Long before the latest rise in popularity of trike and trike conversions, Paughco was all over three wheelers built around HD power plants, frames and other OEM driveline components. Today the company offers trike enthusiasts with one of, if not the largest selection of 3-wheel conversion products. This focus on trike conversions is evident in their comprehensive collection of rear axle drive assemblies. With units designed specifically for use in converting Sportster, Softail, FXR, Dyna and chain drive models they have just about every possible configuration covered. Made in the USA, Paughco’s rear axle assemblies feature the finest quality components and rugged construction. Housings are constructed from precision cut and welded 1″ x 4″ and 1″ x 2½" rectangular tubing. Axle tubes are precision crafted from 2 3/8″-diameter thick-wall tubing and solid steel, CNC machined carriers house US-made Dana 44 spider gears. Automotive-style Timken-type splined wheel hubs provide exceptional strength and are designed for severe use applications. Disc brake components include black Wilwood two-piston calipers and two-piece 11.09″-diameter rotors with an offset hat. Each complete rear axle assembly retails for $2995.95 as shown here and is shipped finished in gloss black powder coat.
