    Default Ever remove a Lehman trike kit

    I have a bad motor on the wife's trike. (03 Volusia Intruder) and I'm thinking of buying a newer fuel injected model C-50 and swapping over the trike kit. Just wondering if anyone here had ever taken on a project like this, and if so, what, if any obstacles did you encounter.

    Thanks Al.

    Not a Lehman or C-50, do know a fella did it with his well kept GL-1200 and a high miles "sat out in the weather" GL-1200 Motor Trike he got cheap.

    Al,

    The trike kit is easily swapped and everything will fit from the VL800 onto the C-50.

    Be aware that the spacers, brackets and braces added by Lehman must be re-used to protect the frame integrity.

    The driveshaft must be phased (aligned) when re-installed.

    Make sure that you grease the suspension linkage.

    Good Luck
