    Default '05 Venture Royal Star Trike

    Currently at National Powersport in Concord, New Hampshire. $250 down to hold it. Being serviced. Last call was to replace rear shock (stock or trike kit...not sure). Has to be CUSTOM BUILT(?). Anyone have experience with this particular bike or kit??? This belonged to Jonesy from Springfield, Mass.

    Looks like a Triwing conversion and those come out of Canada. http://www.islandnet.com/~triwing/

    If you are asking about the bike itself, I owned a 2005 Royal Star and it was a wonderful bike. The V-4 engine is ultra-smooth and has plenty of power. They are liquid cooled which translates into: you can ride it hard fully packed with two people all day and it doesn't even begin to get hot. I think they would make a great trike.

    Just did some research here on TrikeTalk and found the following:

    Jonesy was a member who posted on TrikeTalk from the year 2010.

    The bike is an ‘05 Yamaha Venture

    The trike kit is a 2010 Triwing kit

    See this: Under the TrikeTalk Forum “Yamaha Trikes”, thread: “Opinions on the Triwing Conversion”, date 9/20/15, 9:40am, post #5. It says he is happy with the kit but having a problem with the airbags - had replacement - problem with it too.

    Jonsey was a friend, my wife and I are friendswith his wife Linda. I can tell you that Jonsey and a friend of his built this trike and it was done right. From what I can remember it uses the stock center mount shock and two air bag shocks. I believe he replaced the stock shock some time back.
