Not that it matters, but their websight lists the conversion @ $8,195.00 for the VROD. You might be talkin' installed. Either way, in this economy he will be lucky to get that much for it, but it only takes 1 buyer that wants it to get it sold ! Trikes sell pretty well, but the VROD trike isn't going to appeal to the "typical" trike buyer.

Yep, that was installed. He picked up the V on his trailer and took it straight to Motor Trike.

How much ????

I think that your friend is pulling you leg on how much he spent. I just triked my 03 v rod and motor trike dealer here wanted $13,000 tax included ,out the door to do everything. At $10,000 for a motor trike conversion that would be base price + texas taxes. what about paint and $1,200 for installation? I got a frankenstein trike kit installed. the base price is $6,250. + Wheels & tires+ fenders & brackets+rear pulley+Paint+installation ,EZ steer fork rake, total out the door was with taxes included $9,250. $4,000 less than the motor trike dealer here wanted. $10,000 for a new motor trike on a v rod was a great bargain IMOP, if that is what the correct and real price was. , HAD TO GO 3 WHEELS DUE TO AGE AND HEALTH PROBLEMS. anyways this is how my 03vrod trike turned out curley

Looks great, Curley. I think the V-Rod makes a great platform for trikes.
