1995 gl1500se trike conversion

Post by Mr.Goob »



I purchased a 1995 1500 se trike about 3-weeks ago, man had passed away 6-yrs earlier, it has 51,000 miles on it, and.it is in good condition, some might even say excellent, anyway my question is, how do i determine what brand conversion it is ? Cant find anything but i might not know where to kook, it has drum brakes and
I want to change it to disc, it's a 4- lug wheel,just curious what all it will take you do , and if it's even worth it

Post some pictures and I'm sure someone here can identify it. From what I understand they were often build with Ford rear ends. Shouldn't be too hard to fit discs to it.

Yes, post some pics. If solid axle I would bet on a motor trike conversion. I'll try and post pics of my 1990 motor trike. I believe California side car was and is popular and Hannigan.
