The Egyptian designer behind this masterpiece created it as a tribute to his homeland.

Featuring the Eagle of Saladin, meticulously-designed hieroglyphs, and hand-painted with 24 carat gold sheets, the bike is a truly stunning creation and currently stands on display at the Ironman Texas expo.The Ironman triathlon consists of a series of long-distance swimming, biking, and running challenges.
