The $850,000 Lauge Jensen Goldfinger 24 Karat Motorcycle

This is considered to be the most expensive custom motorcycle ever sold. The $850,000 Lauge Jensen customized, hand-built, and breathtaking “Goldfinger” motorcycle doesn’t feature a powerful engine, high-tech details, or even a long and storied history. It’s six-figure price tag is due to the fact that it was completely plated in 24-karat gold, covered from front to tail with 250 small diamonds totaling more than seven carets, and features a seat upholstered in “unique cognac-colored crocodile skin.”

Each of the bike’s 859 individual parts were also individually gold-plated by hand for the custom masterpiece. The Lauge Jensen custom motorcycle was actually built without a customer order–a rare case for the Danish company–and was instead built and taken to special private events throughout Monaco and Dubai early this year. Eventually, an undisclosed buyer with pretty deep pockets decided they liked what they saw and handed over the $850,000 right then and there. Even though Uffe Lauge Jensen, the company’s founder and chief creator, declined to comment on the buyer or even where the buyer was from, he did say that there were many buyers interested in the gold-plated custom motorcycle.

Danish design and engineering company Lauge Jensen was established in 2008 by Uffe Lauge Jensen, a custom motorcycle enthusiast who “saw a future in building motorcycles that were unlike any other bikes available on the market.” Lauge Jensen is the first motorcycle manufacturer in Denmark since the demise of Nimbus in the 1960s and continues to be at the forefront of innovation while conceiving designs which make the dreams of customers become a reality.

Since 2012, the company is owned by Jestiff A/S, which is solely owned by Anders Kirk Johansen, a successful Danish industrialist, businessman, and motorcycle enthusiast who comes from one of Denmark’s most prominent business families–his grandfather invented LEGO. According to Lauge Jensen, a Lauge Jensen custom motorcycle “is the physical manifestation of a dream.” There’s currently another custom motorcycle in the works looking to totally eclipse the $850,000 gold-plated Goldfinger. Estimated to cost upwards of $1 million, Jensen says, “it’s going to have a lot of stones and diamonds. We’re talking pretty wild stuff.”
