There's always something new and intriguing left sitting on the deck whenever Local Motors news washes over the Autoblog transom. Lest you think the company only deals in wild off-road tackle like the Rally Fighter, 'tis not the case: it sells the SoulArc skateboard and the Laser Bike Lane Light, the crowd-sourced motorcycle design is now for sale. It also just successfully funded the Local Motors Cruiser, a motorized bicycle. This time, we get the spirit of Big Wheels and Green Machines past in a drift trike for adults with the crowd-sourced name Verrado. At the end of the BMX fork up front is a 20-inch mag wheel, at the back are two go-kart wheels wrapped in plastic sleeves for easy oversteer.
Old-school drift trikers will be able to get their Verrado as pictured, ready for all the downhill action they can stand. New-school "flatlanders" can get a Verrado with a 36-volt battery pack mounted between the rear wheels that powers a hub motor for something like an hour of urban fun. We wouldn't mind seeing a True OG version with pedals hung off that front axle, but for now, you can watch the motorized Verrado do some heavy pulling and drifting in the video below.
