Shelby partners with Felt for limited edition cruiser bike
May 10, 2011
After Range Rover, Audi and MINI, we have Carroll Shelby from the automobile world with their offering on two wheels – the Shelby Cruiser. Carroll Shelby Licensing has teamed up with bike maker Felt Bicycles
to design and develop a limited edition cruiser that "exudes the Shelby image and culture." The bike flaunts the Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue paint scheme that was seen on many of Shelby’s vintage cars. The bike boasts Felt's hydro-formed aluminum tank frame, three-speed Shimano Nexus internal gearing and 36-spoke wheels.
Felt President Bill Duehring cites…
Carroll is known for his determination to succeed and his passion for performance. 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 are honored to be part of this project.
Tracey Smith, vice president of Carroll Shelby Licensing, says…
The team at Felt understands the passion that drives many Shelby enthusiasts, which is similar to the spirit of competition in many Felt bike owners. Now enthusiasts can take their love of Shelbys to the bike trails, streets and beach boardwalks.
Individually badged, serial numbered and priced at $999
, the Shelby Cruiser will be available later this month.
