Step 1: History
Riders gather momentum through gravity, although some drift trikes have pedals. Pedals are useful for slow speed riding, but are of no use at high speed. Drift trikes can reach speeds of up to 90km/h, but the normal operating speed is between 25 and 65km/h.
Drift trikes have come along way, one of the first mass produced trike was the Huffy slider as pictured.
Many people upgrade huffy sliders where as some build them from scratch. In this instructable I will be using the front end from the slider and building a bolt on MOTORIZED rear end.
Most of the parts can be bought bought from the hardware and the rest from eBay.
