Drift trikes are incredible fun, so why not make your own? It's easy enough, in fact, that you can do it with even the most basic of tools. Here's how...

Colin Furze is pretty handy in the workshop, so making a motorised drift trike isn't too difficult for him. But, can he make one only using basic tools, and not welding anything together at all? The answer, of course, is yes.

This how-to guide is perfect for anyone who likes to get their hands dirty. Colin explains each requirement, how he intends achieving the desired result and then puts it into action. He does it all from scratch, from chopping up a BMX to use its front-end for steering, to creating a chassis for the engine, driveshaft, seat and more.

It's a terrific video that'll inspire you to make yourself one of these 140cc bags of fun for sure. Plus, it's the perfect project for a beginner, shouldn't be hugely expensive, and will give you endless hours of enjoyment – both during the build and when you're doing 360's in the street once it's done.

I think you should watch the video below immediately, it'll make you realise anything is possible if you put your mind to it! Or, that you're completely useless when it comes to fabrication and that someone else should help. Either way, a 140cc drift trike... why the hell not!
