With the rise in popularity of bicycles nowadays, more and more vehicle companies strive to step up their game in designing trendier and smarter bikes. Williamson Goods and Supply Co., however, went up and beyond the norm and tradition to create a one-of-a-kind bicycle that is more worthy of a porcelain floor than an asphalt road.
In collaboration with the Detroit Bicycle Company, the luxury sports equipment brand created a shiny copper-plated bicycle made entirely by hand. The Wheelmen bicycle is also built with a five-speed hub, Paul Components cranks, and a luxurious-looking saddle and grips sewn entirely in 100% CITES-certified crocodile skin made to look like a python’s.
This means that the skin was harvested in a controlled, humane process. The whole frame of the bicycle makes it look like it came out of a classic, long-forgotten era – a characteristic that further adds to its alluring charisma.
