Slide Stars 1st Gravity Drift Trike !!

This trike build was to get my first Disc brake nailed  and use a 1 1/8 fork utilising the standard Huffy frame except for the “drop and stretch” .

Still utilising the Slide Star axle kit but this time I used a Aldi Green and Mean rear axle.

There is some bling on this trike including the Avid Elixir’3 fluid set up with Shimano quick release hub and Hayes 203mm stopper, Easton Vice headset and PRO frs bars with JetBlack blue grips, pegs are by G-sport and the self assembled blue alloy 20″rim is shod in a Maxxis Miracle 1.80″ for streamline low air drag as opposed to the 2.10″ I usually run.

This trike uses a 1″ 1/8 fork I grabbed off a BMX I had laying around, held in place with Slide Stars signature fork bearing mounts and deco bearings.

This was a late night project thought through and engineering elements from Steve K !!
