Red Baron motorcycle with airplane engine (w/video)

Frank Ohle is a German engineer/designer who adores big bikes, the bigger the better, and he likes to custom build bikes and one of his creations was a 700 kg motorcycle fitted with an Aston Martin V12 engine that was seen at the Essen Motor Show in 2010.

Ohle’s latest creation is a ‘chopper’ dubbed the Red Baron.

The bike bears the name of the famous World War 1 German fighter pilot, because it’s powered a 150hp nine-cylinder Rotec Radial R3600 aircraft engine.
It took Ohle 18 months to create the motorcycle, only he isn’t the first to experiment with a radial airplane engine on a motorcycle
