It's a Chainsaw Powered Tricycle!

*Brakes not included.

  • What do you get when you combine a chainsaw with a tricycle? A chainsawtrike!

    A group of engineering students at Georgia Tech are gaining attention over their latest invention - a super charged child's tricycle featuring a chainsaw motor.

    Ah, college: that magical time of life when you get to use a spot welder unsupervised.

    In a video posted to YouTube, the master builders behind the chainsaw trike detail how they adapted a children's toy into a gas guzzling hot rod.

  • Considering the lack of breaks, breaking chains, and the fact that grown men where trying to fit onto a trike made for toddlers, there were quite a few kinks to work out.

    In no time, the masterminds behind this chainsawtrike were riding all over campus! They even built a second chainsaw-powered toy: a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe, with a convertible top… so fancy.

    I wonder what else these guys will find to stick a chainsaw motor too. The thought is equally intriguing and terrifying.

    Would you take a spin on this gas-powered trike? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
