aoogah horn

Postby guitarzan » Thu Jun 30, 2016 9:10 pm



Hi,
Is it legal to put an Aoogah Horn on a motorcycle? I was just thinking that they sure do draw attention and maybe put one on my Goldwing SE 1500.

Thank you
Frank

You could put on a bicycle horn with a rubber bulb, as long as it makes noise, it is legal.

I can tell you right now that Amazon sells a few of them. I just want to get a good one and mind a place to hide it on the wing. I had one on an old Plymouth Valiant I had. It was a 60 something. Well when I sold the car my Dad asked me to take the Aoogah Horn off so I could put it on his Chevy Nova. So I did and when he finally sold that car he had me take it off and he wanted to put in their new Bonneville but my Mom wouldn't let him. So my brother has it on his Saturn now and it still works like a charm. Lol It sure gets peoples attention. I've received the one finger salute from a lot of startled drivers. :lol:

That's funny! Mom not wanting that horn on her car and now an ahhhoooogah horn on a Saturn. :lol:
The Goldwing horn on a Saturn wouldn't be a big surprise so just swap it off the Saturn! :D

On man, I wish I could. My brother loves that thing. It does kind of turn heads being on a Saturn.

It turns heads but they're looking all over and around the Saturn and thinking "Where did that noise come from?" "It sounded like an old timey horn." :lol:

I think I have seen them in Harbor Freight in Jacksonville, Florida. If you have a Harbor Freight in your area check there. I remember those from when I was a kid. They got lots of attention, as well as the wolf whistles.

Hi,
You're right Russell, are you going to give it a try?

Probably not, I'm one of those guys that likes to keep everything original. I may, however, try to find a set of horns off a car in the junkyard that will fit in the original location. I found some on a Lexus that turned out to be just a little too big but, I'm still looking. I just want a good loud normal sound.

OOOH! Fire Department air horns. Those are loud. You could probably mount them backwards and propel your Goldwing on impulse power.

I rode up next to a tractor trailer once on the highway that had a set of locomotive (train) horns mounted on it, facing downward towards the ground. I saw something odd buried in the tractor, and rode next to him for a few seconds trying to figure it out until I realized what they were. I then looked up at the driver, who was looking down at me. I gave him the "pull the horn" sign, he grinned, and let it blast - sounded just like a train, and man was it loud! :)

Ah, train horns! Had a friend that mounted a set on his Ford pickup truck. Had a 20 gallon air tank just to feed those horns - 20 gallons of air was enough for about a 5 second blast that could be heard 2 zip codes away!
