I have looked at the Roadsmith and the CSC. Currently we are contemplating a conversion, but unknown if it will be 5 months or 5 years; however, we have some extreme trips planned for retirement and 3 wheels appears to be the most reasonable.
While I loved both kits, I would currently choose the CSC based on just 4 issues.
1. CSC retains the factory linked brakes and ABS
2. CSC has upgraded performance brake options (and since I intend on pulling a trailer, braking will be my #1 priority)
3. CSC has approximately 50% more on-trike storage then the RS
4. CSC has optional rear springs which appear to be more in-line with towing a trailer
I wish the additional fuel tank was as large as the RS and the front end of the Eurowing looks interesting (cannot get enough information on the rest of the conversion) and it is being offered as a separate conversion (uses a CT in the front).
Since I have some time to wait, maybe the options will narrow in these areas.
I have been looking for used trikes, to circumvent the $15,000 conversion and have found much fewer CSC conversions for sale on the open market, but that may because there are less sales of this kit (I do not think so, as a large majority I see in western FL are CSC.
These 2 (RS and CSC) currently would be my choices based on today's information. :nerd:
Pooch, do most folks run a car tire on the back of the "reverse trikes"? I assume a MC tire would wear quickly?I went with a reverse trike, Endeavor. Less expensive to modify my wing and it retains the original saddlebags and trunk and it has extra storage in front. Fuel mileage is reasonable if I keep it under 80, LOL There's lots of trikes out there but choose a good installer. YMMV
