Take your love of Shelby to the bike lanes. It’s recently been announced by Carroll Shelby Licensing that the company has paired with bike maker Felt Bicycles to offer the limited edition Shelby Cruiser.

A two-wheeled cycling machine, the Shelby Cruiser was designed to “exude the Shelby image and culture,” so it’s outfitted with a Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue paint scheme – the trademark of many of Shelby’s vintage cars. In addition, the bike also showcases Felt’s hydro-formed aluminum tank frame, three-speed Shimano Nexus internal gearing and 36-spoke wheels.

“The team at Felt understands the passion that drives many Shelby enthusiasts, which is similar to the spirit of competition in many Felt bike owners,” said Tracey Smith, vice president of Carroll Shelby Licensing. “Now enthusiasts can take their love of Shelbys to the bike trails, streets and beach boardwalks.”

And Felt is pleased with the partnership as well. “Carroll is known for his determination to succeed and his passion for performance,” said Felt President Bill Duehring. “These attributes propelled Shelby to the pinnacle of auto racing and inspired a legion of fans. At Felt Bicycles, we share these same values and we are honored to be part of this project.”

Each individually badger, serial numbered Shelby Cruiser retails for $999 and will be available later this month.
