Introduction: Standing Drift Trike

Are you sick and tired of your regular bicycle? You'll never get tired of this one. It is probably the most versatile drift trike ever. See videos below!

WARNING!!!
THIS BIKE HACK WILL DRAW A TON OF ATTENTION!!!

Step 1: Watch the Videos.

Step 2: Remove Everything That Has to Do With the Chain Drive.

Remove rear wheel, cranks, etc. 

Step 3: Install the Rear Axle.

I got the axle from an old Power Wheels kiddie electric quad bike. Make sure you tighten the bolts really well!  If you can weld, weld the axle on instead of bolting it.  

Step 4: Put on the Rear Wheels.

Step 5: Add Reflectors (optional).

Step 6: Optional Compartment.

You could store and extra inner tube for the front tire ... or some chocolate, as long as it's not a hot day!

Wonder how it'd go with the regular seat still on. Good reuse of an old bike and drifting looks fun

I actually tried that on another drift trike project and it worked really well for going down hill. You had much more control over it than with the standard drift trike seat setup.

Neat. I was wondering because of the higher centre of gravity. But that also means you can shift the weight around more, I guess
