Richland trike kit

I'm looking at a 97 with a Richard trike kit. What are your thoughts and are there any safety concerns with this kit.

I'm sure you're aware this is not a trike kit. It adds 2 "outrigger" wheels to the bike.
My experience with these outriggers was not a good one. Steering is very difficult unless you add a rake kit to the front.
The ride was less than desired. Inside wheel can lift in a tight, at speed, corner.
If, however, this is the only type of help one can afford and need to keep riding, then go for it.
If one can afford a true trike conversion, I would suggest a test ride on one w/IRS before making your decision.
