    I really think they are all great choices. I love my 2012 with CSC Viper kit. Also have the 6 degree rake. It rides like a dream. As I have said many times before, the installer is key!!!

    Thanx to each of you for your information. It's very reassuring to hear from informed people who have done their research and made their selection.

    I'll be continuing to catalogue information and will move ahead with my final selection when back in Canada in mid-April. So if all goes well, I could be riding a trike by mid-June.

    Looking forward to receiving more input if you care to share your experience and your valuable time.

    I like my Champion but I do see many more CSC kits on wings in my area , my dealer instals both Wife just liked the looks of the Champion better , the plus on the CSC is trunk size and a tad wider. But I truely can not tell one from the other on ride or handling. The champion may turn in a little quicker if any thing.

    I just ordered a Roadsmith without the extra fuel tank. It is not as wide as the Hannigan thus easier to find a suitable smaller trailer. Also like the simplicity of the design without too many things to go wrong.

    Here is my opinion I installed a Roadsmith Kit on my 2009 Harley Ultra Classic which was the New Kit Body Roadsmith told me they were Developing Running Boards for my Kit a Year ago and they are still not available so beware when you order if you are like me and want Running Boards.

    You dredged up such an old thread I don't think a lot of folks noticed. I have personally tried out Roadsmith IRS, Hannigan IRS, Champion solid axle, Motor Trike solid axle and Can-Am Spyder RT. I pretty much only ride a trike two-up and the missus MUST be comfortable. I have not ridden a CSC conversion as I have been put off by posts regarding drive shaft issues in the past. There is a CSC installer just a few miles from where I live but have stayed away for that reason. I am sure there are bunches of folks who have not had a single problem. The reason for the thread you got into was the aux gas tank. That is why Champion, Motor Trike and Can-Am weren't in the picture.

    Since I have no first hand knowledge of CSC, only stuff I have heard on this board, I will let you do your own research regarding that conversion.

    The Champion solid axle conversion is less expensive but I found it to be very very well made, ride great and handle great. No aux gas tank. The Can-Am... well I just sold one after owning it for 6 months so won't say anything much more than that. I test rode a Motor Trike solid axle conversion with no EZ Steer (rake) and it was like sitting on a jack hammer and was difficult to steer. My missus also hated it. That leaves Hannigan and Roadsmith. Don't beat yourself up. Either company makes top notch kits and they are a bit longer in the wheelbase than most putting the rear axle out from under the pillion which greatly improves passenger ride. Fit and finish on both are top notch as is customer support.

    The main difference would be the installer in this case as either kit installed properly with the proper options would make you a happy camper. They are both also at the top of the price range. I would think that installers in the Jersey area have some demo units you could try... Look at cycletrader.com and there will be dealers in the area with trikes on the lot you could also test ride I suppose.
    Good luck!
