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 ;)

We are not a charity and if you can make the trikes cheaper that is great go and give it a crack.
Our trikes are QUALITY, ENGINEERED, MASTERPIECES
WANT TO KNOW WHAT SETS OUR BIG WHEELS APART FROM THE COMPETITION?????......... READ ON ;)
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
SNOT!!! THAT BACKYARD BUILDERS USE!!!
