Listen to the Beautiful Sound of a Lamborghini V-12 Powered Motorcycle

Just like any other logical person, Chuck Beck – legendary builder and fabricator – had a Lamborghini V-12 sitting around and decided to place it into a motorcycle frame.
The Lamborghini-powered motorcycle made an appearance at a Caffeine and Octane event in Alpharetta, Georgia. earlier this month. Lucky for us, someone had his camera out when the V-12 fired up, allowing us to enjoy the glorious sound.
 
The engine came from a friend of Beck's who lost his Lambo due to a fire. Luckily the engine was saved in great shape and Beck was able to custom build a frame around the V-12. The wheelbase is ridiculously long and Beck was able to machine a linkage so the handlebars could be mounted towards the back of the engine, where the rider sits.

We're curious as to how the transmission works, but it looks beautiful with the exposeded chains and gears on the right side.

While the video leaves a lot of questions unanswered – why and how – it showcases something utterly insane that obviously took a lot of work and love to complete.
It may have taken a while, but Beck has finally one-upped the Dodge Tomahawk. Watch the videos below to listen to the one-off machine in action.
