Despite Detroit’s long-standing reputation as the nation’s “murder capital”, it still has the capacity to turn-out bespoke bikes on its home soil. Moreover, you can even have one adorned in copper and wrapped in snake skin.
Indeed, the Detroit-based Williamson Goods is offering this vintage-esque cruiser bike called the Wheelman that’s bedecked in all-manner of copper and chrome plating, to include python skin wrapping and a crocodile skin saddle.
According to Williamson Goods, only 10 examples of each color way (black/copper, navy/copper, tan/copper and navy/chrome ) will be made, which will be available in both standard sizes, as well as requests for custom sizing.
You better have some serious sawbucks set aside, as each bike carries a whopping price tag of $35,000.
Also, unless you posses a bulletproof vest and plan on pack’in some heat, we suggest that you don’t carry cash when you go to purchase one.
