Sir, you are in luck! While not the exact horn. I do have, in my personal collection, one large Taxi horn and I am attaching an mp3 for your listening pleasure.

Hi John,

Found your website content very good and exciting! I had been to a vintage car rally in Pune, India and found an ample-sized horn attached to a 1969 Italian Piaggio “autorickshaw” (a 3-wheeler for public transport). I’m not sure about its size, but it must be somewhere around 24-30 inches long. I have attached a few pics of the vehicle with the horn. The sound was thunderous and kids enjoyed squeezing it. The owner said he had to import the horn from UK. I tried searching online but couldnt find any of this giant size.
Keep up the good work!
Here’s the pics of an awesome horn. Don’t you want to hear it?

KP also had suggestions for the site especially around how I can accommodate contributions. I mentioned I’m in the process of building a Facebook page and hopefully will have something up in the next week or so. In the meantime please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email john[AT]

Thanks KP! Much appreciated.

      The uploaded sound is not of that large horn. The horn in the picture seems to be a desmo. I am in possession of two of them. One Desmo and other Lucas. If you are interested in their sound. Just send me a mail.
