    Victory Cross Country trike
    Finished turning my Cross Country into a trike. Seams my balance isn’t what it used to be. Yes that is a Harley trunk. Couldn’t locate a victory trunk anywhere, and it was only $250. I have other pictures if interested 964FF431-3218-4AD5-95DE-6B1A4369FE9D.jpeg

    Definitely make a list of spare parts, many will probably sell to help you offset the costs of the conversion.

    Nice job. I have a trike that I use for local tours. If a trike extends your riding life, so be it. It is better to continue riding than it becoming a distant memory.

    Looks great! I'd like to hear more about what type of kit you used and your experience putting it together. Are you getting used to riding it?

    13,000 is about right. I chose the Roadsmith kit. It’s one of a few that will let an individual put the kit together. Most you have to have installed. I got my kit from Cycles and Stuff from Murfreesboro Tn. but they went out of business. I had to have the fiberglass body cleaned up and painted but I was very happy with the Roadsmith kit. I took a lot of video as I took my CC apart.

    It is different to drive that’s for sure but nothing you can’t get used to. I took lots of video as I took my CC apart. I chose a Roadsmith kit because I liked it, and they sell to individuals, most company’s don’t do that. I’ve been a mechanic for a long time so the kit was fairly easy to assemble. My kit was around 12,500 or so but are probably 13,000 or so now. You have a direct number to a factory person that I took advantage of on several occasions. Instructions are very good also.

    Thank you. I like your kit also. Quite similar to my Roadsmith. As far as the color goes, I picked the same color from a bunch of color chips 3 times in a row so I thought I would go with it, and I can’t remember what the name of the color is.

    As far as parts I have, rear wheel and brake rotor, drive belt, handle bars, hard bags ( black cherry), brake lights, taller back rest, swing arm assembly, mirrors, and more. I’m new to this so I’m not sure how to go about a parts list everyone can see.

    I'd suggest individual photos, maybe start a new thread linking to the marketplace, listing them in marketplace with what you want for them. A lot of stuff will sell quick, a few items won't sell at all or will take awhile. The belt would be iffy, I wouldn't sell a used one just because I would feel bad if it snapped on the buyer. Good luck though.

    Does the kit have a reverse system with it? I don't see the Victory reverse kit mounted.
