    Smile Need suggestions for bolt on trike kit

    I am 85 years old. I still ride but my kids are more than alarmed when the subject comes up....I am hoping to find a bolt-on trike kit (voyager, towpac, etc.,) with no particular preference...I would appreciate it if I received recommendations from "you folks" as to what one to buy..

    I am not interested in conversions...I don't have deep enough pockets for that.

    I have two bikes:

    2008 Honda Rebel 250,

    1996 Honda VLX Shadow, 600 cc.

    The 96 fits me better...the 2008 is easier to handle as a two wheeler..

    I will only be getting a bolt-on uniut for one of them.

    Price is important, but not the main thing. I would not be installing it myself. No longer handy.

    (I know longer have the Harley trike.)

    Whatever bike I end up with a trike kit on it, the other bike will be sold...

    Thank you for suggestions..
    Grace + Peace

    Bob you only really have one choice. The Honda 250 would be severely under powered even if you could find something that would fit.

    What I really suggest is look around for a used one that is all ready setup. I've seen Yamahas and Kawasaki's with low mileage with added wheels for a couple of grand because the demand is low. Sell what you have a get one taht is already done. Be a lot cheaper then finding one to fit what you have and having it installed
