Reverse trike F6B

Post by Ryleyboy »



Has anyone done the reverse trike conversion? I have a 2015 F6B which is great but recently diagnosed with some Parkinson’s issues like balance which affects low speed handling. I am thinking of a trike conversion for the F6B possibly a reverse setup like Motor trike Prowler RT or the Sturgis kit since the F is paid for and resale is not great.
Has anyone had experience with this type of setup? Does lack of reverse gear in the F6B cause major issues?
Not sure I want to give up riding yet.

Try this place. endeavortrikes.com/ He makes a good one and is cheaper than most. He has done a few without a reverse gear. Give him a call and talk to him about it.

I like the look Glen. How do you find handling? He has not built one for Canada yet so I don’t know if there are border issues that I would face.

He is building mine now, so I don't know yet. The picture is of one in Utah, I talked to him and he loves it.
I don't know anything about Canada. You are not getting a new bike, only adding to the one you have. So it may not matter when you cross back over the boarder.
The bike in the picture belongs to Pooch, he is on the GL1800riders.com site. Go over there and look him up. He was very happy to talk to me about his bike.

I know of 3 reverse trike kits available for 5th gen wings. The companies that make them are Motortrike, Hannigan, and Tilting Motor Works. Of those 3, I've only worked on and rode a Motortrike. If I recall, I liked the ride, but was really turned off by the wide turning radius.
