Drift trike

Hi ladies and gents. I've been off the forum for a long time, working on career, life and 2 kids later and I can't stop myself wanting to build again. I started this time with a drift trike. After much googling I came across SFD industries that had build a sweet version of the drift trike wit a nice mountain bike Fat Bike front wheel. I thought I'd give it a try and see how it turns out.

I've opted for burlier steel tubing, 40mm steam pipe....they use titanium I think. Titanium is hard to find locally and I like steam pipe . machined up all little brackets, made custom fork and rear axle. Everything was tig welded. Hope you enjoy the pics:

Interesting project, but deffo for the younger LCB-er.

One's arse is a little too close to the tarmac, for my liking!





Work-in-Progress: Changed to Zetec + T9. Still trying!!

This looks like a lot of fun for a relatively small amount of work.

How long did it take you to build? What engine are you running?
