Hmmm So You THINK You Found A Better Deal?

Hmmm So You THINK You Found A Better Deal?

I hear it all the time "Your Trikes Are So expensive, you must be making a killing!!"

If you analyse what actually makes up a Lovett Industries "FAT DRIFTER" you will see there is a hell of a lot of work that goes into these trikes the from the Fully TIG welded frame to the amazing powder coated finishes all the way down to the billet Foot Rests and custom moulded seat.

So you think you can make it cheaper? well you probably can we dont run our business like a "Red Cross soup kitchen" giving everyone "FAT DRIFTER'S" at material ONLY cost would just be silly.

"But I Found One Cheaper that looks EXACTLY the same?" The reality is there are plenty of Motorised Big Wheel Drift Trike's out there that may appear to be similar looking BUT Lovett Industries are the Pioneers of Motorised Big Wheels in Australia, all the trikes we sell are backed by us and we have heaps of customers all over Australia that keep coming back to us because WE ARE THE BEST!!!

"Pffft I Can make that for $500 Easily!!!" Really you think you can? ok then please price up all these components and tell me what price you come up with ;)

-3mm x 25mm Chromoly Tubing @ 6 Metres Frame Fully TIG WELDED
-Billet Twist Throttle
-Throttle Cable
-212cc 7hp 4 stroke Motor

IF you can even source all those parts please tell me what costing you come up with, ALSO remember we are a business and need to make profit otherwise what is the point of selling trikes?

DONT FORGET Things we have to pay like GST and all the other taxes, Insurances etc etc

We are not a charity and if you can make the trikes cheaper that is great go and give it a crack.

With a Big wheel that weighs 63kg's the components we were originally using were from "FAT BIKES" we would basically rob the complete front end from a bike and custom fab a frame to suit.

These components were only ever designed for "BICYCLES" not for use with a Motorised Big Wheel.

The main "FORK STEERER" tube is only 1-1.5mm thick this is all good for a bike that weighs 10-15kgs.

But when using these forks on a Motorised Big Wheel, there are more forces applied that affect strength and structure of the standard "FAT BIKE" Fork.

We learnt some Hard lessons at the start and we have totally changed the way our "Motorised Big Wheel Drift Trike's" are made.

Our current range of "Big Wheel Trike's" has a totally custom designed fork, the "FORK STEERER" is made from Solid Round Bar, so there is NO way these bad boys will be breaking anytime soon!!!

So NEXT time you see another "Big Wheel" that is cheaper than ours, ask yourself, Do i really want something that will eventually fatigue and SNAP?

Here is a 2 simple questions that you SHOULD ask when purchasing a "Big Wheel Drift Trike"

1. Do you use standard "Fat Bike" Forks or are your forks "Custom"
2. Do you purchase "Fat Bike's" and Rob the front ends to use on your trikes

If they answer "YES" to any of these questions, one would suggest to give it a miss.

So you want to know why ours are more $$$ than other trikes, check out the pictures below, and lets compare "SNOT" with How a "REAL" Fork setup should look like

Lovett Industries and Motorized Drift Trikes Who and What Are they?

It all started in late 2014, i was on my local FB buy and sell page “Bidding Wars Bunbury” just skipping through looking at what everyone was selling, my eye was fixated on this thing, i had never seen anything like it before but i was curious to know more.
The thing that caught my eye was a Feat of “Boganeering” It was half Huffy Slider and Half GoKart, It looked like so much fun, but it also looked like something that was probably made for an 8 year old kid not a 28 year old bloke, but before i could buy it, i tagged my wife in the FB post for approval, she said “That Looks Like Fun” to me that meant “Yes, you can buy it”
I was working offshore at the time and contacted the seller, we struck a deal and the “Motorized Big Wheel Drift Trike” was ALL mine. I couldn't wait to get home and give it a crack. 
When i first saw this Motorized Drift Trike in the flesh i was like “Hell Yeah, this looks sick as!!!” I fired the Motorised Big Wheel Drift Trike up and took it for a spin……WOW! i was hooked, sliding around corners just inches off the ground, executing 360’s but only getting to 180 degrees LOL. The feeling was surreal and it was like a drug , I just had to have more.
I then started searching the internet for other designs that guys had come up with, i found a “Motorized Big Wheel Drift Trike” made in the USA by another manufacturer. It looked pretty cool but i thought “I could do better”
So i began manufacturing "Custom 1 OFF” Motorized Big Wheel Drift Trikes, I have a Mechanical Background as a Diesel Mechanic and also am pretty good with a TIG Welder. My wife was head of the design team and came up with some funky designs for me to fabricate.
After getting swamped with orders at Collie Gazzanats 2015, we decided get cracking with our custom 1 off designs. 
We now have an Online Store and we sell our Current range of Motorized Big Wheel Drift Trikes , All over Australia from Darwin to Tasmania and everywhere in between.
So If you're looking for a REAL Motorized Big Wheel Drift Trike, that goes harder than the rest, looks 110% better and is very reasonably priced, then you have found the RIGHT place, we offer our "Motorized Big Wheel Drift Trikes" at an awesome price and you can be assured that we will provided support to all our Past Present and Future customers.
