I first discovered the world of drift trikes about 6-8 months ago on You-tube and became instantly hooked and decided that I had to build one of these big crazy tricycles to have some fun on the many hills in the South Down of Northern Ireland area where I live.
I used to ride mountain bikes on these hills but past injuries have left me unable to grind the hills the way I used to, this is something I have missed over the last few years but now that I have a drift trike I can once more enjoy the numerous hills in my area.
One of my friends lives at the to of this 2.5 mile long hill, this is why I had to build the trike, once I get well enough practiced I will ride this hill and upload a video.
The project started on the 18 of September and was finished on the 24th of December Lemmy Kilmister's birthday, is was going to have the Lemmy - Hawkwind - Motorhead theme but finishing the project on his birthday was an added bonus. There has a time when if I had all these material ready I could have done this project in a couple of days, I had planned this to be an over winter project and was surprised that i managed to get I completed much faster than i had planned. The trike will not see much action until spring has returned and the days are longer, warmer and drier and I get the road safety side of things organised.
Thanks for looking.
