Did you ever wish that your piddly little bicycle was a fearsomely noisy motorbike? Course you did. It’s why you stuck spoke-bothering lollipop sticks in your forks and bent your mudguards inside out. ‘Phturrrrrppplll!’ But if you were really cool you bought one of those rev-able vroom-vrooming soundboxes. And thanks to your easy riding buddies here at Firebox you can do it again.
Attach via a simple clamp
The Moto Horn is an exact replica of the deafening spring-loaded noisemaker coveted by every bike-loving kid back in the 70s. Simply attach it to your handlebars (via a peasy clamp system), give it a twist and prepare to have your eardrums assaulted by its realistic (well, sort of) revving noise. Think Strepsil-less dinosaur gargling chainsaws and you’re halfway there. VROOM, VROOM!
Yes it’s completely pointless and incredibly childish but we guarantee you’ll be unable to stop revving it every time you pull up at the lights. Passers-by will be gobsmacked. Especially if you’re 35-years-old and on your way to a board meeting.
Just pull the grip back to rev
Speaker (no electronics!)
Just like the original version, the Moto Horn produces its incredibly loud, guttural growl without any batteries or electronics. A simple internal cog system is all it takes to get your motor hummin’. It’s just like being a kid again, only this time there’s no need to chew freshly picked scabs or argue over who’s got the widest cowhorns.
Whether you’re cruising for chicks on your Grifter, Knievel-ing it up on your Chopper or going to work on your state of the art mountain bike, this brilliant gizmo will increase your cool factor tenfold. Slip on a biker’s jacket and fellow road users will be unable to distinguish you from the Fonz. Probably. Oh, to be ten again. VROOM, VROOM!
Not suitable for children under three years. Small parts or components make it a choking hazzard
Warning: check brakes after fitting and before use
No batteries required!
Remove handlebar grip
Slacken two fitting screws in steel clamp with screwdriver (not provided) via two holes on the top of the case
Slide onto handlebar and re-tighten two screws
Make sure it does not obstruct any gear or brake levers
Sure beats the pieces of cardboard we used to tape to the frame and stick in the spokes that we used to get a "motorbike" noise. Nick L, Rugby - 12th August 2009
A fantastic present. My grandsons have a wonderful time with them. Julie Coughtrey, Southampton - 4th August 2009
Hi Firebox! Just a quick question. Is this thing waterproof? Charlie Sdaler, Age 10, Sheffield - 16th July 2009
Firebox says: Mostly! More 'rain proof' than waterproof so don't go dropping it in any massive puddles or anything.
These are really cool. Back in 1987 I had one of these on my black Raleigh Burner (coolest bikes ever) and constantly had to push through a circle of kids to get to my bike at home time.
I used to play a Kickstart slowly revving and going up and down kerbs and other death defying drops.
Aahhhh the memories....... Dogtanian, Dumfries - 21st May 2009
