Got a spare million dollars that’s burning a whole in your pocket? Before you go out and waste your money on a new house or fancy car, have you considered a new bicycle? A sensible option perhaps, but don’t expect any change – this one’s made from solid gold.

Available now from the extravagantly titled The House of Solid Gold, there are just 13 of these available, meaning you better snap one up quick – they’re likely to go like hot cakes. Of course, you could also buy the lot for just $13 million and then ride them proudly around town with a fleet of your best friends – just make sure you set aside enough cash for a decent D-lock.

Back to the bicycle, though. The frame is made from pure 24K gold, while the customised seat is covered in the finest “chocolate brown alligator”. The custom emblem bearing The House of Solid Gold logo, “THSG”, is embellished and encrusted with over 600 Black Diamonds (6.0 carats in total) and 500 Golden Sapphires (4.5 carats in total). The water bottle is also covered in gold and accented with chocolate brown stingray. It’s weight isn’t mentioned, funnily enough.
