Electric Drift Trike
Formua E asked me if I I could take an electric vehicle to the Rome Formula E Race to ride around their track. Having only my Mr Bean Armchair, the tools came out and an electric drift trike was created. I have previously made a motorised 125cc drift trike and this electric version is not to better it, but to add an alternative. Over the three years of the motorised version being on Youtube, I have been sent loads of pictures from people that have followed the build video to make their own and I hope that this build will also tempt people to create their own. This particular build is a pricey one (around £2000) however in the future I hope to build a no weld, cheeper version.
The front of the trike is made using a bike from the scrap yard and the back end was made from scratch to accommodate the motor and the batteries.
I bought a funky moulded seat.... because it looks cool!
