Decorated with 360 diamonds and a watch Harley-Davidson estimated at 1.8 million dollarsMay 11, 2018
Swiss customizer Bündnerbike built the world’s most expensive motorcycle, decorated with 360 diamonds and built-in gasoline clock, on the basis of the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S chopper. The cost is 1.8 million Swiss francs (about 1.79 million US dollars).
The bike is prepared in cooperation with the watch brand Bucherer and is called the Blue Edition. The project involved eight people from Bündnerbike and Harley-Davidson who spent a year developing and 2500 hours to build a motorcycle.
The bike has a unique blue color due to the six-layer coating applied over the silver-plated metal. The technology of application is kept secret.
Some details are gilded, and the gas tank decorates almost four hundred diamonds, among which there is even a stone for 5.4 carats. It is in a special removable case, covered with armored glass.
On the other side of the gas tank there is another similar safe. There are special watches of Carl F. Bucherer brand, specially prepared for this project. This same case acts as a wunderer, answering for the winding of the clock.
Earlier it became known that the world’s first superbike – Vincent Black Lightning – was sold for 929 thousand dollars. A total of 30 copies of this motorcycle were produced.
