Chanel bike features 3 detachable Shoulder Bags!

Chanel has chosen a timely launch for itscovetable accessory: an ergonomically designed, eight-speed bicycle. The bike had been created as part of Chanel's spring/summer 2008 offering to celebrate the heritage of the house, which is steeped in Coco Chanel's love of sport. Paul Morland quotes Mademoiselle on the subject in his 1996 book, L'Allure de Chanel
This Limited Edition Chanel Bike is the ultimate in two-wheeled novelty. With only 50 made and less than 20 available in the US, this creation retailed for $17,000, with reseller markups hitting $28,000 already. 

The Chanel bike aims to impress with very fine detail, like the quilted leather handles, seat (made by the legendary Brooks Brothers), pant guard, even the bike pump is covered in Chanel’s signature quilted leather. The bike also features two quilted flap bags and a jewelry roll behind the seat, all of which are detachable and can be used as individual shoulder bags!

Hermes joins the ranks of the bicycle couture with a flawless creation in lacquered stainless steel. 

For this timeless, genderless beauty with Taurillon Clemence leather accents you have to pay $4,000. 

Gucci Cruiser Bicycle, a bike whose price range fits in between the Hermes and Chanel bikes.  The bronze metal frame does look nice with the chocolate Guccissima leather seat, handlebars, seat pack, and pannier. And the price on this bike is $6365.
