It's some time now since I have used the Triggs kit, as most of my riding is now on the full trike (93 1500) I enjoy so much. But the Trigg kit was ok for what it is. I understand they have now improved the kit, adding a lot more ridgidity (spelling) to it, and this would improve it on corners. Very hard for me to give a total cost to me, as can't remember the exchange rate when I bought it, as well as there were considerable freight charges, import duties and taxes. But after riding the 93 full trike, my advice would be to sell what your wife currently has, and add the proceeds to the current cost of the Triggs kit, and take her shopping for a good second hand trike. Sorry I can't be of more help. Cheers.

Wireguy51, I checked into this trike kit a few years back. They are sold by the company who makes them some where in Texas. I priced the kit for my bike which is an 85 Limited. The kit I looked at came with the reverse and painted to match my bike. All I would have to do is assemble and install it. The price to my door, including shipping, was only $5200. Which for me is way out of my price range. But at least I know that if the time does come that I need more than two wheels that there is something available. And who knows by the time that comes maybe I will be able to actually afford it. Lol! You can enter the name Trigg trike kit in your search engine box and start scrolling through the results. You will find the website and will be able to get all of your questions answered directly from the factory. I hope this helps. Take care and stay safe brother!
