Mountain bikes are typically bought by those who like to go riding over some of the most extreme terrains, through snow, rain and mud. But would you pay out a cool $1 million to do that on this bike? Unlike the majority of bikes which are built to withstand the rigours of harsh terrain riding, this one has been designed in gold. It is said to be the most expensive bike in the world according to those who built it, The House of Solid Gold.

This functional piece of art is said to be one of a kind and has been given the name of The Beverley Hills Edition. It is also called the “fat bike”. The bike has been handcrafted and is overlaid with pure 24k gold. Every single part of this mountain has been coated perfectly thanks to the electroplating process and The House of Gold said that it took more than 750 hours to complete. There are going to be just 13 of these mountain bikes made and offered around the world and each one is going to be tailored to the specific requirements of the customer.
