Pulling Stunts in a Motorized Drift Trike You’ve Built with Your Own Hands Is Overly Manly

There are lads out there who can build just about anything if given the right tools, and there are also guys who can drift the hell out of a machine, regardless of the number of wheels it packs. Then there’s this Brit called Colin Furze, who can do both.
Earlier this week, we’ve talked about his latest build, namely a motorized drift trike. As promised, Colin is now back with a video that shows the contraption in action.

With the DIY trike being able to climb to 50 mph (80 km/h), the possibilities are pretty much endless, as our skilled guy explains, “Here we have my awesome motorized drift trike in all its happy glory, its good for about 50mph and you can drift n spin till your sick with no hills required.”

We have to admit that catering to the needs of those who want to drift their trikes but have no hills at their disposal is our kind of political correctness.

Is there a DIY airbag built into that tie?

Speaking of issues the modern world has used us to address, Colin doesn’t seem to be wearing a helmet. A simple “we’re strongly advising you to wear your safety gear while drifting” would probably leave many youngsters unimpressed, so we want to elaborate.

Taking a wild stab in the dark, we believe Colin doesn’t need a helmet because, given his DIY obsession, he must’ve built a massive airbag into the tie adorning his shirt.

In case you’re wondering what powers the trike, you should know that motivation comes from a 125cc pit bike engine.

And since the Brit is here to serve the drifting public’s interest, he’s inviting people to build their own. In case that sounds tempting, grab a tool kit and check out his tutorial here.
