One of the “hottest” headlines from this year’s G7 summit is the amazing bespoke bicycle that the U.S President, Joe Biden, gifted the prime minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson. This specially-made bicycle is said to have cost a total of ₦2.5 million ($6,000) to produce just one unit. It must have been an “unusual” but a very special gift, isn’t it?
U.S President, Joe Biden recently gifted a bespoke bicycle to UK’s prime minister, Boris Johnson during the 2021 G7 Summit
It is actually a well-known fact that the UK’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is a hardcore environmentalist who loves riding on a bicycle between his office and his home. This is probably the reason why the US president, Joe Biden decided to gift Boris Johnson a custom-made expensive bicycle during the recent G7 Summit. Also, the background story of this custom-made bicycle is just as special as the bicycle itself.
There are so many amazing details factored into the production of the bespoke bicycle gifted to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson
According to media reports, the custom-made bicycle gifted to UK’s prime minister Boris Johnson is specially constructed by Bilenky Cycle Works, a US-based bicycle shop. Reliable sources claim that Bilenky bicycle shop normally takes about 18 months to produce just one handmade bicycle. Fortunately, the company agreed to make an exception this time around as they ended up producing UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s bicycle in less than a month. Several media outlets also confirmed that the owner of Bilenky bicycle shop was actually contacted by the US government on the 23rd of May 2021. And surprisingly, his company was able to finish the bicycle, as well as a matching helmet which they delivered before June 11.
