The growing demand for trikes has yielded some interesting conversion kits such as this new one from Tilting Motor Works that converts most Harley-Davidsons into a reverse trike with two wheels up front.
The base unit costs about $US10,000 while a roll-over stabiliser increases the price to $US13,000.
The Tilting Motor Works conversion kit includes new wheels, tyres, brakes, suspension and drivetrain.
It fits all Harleys except the V-Rod and is being adapted to fit the Honda Gold Wing.
The Seattle-based company is not the only one doing the tilting reverse trike conversion. The Scorpion Trikes kit costs about $US5000 and only fits the Harley V-Rod.
The growth in trikes is being spurred by ageing riders who want to continue to ride but can’t hold up a big touring bike and new mature-aged riders who don’t want to ride a motorcycle but want the thrill of the open air.
Trikes are in abundance at Australian motorcycle rallies such as the Ulysses Club.
