10 of the Most Expensive Bikes in the World

Bicycles have hit the luxury sector. From leather trims to precious metals, rhinestones and gold frames, here are the world's most expensive bikes

Ridden by Lance Armstrong in the final stage of 2009’s Tour de France, the bike became the world’s most expensive bike when it sold for $500,000.

Sold at auction at Sothebys in New York in 2009 to raise money for the LiveStrong cancer charity, this Trek Modane model, known as Butterfly thanks to the hundreds of real butterflies adorning its frame and wheels, became the world’s most expensive bike when it sold for $500,000.

Ridden by disgraced Lance Armstrong in the final stage of 2009’s Tour de France and designed by Damien Hirst, the bike caused controversy due to the artist’s use of real butterflies. The Trek Butterfly is just one of several Trek bikes that have sold for huge sums at auction over the years.

I guess this throws what our friends at Unbound thought was the world’s most expensive bike right out the window!

PRICE:  $500,000
