    I'm waiting on a luggage rack and for the shake down drive, but I should have it within a day or two.

    It started as a 2011 black Road King. It's a Hannigan trike kit with '57 Chevy colors, Sierra Gold and Adobe Beige.

    Great looking trike. How long have you been working on the conversion? Any motor upgrades?

    Who makes the conversion? Independent rear or solid?

    You really shouldn't ask about how long! I originally ordered the trike kit thru Trike Traders here in Florida from Hannigan for my Kawasaki Nomad back in February. Then the factory burned down where they stored their molds. After stringing me along for six months, they finally admitted they weren't going to re-do the Nomad mold.

    They were the only company offering a trike kit for that model. I traded the Nomad in on a Road King and re-ordered a trike kit, still with Hannigan.

    It's been a ten month process.

    It IS independent rear suspension. No engine upgrades yet.
