Goldwing Reverse Trike
I have made a couple post on here about my reverse trike conversion I was building and some of you wanted to see some photos of the trike when I finished it. Well it is not finished yet but close enough to show a couple photos.
I have been doing some riding to test everything out and so far everything looks good. I have never had a trike before so I am getting use to the new feel of not leaning the bike. It rides very smooth and takes very little effort to steer it. I went on a short 200 mile ride in the mountains Sunday and did not notice any tiring of my arms.
I started the conversion with a 2005 ABS model and built a complete new front end with coil over shocks, a-arm suspension and Wilwood disk brake on the front. I hand crafted a complete bolt on new front fiberglass body that bolts to the stock Goldwing dash and shelter. I also built some short running boards to help keep the water off my feet if I get caught in the rain. Everything from the dash and wind shield back is all stock Goldwing.
One of the things I did with this kit is to make it a complete bolt on system. No welding, drilling or grinding on the stock frame. If you ever get tired of the trike, all you have to do is unbolt the kit and bolt all the stock front bike parts back on and you are back to two wheels again.
I still have some body work to finish on the front and more testing this winter. Not sure I like the front body design yet but I had to start with something. Let me know what you think of the basic concept.
What would you change if you were going to buy one.
