When you take a trip down to memory lane to 2014 when artisans at the Goldgenie, a gold-plating company located in London produced a 24-karat gold bike from $1,049 Giant Defy aluminum framed road by gold plating every piece of the bike, starting from the handlebars’ tips to the spokes, to the derailleur and to every single cog on the gear clusters, including the chain.
