We all know that one of the best ways to stay safe on our motorcycles is to just be noticed. Some of us use bright headlights and LEDs; some of us put on aftermarket exhausts that turn our bikes into rumbling machines; others install third-party horns that are as loud as trucks. For Frank Ohle, none of that was enough. He wanted to get noticed so badly that he built this custom motorcycle that is powered by an actual airplane engine.

Wait. What??

That’s right, this bike isn’t just a custom bike. It’s a custom bike that has a real, Rotec R3600 engine which traditionally powered World War I airplanes starting in the 1910’s. And it is appropriately nicknamed, “The Red Baron.”

The bike is, to put it gently (because the bike won’t do anything gently), incredibly loud. We don’t mean “loud” as in showy, though it is that. We just mean loud as in this thing will wake up the neighbors, grandpa and the entire graveyard when it comes roaring past. We’ve included a video from a German motorcycle website, since there is no available English vids we could get the rights to publish, so ignore the language being spoken and just enjoy the pure, mind-blowing sound and power that is sitting between these two wheels.

While we couldn’t get the video of this bike in person ourselves (sorry, we just don’t have an international correspondent yet), we DO have our own YouTube channel, which has hundreds of the greats video reviews of many of our products, as well as just fun, entertaining videos like this one for your viewing pleasure. Head on over to our YouTube channel now and subscribe to make sure you never miss a great video!
