    Rick,

    If it has Wilwood rear disc brakes, make sure that the rear differential has been greased regularly.

    Most of the rear components are available but that particular differential does require greasing.

    The body transition panels (elephant ears) are prone to coming loose, so you should have a security strap added so that you don't lose it or it doesn't get removed when you aren't looking.

    The Trinity (looks like a tri-glide) is IRS rear suspension with champion undercarriage. If the calipers look like VW calipers, it is 99% Champion. Not knowing the year that the Kit was manufactured (2012, 2013 or later) it is hard to identify the brake system Lehman used prior to Champion without pictures. Could be a couple different types. Does it have a parking brake ?

    It does have a parking brake on the right side if you sitting on the bike I do believe it is VW brakes on this trike I also need to get the Parking brake adjusted as you have to pull it to the max to get it to hold I feel it probably needs brake pads and a parking brake adjustment the tag on the swing arm is stamped with a 2016 date code along with some other numbers before it
