I know someone that took a Voyager kit off his Goldwing 1500 and installed it on his wifes 1200. he had to make some modifications to get it to work but it worked. So it can be done

Not these days, but there were conversions made. Lehman, Motor Trike, others, some no longer in business. I had one buddy wanted a 1200 trike, found a high mileage MT 1200 trike in an estate sale, bought it and t6ook it apart & converted his lower miles 1200 himself repainting, etc. Then he sold the remains. Unless you just have to have a 1200 trike, better to look for a already triked 1500.
