    Well... I change my project for the contest, because I haven't all parts I need to finish my trike...

    And for this project I'm just using all stuff and junk I have around my parent's house.

    I'm building a dragster. Inspired by the slingshot dragster.

    First I put, as usually, all on the floor.

    But the rear wheel was too big for me, so I'm using this wheel, 20" and 100mm wide.

    Today I weld together tubes to get all the structure done.

    And finaly some photoshop for my motivation !

    Awesome build! Been thinking of doing something like this for a while, but yours is looking better than anything I ever drew up! Awesome stuff!

    Well, I haven't worked on it yesterday...

    But I found a wide crankset to fit with the wide rear wheel !

    This is going to be very cool. I came across this 4 wheeled dragster 'bike' and thought how cool this would be but, your 2 wheeled dragster is a great idea and I think even more practical. Can't wait to see it on the road. :113:
