"The bicycle would be Black, almost radar absorbent. Any eye that caught it would be captured in its dark gravity. With flat paneling it would look like a veiled threat."

The pre-production series of B-9 NH was made for testing. All the parts produced by BME Design - the frame, fork, handlebars with the stem, saddle assembly and crankset passed the tests and fulfill the safety and quality requirements according to the EN 14764:2006 standard. The testings were provided by accredited Engineering Test Institutes in Czech Republic.
The B-9 NH Urban Stealth bicycle was presented at the following exhibitions:
The project of the B-9 NH Urban Stealth bicycle was recently stopped due to the fact that I didn't find a partner for financing and sales. However, I did manufacture three of these bicycles (further production no longer possible). Two complete bicycles were used for testing, exhibitions, presentations and test riding. The third bicycle remains unpainted and unassembled.
So, the third bicycle, practically speaking, is the only one in the world available for sale. The unique nature of the bicycle makes it suitable as an investment, since no one else will be able to buy another ever again.
The bicycle is suitable for someone who wants to have unique items, items which differentiate themselves from others. Choice of bicycle color, color layout, or maybe advertising logo for a company will be included in the price.
In case of your interest, please contact me with your price offer. I should mention that due to my investment in this project I do have a reserve price in mind for the sale. Thank you for your interest.
