Once the only available gold LEGO pieces were, well… gold, but these days all manner of parts are available in the blingiest hue. We suspect not quite as many as ianying616‘s Ducati V4R Panigale utilises though.
Still, paint and decals or not, ianying’s Ducati looks absolutely magnificent in its golden colour scheme, and there’s loads more of it to see on Flickr at the link above, where there’s an even goldier motorcycle available if you’re Lil Jon.
This brilliant Ducati 1199 Panigale was suggested by several readers, and it gave us a bit of a categorisation dilemma here in TLCB Office. There are Technic, System and even Town parts contained within it (see if you can find the crossbow!), and the beauty of LEGO is that they all mesh together wonderfully to create an authentic looking replica motorcycle.
In the end we settled on ‘Model Team’, Gerald Cacas is the builder behind it, and you can see more of his Ducati – and the parts inventiveness used to create it – on Flickr at the link above.
