So I have been watching SFD Industries building their Drift Trike since they started back in 2014. I love the story of the owner and why he started the company. But when I watched their promo video I was SOLD!
Now again I love anything with wheels, but add a motor and things really get interesting!! So I have been determined to watch Craigslist and eBay to see if a used one pops up because although they are super cool the $3500 price tag for the “Stupid Fast” model just prohibited me from wanting to go all in.
Here is there custom builder on the SFD website http://www.sfdindustries.com/products/Big-Wheels/
So imagine my surprise when a brand new SFD Model popped up on eBay I had to jump on it. The seller was asking a super discounted price but I made a ridiculous offer that he surprisingly accepted. I mean how do you say no to this face!!??
Moral of the story this thing has a 196cc motor with exhaust and air filter kit, front and rear brakes, and a twist motorcycle type gas handle. The gas tank is in the middle and the seat is a lot larger than I thought it would be.
First pass realized that I need a wide open space to get the hang of it. I am excited to take this to a big parking lot in the next week or so. In the meantime I would have to recommend this thing to anyone who is wanting that different riding experience. I own mini bikes, dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, and this guy is a whole new way to ride.
