1984 Honda CB450 "Luwak" by Lucca Custom Motorcycles

The Luwak, better known with the name of Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus), and also called toddy cat, is a small mammal native to Southeast Asia. It's well known for being the animal bred for the production of the Luwak Coffee, made with part-digested coffee cherries eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet. As most of the usual names for cafe racers (i.e. Black coffee, cafe noir, Irish coffee, Espresso and so on) were already used too many times everywhere, soon or later, the Luwak name had to be given to a bike... Well, personally, I found it a good idea: I both like the friendly pet and this bike. Nad even the Luwak coffee is not bad at all!
