We study spin-rotation effects in a magnetic molecule bridge d between two conducting leads. Dy- namics of the total angular momentum couples spin tunneling to the mechanical rotations. Landau- Zener spin transition produced by the time-dependent magne tic field generates a unique pattern of mechanical oscillations that can be detected by measuring t he electronic tunneling current through the molecule.
