If ever the famous and notorious Red Baron Open Red Baron link in a new window would have had a motorcycle, this one would have been it. It's a custom made chopper, using a real aircraft engine, in this case a Radial Aircraft EngineRadial Aircraft Engine.

Red Baron Motorcycle

You should have a look at the video below, and TURN UP THE VOLUME. This is one engine you'll want to hear purr away. Amazing. I'd say the motorcycle has an enormous torque, but also that it's very heavy. The little propeller is just a gag.

The video is part of an article from the German motorcycle magazine Motorrad Open Motorrad link in a new window, and the builder and chopper are in Germany (the chopper's name is Red Baron). But even if they talk a bit in German, and some of the text is in German, it doesn't remove any of the fun. Have a look.

Of course it's the not first time a radial aircraft engine was used on a motorcycle, quite a lot of them have been made in the past (including one driven by Jay Leno). Click here to have a look at many other radial engine motorcycles Open Bored-Night link in a new window.
