Million Dollar Motorcycle
« on: February 27, 2014, 06:54:40 PM »
So, we've all heard Harleys described as "butt jewelry" for yuppies. Now there's a company that's planning to take that over the top and produce a bike worth over $1,000,000.

Here's an $850,000 bike they've already sold. It got to that price by plating it in 24k gold and sprinkling it with diamonds that add up to 7 carats.

Personally, I'd rather have the Lotus.    ;)

Back when Bugatti Verons were selling for $1 Million (~ $1.5 Million now?) you at least got something substantial for your spent $1 Million.  Bugatti lost money on each car sold. 

This bike is gaudy jewelry and nothing else.

Oh, but you know when it turns owners two or three times, the C/L ad will have the word "invested" in it!

Brough Superior ss100. Better bike, less bling, slightly cheaper
