Every year the upmarket catalog of Neiman Marcus Open link in a new window has something very special for Christmas. Christmas is always a period when people tend to buy more expensive stuff as gifts, and for those who have more money than brains, or maybe lots of brains therefore more money, there is a gift that is often unique. So unique that it will cost anyone, including world's richest persons, an arm and a leg (see related articles below for more previous Christmas gifts).

This year Neiman Marcus are 'offering' as special gift a motorcycle. The motorcycle in question is a one-off chopper, handbuilt by Indian Larry Open Indian Larry link in a new window during Discovery Channel's 'Biker Build-Off' and to be sold for the princely sum of US$750,000. That is almost a million bucks for a motorcycle!

Here is what the catalog has to say about this unique motorcycle:

Handbuilt in Brooklyn, New York, for the Discovery Channel "Biker Build-Off" series, "Wild Child" is considered by many to be the pinnacle of Indian Larry's artistic achievements. It features his signature dished tank, root beer metal flake paint, twisted down tube frame, and a truly unique engine with a shovelhead front cylinder, panhead rear, and jockey shift. An open belt drive is emblazoned with the "Wild Child" name. Brass accents and a hand-carved leather seat in Indian Larry's likeness complete the picture of this motorized masterpiece.


It's not like the bike is brand new; it was built in 2003 and Larry rode it from St. Louis to Sturgis, so it's got a few miles on it already. I wonder if there is an warrantee, but I guess if you can pay the sticker price it is not going to be a problem for you. I guess 'people' like Brad Pitt would buy such a gift.

Looking through their catalog for Christmas, the cheapest thing I found was a mug worth $12, the most expensive thing were diamonds worth US$1,850,000.
