The front end geometry will be designed for two wheel use, as such it will have more trail then you would want with a sidecar or trike which means heavy steering as a three wheeler. Hard to tell just from photo how we will reduce trail. One might at first glance if they did not understand front end geometry thing that they could simply change the length of the linkage arm. This would move the front wheel forward but it would be changing the rake, not so much the trail. The confusion come with the fact that most people and companies selling triple tree's for conventional forks call it "raking" the front end which it is not. It just looks that way. More then likely a new fork assembly will need to be developed that moves the axle forward.
We will not be developing this, to much steeling of designs in the Goldwing market. The trailer hitch we use to make that was stolen by add on accessories is a prime example. Part for part the same as ours, even fit in our production jigs.
