Reverse

I have an 84 Aspencade with a trike kit. Is there a kit to add reverse that anyone knows of?

I've heard of people building things like that - usually with an electric motor that either contacts one of the wheels, or engages (using friction) the driveshaft. But I've never seen a production kit.

It's feet powered, and it doesn't work well with large aquashield like floor boards.

The good ol’ Flintstones method does work, but sucks when you can’t park on a downhill to roll back out of. Lol

Even when on the trike which is a 1500 with reverse, I park the bike / trike keeping in mind the exit.

If a downhill spot, I'll whip around and drift back in (after a check around to make sure my "whip around" doesn't put me in danger of becoming a hood ornament).

If it's a upward inclined spot, I'll just pull in and then drift backwards>>> "out".
