Trikes are three-wheeled motorcycles that offer the rider stability and versatility. Trikes are attention getters and are seen more often on the roads today than ever before.
Trikes come in a all styles, colors and horsepower. Conversion kits are purchased and installed on conventional two-wheeled motorcycles and the kit can be either installed by the cycle owner himself or added on by the dealer that the kit was purchased from.
Custom trikes can be anything from a flashy and chrome-covered ’showboat’ on three wheels, with an added seat for a passenger to a plainer, more basic unit with just the single seat.
Trikes are made by taking say, a Gold Wing motorcycle that you purchase for $15 to $20,000 and have a conversion done that can cost you $9,000 or higher. The rear wheel and saddlebags are removed and the rear section is bolted on that consists of two wide wheels, a differential, new driveshaft, fenders and rear trunk. Then it is painted to match the color of the motorcycle. If you didn’t know differently, you’d swear that it came directly from a Honda motorcycle factory. They are that well-done and integrated.
You can purchase a fully customized trike, complete with independent suspension, installed with rims, tires and fenders from specialists in the field for a starting price of several thousand dollars.
You can spend as much as you want on your custom trike, with prices going well into the tens of thousands of dollars for a super-sleek and deluxe trike that is 100% unique and ready to ride.
Wide back seats can be incorporated, or perhaps you don’t want a rear seat at only, only a wide storage compartment to carry your luggage.
