estimated to carry a maddening tag of $500,000! Exhibited at an International Motocycle show in Seattle, this ornamented two- wheeler is more a piece of art than an actual vehicle. If you are wondering that why would some one want to ride it…..then lemme ask, Why not? If you’ve got loads of cash dumped in banks in every corner of the world then who can stop you from splurging. Roll over and let the images do their bit of talking……

    One thing is for sure, this festooned chopper isn’t something that you would get to see everyday! At least not with a red velvet seat<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  2. That begins to be up there with what the Aztecs did with gold.
     
  3. im actually kind of fond of it, the design more than the gold though

    Good guess, but it's not on their website, so apparently not. Definitely check out www.martinbrosbikes.com if you like this sled.
     
  5. $500K? Ha, that is funny. Worth closer to $50K, maybe.
     
  6. aside from the tackyness of a gold bike, i like the design of that front end
     
  7. Pretty ridiculous....I wouldn't pay it....
     
  8. Is this the most expensive chopper ever?
     
  9. I think its a Yamaha powered bike done by bmschoppers in Florida.
     
  10. That would be a difficult claim to make. Do you base it on the cost to build it, or the purchase price? If it is solely on cost to build, hell, make a million dollar bike covered in diamonds...but don't ever expect to get even a quarter of it back when you sell it.

    Custom bikes are notoriously difficult to sell.
