    When I say Tricolour, I'm referring to the Irish national flag.

    A little Irish flag above the number on the lid of the coin compartment in front of the filler cap, properly done with lacquer on top.

    I'll get a picture and post it tomorrow........ I think it's a fantastic touch of class from a foreign distributor.

    Thanks MGN54!! It started out as a 2016 Softail Slim S and I added a Frankenstein Trike kit. Frankenstein specializes in kits for Harleys covering most years. They are a quality kit with excellent fit and finish using quality car parts, which include Ford 9" axles and a Dana spyder differential, ( which allows the outside wheel to rotate faster on curves). They have 2 wheel size choices- 15x215, and 15x265, which come mounted and balanced. I went with the fat wheels which gives it more of a hot rod look. :D I included their link below and pics of the back end.

    Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt""

    I have never ridden any other kind of trike but from what others say is if you want a cushy Cadillac type ride you will want a kit with independent rear suspension. These kits use your current suspension and have a straight axle. This rides more like a sports car so you will feel the bumps more, but the handling is incredible. It corners like you are on a rail with no body roll. Due to the low center of gravity and wide stance it does not even think about raising a wheel when taking corners at insane speeds. :D Me and a few friends did the whole skyline drive BRP last summer and I had no problem keeping up with them on corners. The interesting thing is if you find yourself going too fast in a corner the front wheel will skip slightly to let you know to ease off. The sport type ride is not for everyone but personally I love it.

    What kind of axu lighting do you have on that? I've been thinking about LEDRider lights in the factory position, but don't know what else I want to add to brighten up the night.
