There has been a growing trend recently of automotive manufacturers making their own bicycles and I for one love it. Continuing that trend is auto racing legend Carroll Shelby who has teamed up with racing bike manufacturer Felt Bicycles to create the Shelby Cruiser, a bicycle with the spirit of a Shelby. The Shelby Cruiser is a two-wheel incarnation of classic Shelby muscle cars such as the GT350.

The Shelby Cruise has a blue and white paint job modeled after the color scheme that adorned the bodies of many of Shelby's classics. "The bike rolls on 36 spoke wheels wrapped with 'blue dot' tires to resemble automotive racing tires, and a proprietary linkage-designed springer fork affords fast and precise handling." The bike is set to hit Felt Bicycle stores later this month and will sell for a cool $999.
