• Roadsmith Unveils New Auxiliary Fuel Tank Option for Harley-Davidson Touring

    White Bear Lake, MN (February 10, 2015) – Roadsmith Trikes unveiled an all new auxiliary fuel tank option at the V-Twin Dealer Expo in Cincinnati, and at the Minneapolis Progressive International Motorcycle Show this past weekend. Roadsmith’s new option will be of utmost importance to the true touring trike rider, featuring a full 3-gallon fuel capacity and separate filler neck allowing for long distance range and rapid fill. The system also features an “on-the-fly” transfer system, with the push of a button, all 3-gallons can transfer to the main tank in a matter of minutes. This new option is poised to not only allow the rider to go the extra mile, but more importantly offer a peace of mind knowing that fuel will no longer limit the adventure. The auxiliary tank retails for $799 and is designed for the 2009 and newer Harley-Davidson based trike conversions for the company’s flagship HDTR model. For more than 40 years, Roadsmith Trikes has been designing and producing some of the best engineered, best handling trikes in the business. Based in White Bear Lake, MN, Roadsmith manufactures and distributes 19 different trike conversion kits for Honda, Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles. They are represented by over a 100 Roadsmith dealers in the U.S. and Canada as well as their own retail location, The Trike Shop, on Beach Street in Daytona Beach, FL.

    No, your friend is not blind. We changed to sealed u-joints on our driveshafts several years ago. Why? Because (unlike GWNut) many owners did not grease

    Prior to the spring of 2016, all Roadsmith GL1800 trike conversions had unlinked brakes. Meaning the front lever controlled the front brakes only, and

    I have an 08 with a 2012 RS conversion also, and I have been told they were not linked on that year of Kit. Newer ones may be linked. Not sure. Good
