Auto enthusiast Chuck Beck recently showcased his custom Lamborghini V12-powered - sourced from a salvaged Countach - at Atlanta's Caffeine and Octane.

He somehow made a three-speed automatic transmission from a Volkswagen work with the engine. Unfortunately, there's no word yet on if Beck plans to sell this beauty.

Ronin 47 Motorcycle

Colorado-based Magpul Industries have traded the Showa forks for a cast aluminum alloy linkage fork that makes for an aggressive, lean-forward look. Plus, there's custom hydraulic radial master cylinders and adjustable levers for the brake and clutch, along with a Penske monoshock that lets the rider adjust for variable weight and road conditions.
