This is a 1990 GL1500 with a trike kit. I thought it was a Lehman kit but now I'm not sure. Any suggestions.

A ittle more info. It has a rear swing arm that attatches to the out side of the bike frame. It is shaft drive and the rear diferental is in the center of the axel. The drive shaft angles over the the left side of the bike. It has drum brakes and no parking brake. It uses two airfilled goldwing rear shocks for the rear suspension. It does not have independant rear suspension.

The bike has a leaking right wheel seal and we need to know what rear end this is to order a wheel seal. I'm have not looked at the rear end to see if there is any name or part number on it.

I'm not able to look at the rear end as it is at a different location 45 miles away.

I will get my uncle to look at the rear end closer for a name or model number later today.

Thanks for your help

James

Looks like an early Motor Trike unit.

Thanks, I have sent Motor Trike an e-mail asking if it is one of theirs.
