    Default So we went down to Fayetteville for Blues Bikes and BBQ

    Had a nice talk with the reps from Indian at their display.

    I did ask why they didn't make a trike like the tri glide.

    The spokesman said they did make a trike.

    IE the slingslot, and Im sure my answer that is a three wheel car

    is something he had heard before.

    He said it wouldn't make sense to make a trike like the tri glide

    that would compete with the slingshot.

    There was some more small talk.

    At this point in the conversation, I gave up.

    First, future purchasers who are looking at a traditional style trike are not going to look at a slingshot.

    Second, I have yet to meet any tri glide owners who own a slingshot.

    Third, It would be a lot easier to get a bank loan on a used trike if it is listed factory vehicle in that little book they use

    to determine value.

    Fourth, if they don't want to make it, make a deal with a trike company to do the conversions and call them a factory Indian conversion

    So, Im still looking for that retirement present in January when I retire......
    The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    I've been talking to two different Indian Dealers one in Florida and the other in Illinois. Both have a deal with trike converters who will handle the whole process. You give them all the specs. and they (Indian Dealer) handle the whole process.

    It is still a conversion with all the bank issues - assigning values for loans, warrantee issues - who works on what and insurance issues - not all companies cover conversions. A true factory trike does avoid all of those.

    Then your only option is a Harley Triglide modern version of it's old 50s servi-car.
