Introducing the Wanksta


50 CentAfter 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.

WankstaThe 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.

As of press time, there’s an unsubstantiated rumor circulating that Fat Joe, Jadakiss and Lil Wayne have entered into negotiations with Trek, Cannondale and Bianchi.

    Please tell me that I am not the only one that thinks a bicycle with a gun mount and bullet holes on it is a horrible message to send to our youth and young adults?!

    Nope, you’re the only one. I think a bike with a firearm holster is a GREAT idea! Maybe it’ll make dealings with automobiles to go more politely if they can actually SEE what you’re packing…

    well brian if youth and young adults can get a gun than i’m guessing their parents aren’t really the best influence anyway. ps brian this is a humorous article and you should monitor your kids on the interwebz
