      Hi, Have not had a vn2000 in our shop yet. I will see if they are different than the 1700 frame. I think they are. I will let you know. Thanks for your interest. Tom

      Here's a question for you, I have a 2003 GL1800 with a Roadsmith Kit with the Wing Guards. I don't see how that frame work will go under the trike and clear the Guards.... Yours would be more substancial at 500# but don't think they will fit... attached photos of the area and the Kuryakan Mini Boards I'm using with S/S Bolt (1) at 290 # no problem so far... Advise....

      What about your board adjusted up in height that will use the stock Pin Mount that the pegs and the Heel toe Shifter have in common... maybe it could be made height adjustable as I have a weak leg from a stroke....

      How much does this cost and what is the weight restriction. Can it be mounted on the right side of the trike as I have an artificial left leg which only allows me to get on, on the right side. Can I get this in Alberta Canada??
