I just went to my credit union and told them I was going to trike my Goldwing. She had no idea what a Goldwing was. She obtained the NADA book and looked up the value. I will put about $4k down and finance the remainder on the value of the bike. This was 1:30 pm. By 4 pm, the loan was in my account. Now I can go ahead with the order and wait till the end of the month for the conversion.

Re: HOW DID YOU FINANCE YOUR TRIKE KIT

I've had a few of our customers mention they did it as an RV loan. Better rate, longer terms? I don't know for sure. Sometimes we build 'em for "Free!" At least that's the way it feels

Re: HOW DID YOU FINANCE YOUR TRIKE KIT

I went and found out how much the trike kit was going to cost installed and went to my banker and refinanced my home. I also lowered the interest rate on the rest of my home loan. I killed two birds with one stone.

The question was on financing, not which trike was being financed!

Re: HOW DID YOU FINANCE YOUR TRIKE KIT

I sold magazines door to door, mowed lawns and cleaned stables. I was still several thousand $$ short so I married a rich widow. (j/k of course) I was fortunate enough to be able to pay for mine by selling other toys I had accumulated over time. I have a couple of friends who financed their's. One borrowed against his 401K, the other used his car.

Re: HOW DID YOU FINANCE YOUR TRIKE KIT

Harley Davidson Finance will finance a trike kit if when you are buying a bike from a dealer, new and used. We are right next door to the Harley Shop in Raleigh and as a result we mostly trike Harley's. Don't know if they do this for all the kits, but I know they do them for the DFT Trikes.

So far, none of the Honda dealers or Honda have stepped up to the plate as far as financing goes.

But these Harley riders sure do inspect my GW 1800.
