This build was inspired by my love of going to car shows. I really enjoy going to the larger outdoor car shows/swap meets, but hate all the walking, not to mention having to carry all the cool stuff you pickup during the stroll. So, I started looking for a cool little ride that I could zip around the car shows (and neighborhood) and maybe pull a wagon to carry any stuff I may buy. Long story short, everything that I found was either ugly, not cool, super expensive or all three. So, I decided to design and build a ride of my own. The three following videos will show the process that I went through to build this trike. The first video (more of a slideshow) will show the design and build process. The second video will explain the design features of the trike. (PLEASE note that the clicking in the second video is from the very cheap camera I was using...very annoying, I know... SORRY). The third video will show a quick ride on the trike. Thank you and thank you for watching!

NOTE: The batteries were upgraded to 2 12v 50amph SLA batteries, and the rear wheels were re-spooked and straightened.
Step 4: RIDE Video
There it is...Thank you for watching!
