Buy or convert

Post by neil stait » Mon Aug 21, 2017 12:57 pm


Ideally I would like a VW Trike but I have no mechanical knowledge and could probably get scammed very easily

In your opinion would it be a better option to buy something like a Honda Goldwing motorcycle and have it professionally converted

This would seem a very expensive option but if I buy a VW trike that is a death trap the motorcycle conversion might be a better idea

Thank you

What Lep said, but decide what you want first a VW trike is going to be different to a bike trike. Can't go wrong with buying something off the Dr or the classifieds on the forum at least you know it will be honest. I've been bitten by taking someone at their word buying a trike, easily done
