How to Make a Bicycle Sound like a Motorcycle

You are an adventurous kid and want to play with your bicycle? You can make it sound like a motorcycle with not much effort.

    Take a test ride of your bike in an open place. You need to make sure that you are travelling at a decently fast pace and you don’t have to apply the brakes for some distance. It is crucial for you to know that you can ride it for almost a mile at least. Pick a straight road with fewer bumps. You need to ride the bike fast and keep it in control as well so that your life is not in danger. You can choose a trace on the park but it curves sharply mostly so it is not a wise idea to use a park as a track.

    Locate the area where the brakes are applied on the bike. They are at the tyre’s top area and covered with brake pads that squeeze the tyre whenever you apply the brakes. You will find a hole near that place and you will have to put the plastic container in that area. Place it with utmost care. It shouldn’t enter the area of the tyre but should only rub against it. You can tape the container with the rod as well.

    Test the bike by riding it in your garden. It should make the noise as the plastic material smashes with the tyre which produces the sound.
