Crankset on, but I’m not off and triking

So I met a new buddy online (drie wiel- via youtube) who’s helping me to figure out the pedals. He gave me an idea for keeping the crankset or bottom bracket of the bike attached to my trike. I carried out the idea (which is shown below). I tried to pedal the trike, but it does up to about a 1/2 of a revolution before it feels like I’m trying to push a ton of bricks with my right foot. I’m thinking I need to make the main frame stronger. I’m going to have to buy a 2″ aluminum frame and build again…

Pics are below of the bottom bracket being held by u- clamps and the trike that won’t move…
