How to Make Your Bike Sound Like a Motorcycle/Dirt Bike!



Introduction: How to Make Your Bike Sound Like a Motorcycle/Dirt Bike!

I few months ago, I wanted to make my bike sound like a motorcycle. I found out about these things called motocards. Sadly, they don't make the holders anymore so I have to come up with a design. This is my second version.


hot glue

zip ties

popsicle sticks



drill bit the same size as dowel


Step 1: Making the Holder

Start by cutting 2 pieces to the same length as the width of three pieces. Take 3 popsicle sticks and lay them down. Put the motocard on top of it, and place the short pieces of popsicle sticks in each edge. Hot glue them on. Lay down three more on top of it, and glue those too.

Step 2: Adding Some Holes

Drill a hole the same diameter as your dowel in the center of the card holder. Drill another hole about 1 centimeter from the end of the motocard that has holes. I didn't have a dowel, so instead a whittled down part of a pencil with my knife.

Step 3: Attaching It

Find a spot near the rear tire of your bike where you can put it. Use some zip ties to secure it, then hot glue it on. Put a motocard into it, and insert the dowel. Now, all you have to do is test it out!

    I made something similar when i was probably your age using clothes pegs and cardboard. I can see this wouldn't work on your bike frame design though. Yours is most likely more durable than mine and probably sounds better as well. It used to annoy the crap out of the neighbours.

    Yeah, my bike is really loud, so my neighbors kids asked me to make them one and I did. :)
