A Motorized Tricycle

Dec 15, 2015 By Houston Barber

Colin Furze is an inventor known for turning the imaginary into real life. His latest work might just be his best of all. Colin took a children’s tricycle and turned it into something straight out of the X-Games. By strapping a motor to the trike and modulating the wheels, he was able to get it to travel at speeds of over 50 mph. 

Colin’s goal is to get others to emulate his invention. On his website, Colin writes "I get a lot of emails asking about first projects and projects for school/college exams I've settled in my mind that this is that project as it blends a lot of skills but at their very basic levels." To learn how to make your own, you can watch his instructional video.
