The motorcycle built around a Lamborghini V12

lambobike1

This story, like many other great ones, starts with “my wife was out of the country for the summer and I had nothing to do”.

That’s what inspired a local legend I ran into at Atlanta’s Caffeine and Octane by the name of Chuck Beck to build something very different. He had the skills and tools required to get creative and he had just been gifted with the right amount of time to do something ambitious. A friend of his recently lost a Lamborghini the honorable way (on fire) but it left behind its undamaged V12 engine. The stars aligned and when it was all said and done, he had a functional motorcycle with a Lamborghini’s V12 as its source of power.

Click past the jump for photos and a few details on what has to be the greatest thing I’ve ever seen at a car show.

Hooniverse judges the cars of the 2014 LA Auto Show

Greg Kachadurian November 20, 2014 LA Auto Show

lead

It’s that time of year again. It’s time for the professional auto journalists here at Hooniverse to cover the dozen or so shiny new cars making their global debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show this week.

By “cover” them, I really mean pass judgments on them from the comfort of our own keyboards. Only a few of us were able to make it out to the show this year but that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t pretend to be there covering it. In here you won’t find any boring spec sheets or overdone metaphors for the styling of a side mirror. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any facts at all (that’s all coming in The News tomorrow). What you’ll get instead are the unfiltered and [brutally] honest opinions from some of the creative minds that make up this corner of the Web we call The Hooniverse.

So click past the jump and see what we have to say.
