So are you saying the painting of the fenders is $1600? Or the whole trike conversion?
Are you using the kits sold by CSC, Motortrike, Champion, etc? Or building your own conversions from scratch?

These are "outriggers" not trike conversions!
Interested in learning about this type add-on that is much cheaper than a Voyager or a Tow Pac but, can't find a web sight?????????????

Outriggers are not a "trike conversion".
A "trike conversion " has 2 wheels with a drive axle in the back replacing the stock swingarm and bike wheel assembly.

Hello, Yes, Technically speaking you are correct. But people seem to want to call all of them "Trikes" although the bolt on conversions are actually "Quads"

No, I do not use any of the "marketed" kits. This is a design my me, tested for two years on numerous bikes before I made it available for purchase or installation on anyone elses bike. The price of the complete conversion on your bike, with the frame, hubs, brackets, polished aluminum wheels, matching paint to your bike (as close as I can get it) and ready to run down the road is about $1600.00 I'm retired and I do this as a hobby, I do not have a fancy shop, employees and lots of overhead.
I build one bike at a time, I have but one guarantee, "If you don't like it, bring it back after your test ride and I will remove it and refund your money". I do not have a website, you can find me on Facebook, or use the information posted and I will send you a flyer.
