Starting a trike conversion for a local customer, his son owns a motorcycle shop in the area and recommended Dying to Ride to do the build instead of his shop. Nice recommendation and referral!

Saw the project this morning on Face Book, Waiting with anticipation to see how it comes out. Which kit are you going to use for this build?

  I will be using D N A Specialties kit including the body. DNA kits are very similar to a  Harley Tri-Glide.

Pictures of the build. Maybe Tank can group them in one post I don't know-how. The motorcycle's original color is glacier white pearl with silver pinstriping that had to be matched on the body and fenders. The trunk door has a hidden remote latch. Customer wanted the original backrest reused.
