Three-Year-Old Whose Tricycle Was Stolen Gets Surprised With Mini Motorcycle From Biker Dad

Exclusive to Happily

A three-year-old boy left devastated when his tricycle was stolen could not hide his excitement when he was surprised with an electric motorcycle, allowing him to be just like his biker dad.


Mavrick Salazar, from Friendswood, Texas, loves riding on his father Emit’s motorcycle – and having been given a tricycle by his grandma for Christmas, the three-year-old was able to emulate his dad when riding outside his home.

But in March of this year, Mavrick was left heartbroken when his beloved trickle was stolen, leading him to ask his parents where it had gone regularly.

Over the weeks that followed, Mavrick had to make do with riding his sister’s balance bike – all while his parents were planning a special surprise for the youngster.

Mavrick was encouraged to head outside his home, where his dad presented him with an electric version of a motorcycle.

The three-year-old couldn’t hide his joy, immediately heading to the bike, which his father then showed him how to use, given that he was not used to an electric throttle.


In what was a proud moment for dad Emit, a fearless Mavrick got on the bike and took off right.

So confident was the youngster that his father had to chase him down the street in a wholesome moment that was captured on video.

Emit later posted a video of the surprise on social media, where it received more than six million views and was shared more than one hundred thousand times.


Emit, 37, said: “It took about an hour for him to realize he could twist the adjustable throttle and then there was no stopping him.

“I was proud of him when he took off on his own – and there was a little fear when I realized he wasn’t going to stop.

“It was exciting when I caught him because I still got it on video, and I couldn’t stop laughing when he didn’t want to stop because I was proud of him and how independent he is.

“When he first saw the bike, I was happy seeing him happy because I know how much he loves motorcycles, and now he has one that looks like his daddy’s bike.


“He rides it every day.”
