Paughco's new TRIKE CONVERSION KITS have got to be the coolest thing to hit the industry since Capt. America. Seriously, Paughco has made converting your Sportster from 2-wheels to 3 a simple, do-it-yourself proposition that is certainly going to evolve into a whole new trend in chopper design. While the company will be offering these bolt together tike kits for most popular H-D models, they are currently shipping the custom swingarm and rear axle pieces required to make the Sportster conversion. Both components bolt directly in place of the stock swingarm assembly and utilize the stock belt or chain, depending on model. Once they're fitted, add your choice of GM 5 x 4.75 bolt pattern wheels and tires and you're set. The rear axle assembly features a 70T 1 1/2" wide belt pulley or 51T chain sprocket, brake rotors, chrome 4-piston calipers and limited slip differential. Overall width, as shown, with wheels and tires, is 49 inches, and stock shocks bolt directly to the new swingarm and OEM shock mounts. Rear axle assemblies are finished in black powder coat and the swingarms are shipped as raw steel. Paughco Trike swingarms are offered for XL models 1986-2010 and the axle assemblies can be ordered for both chain and belt applications. Call Paughco for details before ordering at 775-246-5738.
