that depends on the kit you choose and who you have do the work
a real trike conversion will prob run around 9 to 12K for the basic conversion

You could possibly get another 1500 already triked for less than the cost of triking yours. Have a look.

Prices are good, but they are USD & that's 30% > here in Canada. There's also the issue of getting it. 'Sides, I've never even ridden a trike, so not sure if I'd like it or not.

You can always look around online for some place that rents trikes, then take a vacation there and rent one. The other choice would be to get to a really large rally, like WingDing or Americade, where companies have trike rides to advertise their trike conversions. Other than that, I believe, in Canada, the low estimate of 9K should move up to 12, with a high of 16K or so. All the kit companies are U.S. companies, so they want their reimbursement in their kind of money, which was okay when dollars were par, but now a Canuck needs to have a money tree to buy big stuff in American dollars. A friend of mine had his GL1500 triked about four years ago and it cost him 13K at a shop in Ottawa.
