Shelby Cruiser by Felt Bicycles
Felt Bicycles is paying homage to the iconic Shelby GT350. They definitely went all-out on this limited edition Shelby Cruiser. The designers took styling cues straight from classic Shelby GT350 racing traditions. They paid very close attention to detail, which is very noticeable and intriguing to say the least. The Shelby Cruiser features the legendary Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue paint that was only found on the famed Shelby GT350.
The bike is built around Felt’s signature hydro-formed aluminum tank frame. The Felt designers also fitted the bike with high performance three-speed Nexus internal gearing, which is a perfect compliment to the design and overall functionality of the bike. It also sports 36 spoke wheels wrapped with “blue dot” tires for added comfort and really adds to the overall look of the bike. They utilize the classic Abraham Linkage Double Springer Fork for fast and precise handling. Every detail of this Shelby Cruiser is honed to the tradition and passion embodied by Carroll Shelby and his company. This is a classic in the making!
