If you go to http://www.oldminibikes.com there are posts in the forum under engine Honda/clone about modifications. The forum has a link near the top in a small red box.

Wait a minute - I see a Brake drum in that last picture - REALLY??? A BRAKE DRUM (*satirical emphasis) That looks to be a 3 hrp engine with minimal frame - you're gonna need an anchor on a heavy chain to stop :applause: :thumbsup:

Brakes we don't need no stinking brakes. Lol its actually a band brake and the engine is a 6.5 Hp and don't forget the rear tires will be covered with Pvc pipe to make things really interesting. .

Rear brakes are just there to start your slide at times. Touch your rear brakes start'r sliding then get on the gas and steer it with the gas just like the dirt trackers would do. Or just turn the front and romp the gas . I'm waiting for my computer to download over 1400 pictures ( I guess that I have not done it in awhile ) and I should have some photos of mine in the building process. All of my teardrop pictures are in there too. I will soon be able to start posting :pictures:

For a serious drift trike, you may like this:

That was once a 50cc Italian three-wheel delivery truck, but that sounds/looks like a substantial motorcycle engine has been put in the back and, no, it didn't have the great big rear axle originally....
