We consider a geometrical model of a broken interface showing self-propelling motion. This model is constructed to comprise a static solution with a spontaneous curvature. Furthermore, by introducing a nonlocal interaction force into the geometrical model, we show that the static solution causes spontaneous drift motion even when the nonlocal force is infinitesimal. This drift motion appears via transcritical bifurcation.
