A completely hatstand fixed-gear bike by Paris based design outfit WLWC (Watch Life With Curiosity), which, sez they:

…originates from the concept of reclaiming mass produced and generic objects and re-issuing them as individual and unique pieces.

The stealthy looking beast – which took 90 hours to hand-build – has a lightweight aluminum frame, cinelli handlebars, carbon fiber saddle, hand machined titanium brakes and bespoke pedals, all clad in scales from four reclaimed crocodile skins.

It costs €14,700.
