Essential part to go from 2 to 3 wheels, a trike rear axle is a big weight handicap for its road velocity. If you didn’t know, the average weight of a trike rear axle is about 155 pounds. Santiago Choppers decided to conceive a new model whose shell being in aluminum weights only 82 pounds, trimming almost 50% of the fat. The shell being in aluminum you can get fancy by getting it polished or powder coated. This new rear axle kit is sold with 2 discs and 2 complete brake calipers from Wilwood. The company also sells swingarms for all trikes built from the ground up or 3 wheel conversions from factory bikes. Made In The USA. Patent Pending. Santiago Choppers (Dealers welcome).
