King of All Motorcycles: Red Baron Bike is Powered by an Airplane Engine

Red Baron Motorcycle

Now this is one roarin’ motorcycle!

The Red Baron is a souped up bike that had its engine pulled out and replaced with a Rotec Radial R3600, which is a 150-horsepower, nine-cylinder engine. This type of engine was most commonly used as a replacement engine during the World War I-era airplanes. The bike is Frank Ohle’s baby, who spent 18 months turning it from concept into reality.

The Red Baron makes a lot of noise down the road and looks impressive with its huge and all-too-powerful engine. You can see it in action in the video above.
