Building a Motorized Drift Trike by Hayden Pegley
Abstract: The goal of this project was to create an affordable motorized drift trike using a hand-welded steel frame, the front half of a used mountain bike, and a 6.5 hp, 212 cc Predator gas engine. The back frame of the trike was welded over the course of several weeks, and components including the axle, front wheel, and throttle system were added after the frame’s completion. While the trike is not fully operational, the throttle system is functional and the trike is near completion.
