    Custom bicycle question

    I have a custom bicycle question to ask? I have looked everywhere online for a custom bicycle frame made of aluminum or other material and one thin sheet real marble material on the frame and can't find anything like that anywhere online. Is it possible for a custom bicycle frame builder to put one sheet of real marble over aluminum or other bicycle frame material. I need your opinion on this.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Marble? As in stone?

    Even assuming you could find a sculptor to carve thin hollow tubing out of marble that could be fit over a metal tube, the result would be either so thin as to be incredible fragile or so heavy as to render the bike unridable.

    Why not a custom faux-marble paint job? That would look cool.

    But somehow I sense I'm missing the point here.
