United States President Joe Biden has gifted UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson a special custom-built bicycle on the sidelines of the G7 summit.

The special hand-built bicycle was manufactured by Philadelphia firm Bilenky Cycle Works in the record time of just 10 days.

The 'Boris Bike' is painted in the colours and patterns of the United Kingdom's national flag and has signatures of Joe Biden and Boris Johnson on the crossbar. 

 

The head tube of the bicycle has both US and British flag on the head tube.

Bilenky Cycle Works shared photos of the diplomatic gift on its Facebook page.

The bike was reportedly built by Bilenky Cycle Works owner Stephen Bilenky himself and made on a budget of $6,000 in less than two weeks.
