It had heavy fiberglass fenders and a steel 'fan mount' for the fenders. It is not a rigid but rode like one.

    Thanks Jim,

    Sure does look similar

    And they have a phone number... Yea! (wont believe the number of places that dont want to field calls - emails only)

    So I will call them to ask if they have fender mounts (Only see front fender mounts in website)

    Thanks again for your help!

    Default DNA trike conversion

    trike in Penn valley.jpg

    This is my DNA trike conversion and I did not build mine either. I have made a lot of changes. I have had a difficult time with the shock mounts.

    There are a lot of things that are hard to find to fit or fix what did not work in the first place.

    OK....was cleaning up the frame, getting ready to change the wheels (again) and to cut the shock mounts to move the shocks on, to raise the back part of the frame...

    And change the front triple trees from the 5 degree rake to 0 degree rake to raise the front of the frame...

    Found a nameplate "Custom Built by LA Cycles" with their VIN number.

    Trike runs great... apparently has almost no miles on it...

    I'll post updated pics after I receive all my parts this week.
