Our line up of trike models has been extended to include the 650 Suzuki Savage (aka S40 Boulevards) which you can peruse at:

http://www.thetrinitytrike.com/roadster/savage/index.html

This is the first one that has been done with something other than silver paint or bare metal polishing on the rear.  This is best seen in the first picture on the page.  In addition to the fenders, he painted the axle tubes and all of the bright diamond plate (i.e. on the fender skirts and the cover plate over the swingarm).  Rides and handles even better than it looks and is very comfortable at highway speeds.  With the belt drive and massive amounts of low end torque it is one of the better choices for a "low end" trike conversion.

Next out of the barn are a pair of the big twin Kawasaki Nomads and our first HD Road King.

I love the painted tubes!!!

Great move with that one. Really looks awesome. Is it as smooth to ride as that GV250?

Actually yes, the low speed handling is every bit as good as the GV250 you road last month.  The pictures don't do it justice -- the cloudy conditions made the slight difference in the color matching stand out even more (the customer had his own painter!  Huh)  All the guys at the shop agreed that a partial paint on the rear assembly ties it altogether very well.  I expect to see more done this way.

Me too, after riding this thing around!  Makes me all the more anxious to do a Royal Enfiled (especially one of those new models that we on the forum the other day!!)

For someone on a shoestring, especially if they are going to want to haul around a passenger, they being almost the same price, I'd recommend the Savage over the GV250!  They'd be very less likely to want to "move up" from there in a short while.

I don't care for the Savage too much, but I'll take that one. Cheesy
