    Drift trike first steel attempt.

    So we thought this could be fun and had a quick go a few months ago, the first attempt was with an ally frame bike, which we just hacked away at and bent the rear a frame to allow some M10 threaded bar as a rear axle.

    Our second attempt was after our original wheels exploded and we finally sourced a steel frame BMX..

    have fun laughing at our attempt, now these welds are quite pathetic as i was using my mates "no gas" welder, which i personally wouldn't recommend after using other machines.

    cheers, the wheels are the only hard part, require some ebay scouring, and usually, some money; our home-made attempts have been pretty poor..
    you should build some up, cost us a grand total of 20 quid and took a few hours! shame about the shocking welds, still nice and strong, i threw it at concrete as soon as they were cool to check they would hold.

    get on it buddy! took us a full 3 hours of actual work, hardest part was finding a steel BMX for some reason. the wheels fooked up after about half hour though, so we need to address that when we get some nice weather again!
    unfortunately i live in cambridge which is flood plains, no bloody hills for miles!
