Drift Trike - motorized with variable traction - $2200 (santa cruz)





Motorized drift trike

condition: excellent
engine displacement (CC): 125
fuel: gas
transmission: manual

Motorized Variable traction drift trike

Drift trike has 4 wheels on the rear axle, 2 rubber and 2 with plastic sleeves.
All 4 wheels are driven, but cam move up and down independently of each other.
By pulling a lever you can vary the weight between the rubber and plastic wheels,
which varies the traction, giving the trike the ability to accelerate and brake
quickly as well as slide around corners.

Titec bars & R12 bmx stem

NOTE! This trike is NOT for the beginner, it is mechanically complicated and somewhat
complicated to operate.

Thats a pretty cool machine. Fairly complex as a toy, so to speak.

When I saw the title I thought it may be about Colin Furze' drift trike. If anyone isnt familiar with him, he's a Brit that builds all sorts of insane things, from the worlds fastest motorized baby pram (baby stroller) to Wolverine claws that extend and retract, jet powered bike and go cart, a hover bike, to about any bizarre thing you can think of, and probably some you wouldnt think of. Hes got scads of videos on youtube.

Yes officer I was hooning about the parking lot. But lets be honest. You know you want to try it.
