Introducing the Wanksta
After learning of Kanye West’s purchase of a Cinelli Vigorelli, rival rap star 50 Cent went on a mission to outdo his nemesis. He didn’t just want a bike of his own, Fiddy wanted his own bike. His search brought him to California where he connected with Money S, another former hustler who now owns a bike company. Though Money S started out in a VW bus and Fiddy rolled out of Queens in a white Benz, both came up with a competitive ego and a common love of money.
The Wanksta’s gold-plated frame, fork, hubs and rims are complimented by black decals designed by Fiddy himself. The nine bullet holes across the top tube are both a reminder of the attempt on his life (in May of 2000) and a warning to would be bike thieves. The custom Beretta 9mm (included) clicks into a proprietary quick-release bottle cage mount, which is quite possibly the first of its kind.
