    Default What would it cost to replace your trike as it sits?

    Someone recently told me how much they loved their newly converted trike and asked me what I thought the average trike owner had invested in his or her trike. This person had just converted their CVO Harley Ultra and had just over $50k in the bike and accessories and spent another $25K in converting it with all the bells and whistles and matching CVO custom paint. This is far above the norm, but its probably not as uncommon as you would think.

    The price of your trike really doesn't equate to the amount of enjoyment you will get from it, this is not about that, its just a poll to gather information.

    So the questions is, what would it cost to replace your trike as it sits including the trike itself, or bike + conversion + all the accessories, performance mods, paint, tax, etc, etc?

    This poll does not list the voter's screen name so you can be honest just in case the wifey is looking.

    Below is a page posted on my local Honda dealer, Cycle Shack North's wall I thought I'd share, made me laugh. I changed the word Bike to Trike.

    I have no problems with money spent and keeping it from Wifey. It was her idea too purchase the Tri-Glide; she wrote the check. She knew going in I would be spending aftermarket money on it. History does repeat itself

    I gave the dealer my 11T/G Plus my 15 Gunner....And 10 grand...

    And the only thing i added to the 17 was a 158$ adjustable clutch lever...

    When I had my Goldwing and Voyager unit, it was an inexpensive buy. The Voyager was used and came off a GL1500 Goldwing and then the Goldwing came along a month later and then I put it all together. I think I had close to $10,000.00 in Baby the Goldwing.

    How much my trike cost is hard to figure out.

    I built my own VW trike

    If I would have done everything right the first time it would have been a lot cheaper.

    I went through 3 different carb/intake setups.

    I built several different front ends

    2 different custom front fenders

    2 engine builds

    and so on

    For a lot of the build I did not have any support like this forum and another I used to go to

    Now that I am a member here getting help and advise beforehand is a lot easier and it is helping a lot on my new build
    Thank you

    I built my trike in 1972. I maybe have a 1000 in it. Its been updated in some areas but basically the same. Worthless to some priceless to me. Money equal love? Love equal money? Doesn't compute for me.

    Love is just a term of endearment and maybe too strong a word, so I changed the thread title
