Kimjon's what's better than 13 drift trikes? ...14 of course...

Recommended Posts


So this ^ came up on trademe when I searched for a TAV 30 cvt. Someone started a neat little project, trying to make a wakeboard winch. But lacked the tools/skills to finish it. 

I was happy with just the motor, but looking at all the parts, its pretty much all you need to make a drift trike already...so yeah...why the fuck not eh.


A bit of figuring out and yip, I can make this work. The rotor is designed to fit on a wheel hub, but they're expensive, so I'm using this sprocket carrier off the winch drum. Saves buying an extra hub at $120/a pair.


Full send, no turning back now.



I cut a spigot into the mounting face to centralize the rotor (not shown). Then drilled new mounting holes.


Fuck yeah. Hydraulic brakes!!!


Here's some of the goodies off the wakeboard drum. I ordered a single hub to fit the axle and that's about all I need to buy.

More to come...
