Last year, the world of Cars and Coffee was swiped off its wheels by a motorcycle built around a Lamborghini V12 heart. The Riding Bull is now back into the headlines since the project has received cool neo-retro fairings to go with the carburetor power.
The now-complete bike showed up at a Caffeine, and Octane meet once again. While we have to admit we also adored the fully-naked look of the early development stage, this time things are dialed up to eleven.

The custom fiberglass work makes us think of art-deco vibes, while the finish sees fine Yellow stripes adorning the Red hue that dominates the bike.

Meanwhile, we found out the build comes from a guy called Chuck Beck. You should remember this name, since the man deserves quite some credit for all the attention he’s paid to the little details.

Sheer weight issues aside, this definitely isn’t the easiest bike to ride. For one thing, the position of the handlebars means you’ll have to develop a... custom riding style.

As for the exact details of the engine, there’s no word on this yet. Nonetheless, we’ll remind you that, before Lamborghini came up with an all-new V12 design for the Aventador, the Italians kept upgrading their 60-degree quad-cam V12 that was designed by Bizzarini back in the early 1960s.

Over the years, the cubic capacity went from 3.5 to 4.0, 6.2 and 6.5 liters, while bullpower jumped from 274 to 670 hp. The most likely version is that this bike is motivated by the 4-liter version, which would mean that rear wheel is fed with over 300 hp. The extra treats that derive from this are on the house.
