How to Make Your Mountain Bike Sound Like a Motor Bike




Introduction: How to Make Your Mountain Bike Sound Like a Motor Bike

About: My name is Joshua O'Meara. I like iPhones (and other similar devices), swimming, soccer, carpentry, running, and other outdoor activities.

You know that really cool motor bike sound? Have you ever wanted to have one for that sound but you don't have enough money? Look no farther. This is a very simple fix and an awesome sound.

Step 1: Supplies

What you will need: A plastic water bottle A bike with bumpy tires

Step 2: Assembly

Crush the bottle. Then shove it in between the tire and the top of the fork (look at the picture for better explanation).

Step 3: All Done!

Now ride around town and impress all your friends with your dirtbike!

    you didn't mention that this makes the tires bald... and it's dangerous. I did this on my bike once and it locked the front wheel and I flipped over the handlebars. not trying to blame you for my extremely minor injuries, but people should be aware that this is dangerous

    This is something you do as a 10 year old, I do not assume any 10 year olds use instructables

    perhaps a better title would be "make your mountain bike sound like a motor bike" . Back in the stone ages we used clothes pins to attach playing cards so they hit our spokes making a motor like sound. I used a heavy duty zip tie on my 6yo grandsons bike, he said "popaw that's strange"

    Ok. Thank you for the tip. This is my second instructible so I am open to tips or suggestions. Thanks again! :)

    What part are you confused about? No it is not a joke, it actually does make a sound somewhat like a motorcycle or dirtbike.
