For those who remember a time when Tom Ford was the creative mind behind Gucci, you may recall that the designer had created more than just designer clothes. Prior to his departure from the Italian label, the designer produced what is now known as the Gucci ‘Guccissima’ Limited Edition 2005 bicycle. For those who would love to get their hands on anything vintage and unique, then this may just be your chance.

According to Cope & Cabrera, who happens to have just one of the bicycle’s as a part of its private collection, this is the first time that one is up for auction. Hand-crafted and a work of art that few will be able to call their own, the bicycle features all the signature Gucci characteristics. From the signature leather seat that showcases the chocolate brown shade that Gucci is known for to the seat pack that is fitted with a buckle enclosure and a double pannier travel bag, no detail has been left to chance.

The metallic bronze frame of the bicycle also displays the signature stripes of Gucci and has the large double-G emblems throughout. If that was not enough, the brand even engraved ‘GG’ on the bell. The bicycle has been on display for eight years now and is said to be in near perfect condition Though, should you wish to own the Gucci ‘Guccissima’ bicycle, be sure to part with a cool US$11,676 — a small price really for something that is expertly crafted.
