it's only money... what else 'r you gonna do with it?

That is one sweet looking trike :) I bet he has close to 10k in her not counting the bike her self.:eek:
I read elsewhere, goofers got about 12k in that thing. Thats about right, he did a self install and the kit required some cutting n welding.. I think.

There is a trike kit mfg, I think here in texas that makes a bolt on kit w/body for the v2k. It is a solid axle not independant suspension like goofy's "mystery design" brand.

Most kits are closer to $7k for the chassis n body. Add nother 3k for 'lectric reverse & raked steering head. Add $2k for install, many mfg require a dealer.

I got hosed and had to shell 'nother $3k for the factory to fix the dealer f'ups.

am looking at a new TRIO set of wheels for some the lady's and kids who want to learn to ride my bikes. check this out www.piaggiousa.com

alterior motive; after studying this front end design up close n personal, I think to see if it can be ported over to a "real motorcycle". maybe the guzzi and then later a scaled up version for a big hammer. out, ponch

Sorry missed this post. Ponch is right about 12k is what I have in mine but I have no reverse when i sat on her and pushed she rolled real easy so I stopped the never ending search for reverse. the triple tree was the hardest to find for the VN2000. I have the website from the guy who did mine if anyone wants it ( I am not sure if I can post his web here or if it is against the forum rules) either way he hooked me up on some sexy trees. So thru all the trials and tribulations I ask myself would I do it again ?...... hummmm YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT.
