Extreme Mod: Bike with an aircraft engine

We’ve featured many bizarre vehicles earlier, last week a huge bike with tractor tyres stole the show. Today is the time for Sternmotorbike, a bike powered by an airplane engine. The bike has 9 cylinders and not even a single silencer. I think the designer wants everyone to hear the bike roar. It took about one and a half years for Frank Ohle (designer of the bike) to complete this masterpiece.

Frank is a known modder for several years. He named his creation as Sternmotorbike. It’s a Red Baron Chopper motorized by a 150hp nine-cylinder Rotec Radial R3600 aircraft engine. Following are the specifications that the bike shares:
