You might not get enough speed to go “Back to the Future” on the new DeLorean Bicycle, but it is a pretty hip way to get around town, especially if you can’t afford the iconic car.
The automotive version of the Delorean costs about $50,000, if you can find one. Compare that with the two-wheeled leg-powered version – a steal at $5,500. The bike is collaboration between the DeLorean Motor Company and Marc Moore, who is a cyclist and former DeLorean owner. And just like its famous inspiration, the bike’s frame is made of stainless steel.
There’s only one model available – the DeLorean Anyday – but there are a couple more in the works. Instead of a typical chain, the Anyday features a belt drive, and its wheels are lit up with a luminescent coating that gives the impression of turning on when headlights shine on them.
There’s no word if future models will come with a flux capacitor, but we’re pretty sure you’d have to pay extra for that upgrade. If you’re interested in buying one, check out the DeLorean Bicycle site.
