    My first trike was a DFT kit installed on a Harley Sportster. I really enjoyed that trike.

    It was at the very beginng of the Trike kits. I think is a well made with the parts are machined perfectly.

    Can't WAIT to get home next month and pick mine up!

    They dont get much better (for me anyway) than a late model GL1500 (98SE)

    now the DFT kit, from what others are saying I think I'm gonna be happy I lucked onto it

    Will report back with my thoughts after I get it and have logged a few miles on it

    Picture below, looks as good or better than the HDs there...LOL

My husband was able to complete a rear brake job himself. Can't say enough good stuff about them!!!
    Can I ask about the rear brake pads replaced on how to do it

    Default 1998 FXD DFT - so far it's awesome!

    I bought my 98 Dyna last September. After a bad wreck in July caused me to have my hip replaced I decided it was time for the trike or a side hack. Glad I found this trike. I put a raked set of trees on it because i didn't like how the front end felt. Highly recommended. Other than that, so far, no problems. It took a bit of adjustment mentally to adjust to the differences between riding the trike and a 2 wheeler. Seemed like I was fighting through curves. Did some reading and asked some questions and now I'm jamming through curves almost as fast as I would before.

    I've only been able to put about 500 miles on so far, but I'm really looking forward to my trips this summer, beginning with Rolling Thunder on Memorial Day weekend.

    Bought our 2006 GL1800 Goldwing DFT in January 2008 with barely 10,000 miles in the clock. Just turned over 128,000 this week. “The Beast”, as we loving call her, has been ridden from our home in Texas to all 49 states that have roads to them and nearly all of the Canadian Provinces. Only issue was a blown wheel bearing at 102,000 miles. I don’t call that a problem!😬

    We are getting ready to get a newer trike and it will be another DFT!
