  • How freaking great is it to be able to go out to your shop and just make anything you want out of steel? It's a beautiful thing. I wish I still had access to a workshop like that.. I feel like I've lost my soul without it.

  • FIboth removes every single one of my comments with a link in it. Freaking ridiculous. Anyway, I posted Tower Trikes' Facebook page. They make trikes from big rig components and parts. The wheels/tires, engine, smoke stacks, brake system, etc. Freaking incredible. I bet you guys could build something like that.

  • Here's a thought: See about making it street-legal. I believe it's possible to do so, even with a home-made chassis.

  • Seeing you sit on the diff reminds me of a story my neighbor told me. While he was drag racing in the 70's there was a guy with a modified bucket that had the seat over the rear end. On the launch the drive shaft broke and the leaf u-bolts weren't enough to keep the rear from doing a rotation so the output shaft and yoke split the guy in half. He died right there in his car. Anyways, good luck.

  • You need to design a custom radiator that is more like a 4 inch tube that air could flow thru and you could mount along side of your projects like jet engine instead of the classic big rectangle radiators. Yes this random.

  • Should’ve done skid steer steering, with like a pivot bar connecting the handles in the middle for rigidity.

    Rafael Bucio Jr.Rafael Bucio Jr.11 päivää sitten
  • whatever you do, please DO NOT put the radiator anywhere near the drivers seat. if you do, put a shielding of some sort between the radiator and the driver incase the radiator hose blows off and sends scolding water onto the driver, burning them

  • Agree with the comments below that you don’t have nearly enough steering angle for drifting. You’ve set it up to steer like a dirt bike, not a drift trike. See drift cars and how they turn almost 90 degrees to the car. Also see Bikes N Beards channel, where they recently put PVC tires on a huge trike motorcycle and drifted around a parking lot. They ran out of steering angle real quick and really didn’t work out very well. Otherwise this thing looks awesome.

    Todd GerhardtTodd Gerhardt11 päivää sitten
  • You're going to run out of steering angle REALLY quickly when sliding this. Also, That single push/pull rod isn't going to survive many bumps. When you're steering left (Putting the rod in compression) and hit a bump, the rods going to flex away from a straight line, then the compression load is going to try and force that bend further before it has chance to flex back. Strangely, a lot of things people call "Push rod" steering really should be called "Pull rod" steering instead, because long lightweight pushrods flex like hell in compression. They NEED to be in tension to work without bending under load. Apart from those two things the project seems to be coming along pretty well.

If you all want to hit me up Im over in Oregon and can cut a good deal! Would love to see them used by some smarty pantses like yourselves!

  • You should put in additional rod on the other side for the steering so that it pushes and pulls at the same time reducing the load on just that one rod and it will help reduce play in the steering

  • Maybe should’ve started out with a big old heavy crotch rocket, The front wheel and forks would’ve possibly been better for a drift trike? Unless your gonna off-road ride then the more travel the better but probably gonna need a bit more ride height! I’m sure it will have tracks and a ski on it next winter! Lol.
