Felt Bicycles have teamed up with car maker and former Formula One racing driver Carroll Shelby to produce the Shelby Cruiser.
The bike, which will be available worldwide on a limited edition basis, is a homage to Shelby’s iconic work and features the same Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue paintjob used on classic cars like the Mustang GT350.
“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’re honored to be part of this project.”
The bike is built around a hydroformed aluminium tank frame, with three-speed Shimano Nexus hub gearing and Felt’s Abraham Linkage cruiser fork. It’ll be available from late May for US$900. Visit Felt’s website for more information.
