Classic Car- DeLorean Bike
Ever since the first time I’ve seen the movie Back to the Future, I’ve always dreamed of driving a DeLorean. It has to be one of the most amazing cars ever built. However, if you want to buy one expect to pay a lot because only 9,000 were made before the DeLorean Motor Company‘s bankruptcy in 1982. However, things are about to change.
The production plant is back in business. They aren’t making flying cars though, they are making bikes. You’re going to need one heck of a big hill to pedal your way to 88 mph.
The idea for The DeLorean Bicycle began much like the DeLorean vehicle itself – a goal to build a vehicle of style and substance with innovative features that would represent a value for both the passionate and casual cyclists alike.
Smoothness - Complete road isolation while still maintaining a connected feeling to the terrain.
Stiffness - Allowing full power to go into the pedals, and not lost to flexing of the frame.
Durability – Corrosion is absolutley minimized, a very high fatigue life, low impact resistance, and ease of repair.
Weight - Not exactly tied to ride quality, but more affecting the overall ride feel and performance.
DeLorean branded bikes, made in stainless steel just like the car, will hit the market at around $5,500. If that scares you imagine the fact you may be able to rig the bike with a flux capacitor.
