    Default Trike kits?

    Been looking at maybe trikin' the VTX (later on down the road when I can't hold 'er up any more). It looks like CSC, Hannigan, Champion, Motor Trike, DFT don't have a kit for the VTX. Does anybody know who does? Inquiring minds want to know. I liked the DFT, but they do Wings.

    Thanks dclark31. Apparently, I wasn't smart enough to look at a different page. You helped out a lot.

    There is a company " Trigg " or "Trig", something like that. I belive their kits or better others because, the wheels are set back 8 to 9" giving them a better look.

    My wife has an 1800 VTX with a Motor Trike kit. They might not make them any more, but I know they did at one time. Here my wife's:

    Yes, old thread - but didn't see the need to start a new one.

    I saw a friend of mine out for a ride the other day, and one of his friends had a Trigg "trike" kit.

    Very affordable (place in Alberta does them for $4000) - here's a pic of one on a VTX!

    Benefit is the bike still leans in corners and your drive train doesn't change - that is, you still use your rear motorcycle wheel for power.

    Made me wonder if, you changed your rear wheel to a CT - would you then belong to the "Triple Darkside" club?

    I've also got the Motortrike kit, mine is black/silver on an 1800R, and I put a Harley tour pack on it.

    Where did you get the idea Motortrike was out of business. Just had to Google Motortrike.

    Anyway, here's the link: http://www.motortrike.com/

    Don't know why they used that God awfull color on the VTS's, they really look beteer than the ad shows. Just remember when your looking at them, the trunks are not as big as they look.
