• Roadsmith Unveils First Indian Roadmaster Trike

    White Bear Lake, MN (October 20, 2014) - Trike industry icon, Roadsmith Trikes, brings the first Indian Roadmaster Trike onto the market with their recent introduction of this much anticipated model. Following on the heels of Roadsmithís already popular Chieftain trike, the new Roadmaster, with the addition of its large trunk, passenger backrest, adjustable floorboards and heated seat, promises to deliver the larger storage capacity and passenger comfort necessary for serious two-up touring.

    Known for their many original innovations in the trike industry, such as independent rear suspension and a longer wheelbase, Roadsmith has once again applied their trike design expertise to capture and complement the spirit and elegance of the new Indian Roadmaster. Complete with integrated ABS for maximum stopping power, raked triple trees for ease of steering and electric reverse to ensure smooth, quiet operation when backing, the new Indian Roadmaster Trike promises to lead the way in long-distance touring safety and comfort on three wheels.

    In business for more than 42 years, Roadsmith Trikes is based in White Bear Lake, MN where it manufactures and distributes a wide variety of trike conversion kits for Honda, Harley-Davidson, Indian and Victory motorcycles. They are also represented by well over a hundred dealers in the U.S., Canada and key locations throughout the world.

      That really is a nice fit for the Indian.
      I wouldn't mind throwing a leg over it.
      Heck it may even compliment a Harley If it were done right.

      I have enough trouble removing a tire doe's the fender skirt come off?

      Is that the speakers I see in a black color under the passenger backrest? I would like them to be brown if it were mine.

      The black kinda takes away the affect for me?

      Good looking ride for sure. Just being a pita I think the tail lights are to high on the fender. I think I would like them better level with the tag. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW. Another great job guys.

      Love the look of the Indian Trike! it does look like it would be a pain to remove the rear tires. A lot of lifting to do so. I hope they put enough Torgue in their motors to pull all that weight. it sure is pretty!

      If they are selling them, Its not in my area .....If I've see two or three on the road since Polaris brought them back from the dead that's a lot.... I had a Victory so i know how if a line of theirs isn't doing well they will 86th it...I'm sure they are thinking of ending the Slingshot line.........

    Either way the antenna on a bike is just troublesome at best. I have a ground antenna on my Indian and range is nothing like my car. Very short in comparison.

    Besides the steering head bearings, another possibility could be tires. Check the condition of all 3 tires. You could be experiencing tread separation.

    There are several things it could be. Including, steering head bearings. But if you didn't experience the wobble before, then I agree to check the last

    Well if you're letting go of the bars don't do that. Low speed head shake is pretty common. Never let go of the bars.
