Is your bike decorated with real butterflies?

Once again Lance Armstrong amazes me in his ability to get large companies, people, artists and the world behind him for a cause. This past year he raced on several custom Trek bikes that were designed by different artist and companies (Trek, Nike). Now, all those bikes have been auctioned off for his Livestrong foundation to support cancer research. The seven bikes raised a total of $1.25million! The most sought after bike was the white Trek decorated with real butterflies that he used on the final stage of this years Tour de France. This work of art fetched a cool $500,000.
