1800 conversion to trike

Post by fivekjack » Sun May 04, 2014 11:53 am

I have owned a Wing since they first came out in 1975. My present wing is a 2001 1800. I'm reaching the age (82) where handling my bike is becoming a concern. I'm looking for input concerning converting my Wing to a trike. Any advise, concerns, or general information will be appreciated. j

May I suggest an independent suspension conversion as they offer a better ride (IMHO).
Also to make the trike handle easier you would want to add 4.5 to 6 degrees of rake.
You have a PM.
