Default Well...then.... I guess.....?????

"YOU'RE ABOUT AS USEFULL AS POOPY FLAVORED LOLLY POP!" Is the only thing that comes to mind when seeing this.

It aint fast. It ain't stable. And it looks like it can barely hold it's own weight. So was this just welding practice or did someone think this was gonna catch on?

And I thought the one that has a Harley front end was ridiculous.

the funny thing is, that such four piece BMX handlebar can set you back 80 bucks with ease
(even used at times)

strange.. like people cutting a 500 dollar mongoose and sell the 'homemade drift trike' a year later for 120...

*sigh*

'sid

PS the schwinn gladiator used on ebay 140 bucks btw... ten more than this contraption

The only way to make it worse is to put on a zebra seat and some license plates and call it road legal. It would be like watching a giant purple cockroach going down the street.

It's that ugly

Only way to make it more redneck, is put your choice of small block V8, cut down Ford 9" rear end, and a 3 speed automatic.

You know the funny thing is, I have that identical seat. It’s the swivel seat on the front of my little 16’ aluminum fishing boat. Surprisingly, that one seems to be in better condition than mine.

They should have kept the lawn mower functionality, then it might be a TEENY bit practical.

Seems like the drift trike craze is going a little too far and people are making trikes out of anything with wheels. These are a couple that were posted locally...the one with the old lady on it, the ad was asking for $700 FIRM looks like its made out of electrical conduit.
