Compare it to (csc) California Side Care, I hear they are top quality
California Side CARE????? that a new one? ;):joke:
just busting your chops there :lol::lol:


As for Lehman, they are as good as any, most of the major trike kits are good, the installer makes all the difference.....ride as many as you can, make you choice as for what YOU like and feels good to you....
remember Installer, installer, installer.....:yes1:

Solid axle=stiffer ride. If you wish to have a more compliant ride I doubt this make would be satisfactory.

I have a 2006 Lehman Monarch II conversion and I have no problems at all. I like the no lean aspect of the trike and I agreee with all the installer is everything. Good installer good trike bad istaller bad trike.

Lehman makes a nice trike kit, uncomplicated, functional and solid with a big trunk lid and not hardly any moving parts to worry about. All of the current kits are made well, but are only as good as the one who put them together.

I have an 08 Lehman and have had no problems. The one thing that swayed me to the Lehman is the trunk lid. I checked out the CSC and Champion, I could just picture my wife useing the pull down lid as a resting place while loading the trunk. I myself like the stiffer ride.

Lehman trike

I have a 2006 Lehman, and for me, I could not ask for more in a trike. I went to the dealership with my mind made up to purchase a differnt conversion. At that time I owned a 1998 GL 1500 with a Lehman kit. It rode worse than a log wagon with square wheels, and the headshake was horrible:eek:4: Why then did I choose another Lehman ? After riding both the conversion that I THOUGHT I wanted and the Lehman Monarch 2, both built by the same installer, I prefered the Lehman. There is no comparision between the older Lehman kits and the Monarch 2. It is, as others have stated a simple, reliable, design with very few, if an, "buy it from me or it ain't available" parts. Others have given you the best advice, ride all the different brands you can and I think really get to KNOW the installer/seller. You have to buy what suits you. If I can answer any other questions for you, just let me know. Kruz ez, Dave

Don't ask about any trike. Go ride as many as you can and make notes on what you liked and don't like. This one rode this way, that one rode that way, test riding is how you get informed, plus it will make you happier because you got what you wanted because you know this is the trike for me.

You, more than likely, will pay for the softer ride in maintenance costs down the road. Solid Axle not much to go wrong with it. Ride them all and make sure the installer is great.
I am curious, why do you believe there is more maintenance cost associated with a IRS?
